Re: Anxiety and breathing
Have you seen your doctor to talk about your breathing? Talk to your doctor first - ask him about the possible side effects. I used this medication years ago and never had any problems with it. I am not a medicine taker. For me, I tried it but it was like putting a band aid on my wound but never really fixed my problem. I wanted to know why I was feeling this way so I went to group session with other people who had the same problems with anxiety. Some people have to use medicine but I found a way to not use it. I went to acupuncture session which really helped, then I meditate, and exercise. Meditation and deep breathing has really helped me alot because when I do get the thought of "I am going to die or I can't breathe" I focus on my meditation and I do what you do, distract myself. It is only a thought and thought can be changed.
