Always Thinking About My Breathing

I am always tuned into my breathing pattern and the thought that at any moment I will stop breathing and die. It is really bad when I lie down to sleep, beacause it's just me and my breathing. I started Paxil CR and I hope the obsession fades away. Does anyone else do this???

Re: Always Thinking About My Breathing

OMG I finally found someone that has this too. I have been deathly afraid to go to sleep thinking I would not wake up and I would die and not ever see the world again. I was in terror thinking about it and it was causing me to freak out and have panic attacks before bed. I am on 40mg of Prozac and 36mg of Concerta and I was doing good for a while until the Prozac was increased. My DR Increased it thinking it would help with my OCD and it did for a while but then I had these obsessive thoughts of death and dying and everything was over for me. So I know what you are dealing with and I am not sure myself what it is or why it happens I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone in this.
