Anxiety surprises you when you do not expect it : it takes you suddenly, as you are engaged in completely normal and customary situations . You are anxious and you cannot care, because your heart starts to beat as if you want to get out of your chest, your head starts to turn and you feel confused. Breath is getting faster and more troubled, but air is never enough, you are missing and you are afraid to stop breathing from one moment to the next. And if the breath stopped at night? Should it stop being automatic?
Why are you afraid to stop breathing?
The fear of stopping to breathe in panic is a constant, a widespread and distressing symptom. It is the panic that seeks to seize every instrument to convince you that you cannot win it, that he is stronger than you, even your automatisms, even of your nature, of your vital functions.
Breathing will never be interrupted. You will never stop breathing because of panic and nothing has changed in your operation. What happens when you concentrate on your breath and thrust your fear of stopping breathing is something brilliant. Yes, just so, GENIUS!
Any panic symptom should be read as an alarm signal of its vulnerability. The alarm is triggered by panic, he himself is scared. Panic is like a parasite that just feels like being in danger, clutches its vice and ends with a curly. Have you ever been bitten by a mint? Ticks bite your skin and stick to sucking blood; if you try to take it without caution, the mint will tighten so much your grip to risk splitting. In this case, only his head remains, with the jaws attached to the skin, while the body detaches and stays between your fingers.
Do you understand? The mint prefers to die rather than getting away from you. It risks her own life as panic. As soon as panic feels conscious, relaxed, calm, immersed in reality, alarms, and fears of being overwhelmed and attacking. Try to imagine panic attacks just like the attack spurred on by a parasite. It often happens that in the process of cure, in the war against anxiety and panic, they encounter strong resistance or defenses. It’s the monster that rides and tries to defend itself until the last. In general panic your well-being is a threat!
So what can be done against the fear of suffocating?
What you do with a mint that tightens its grip more and more is to raise it to the skin. There are two ways: rotate it with a tweezers so that they turn the jaws until they disengage, or immerse them in an oil or viscous liquid that will cause it to lose adherence, choking it.
With panic, you can do something very similar. Does he clench his grip and make you feel a strong lack of air? Does it astound you and make you sick, fast, desperate? As soon as you try to breathe, more you try to convince yourself that it will stop you from breathing. Well, you have to take the ground from under your feet. Break it down, crush it, take on it and fight it with its own weapons.
Fighting anxiety and panic attacks with breathing
Take her breath. Breathe less, no more. Breathe more slowly, not faster. Stay in apnea, stop the game he wants to direct. Take the command. You can do it at the time of need, but it will be better to practice you in other situations, to succeed in the double intent of immediately blocking a panic attack and telling you several times a day you are the one you command, not him. You control and manage your breath, not him.
The breathing exercises you can do anyone at any time of day, is perhaps the more practice being fast, simple, effective and less expensive.
The fear of stopping breathing could be related to a general sense of chest strain, a general feeling of air loss, and asthma like symptoms. This is what I have tried many years ago. These disorders can have different origins and depend on many variables. Among these the most important are:
- Smoke: If smokes start thinking about getting rid of cigarettes and quitting, I’ll tell you half without measure;
- Physical Activity: If you are sedentary, if you are not moving absolutely, you will have to start, much could depend on it;
- Food and digestive problems: Incorrect intolerances and habits can trigger digestive tract paths, which in turn are gasoline on fire for anxiety and panic.
One of the most insidious and difficult to diagnose intolerances, but extremely widespread is gluten intolerance, or gluten sensitivity. As demonstrated by many recent researches, there are asthma, respiratory problems, swelling, and sense of oppression, confusion, and lack of anxiety among the symptoms of gluten intolerance.
