Deep breath problems

I am 20, about 6 feet, and weigh about 220, decent of muscle though. I do smoke cigs but thats it. Never drink or do drugs. No health problems other than a polynidal cyst, and 1 1/2 years ago, emergency appendectamy.

2 months ago my best friend died of a heroin od. It came as a shock and baeically shut me down. I went into a bad stage, but realized it and got out. Went to the hospital for my first anxiety attack shortly afterwards. I started realizing nobodys invincible. Stopped eating friend foods, cut back on smoking and soda, and started walking alot. Lost about 20 pounds in a few weeks.

My issue is, for about a month, i cant get a nice deep breath. It comes and goes, but when it comes its ridiculous. I dont get dizzy or light headed or anything, and i can breath fine, i just cant get a good breath. It takes 3-4 times to get it. Anybody have any reason or tricks to fix this. I am under alot of stress with college, and work, my friend passing, and recently after 20 yeats, contact with the other half of my family. So maybe its that, but im not sure cuz its getting old now.

Any help or tricks or breathing exercises or anything would be great.
