Lately anxiety has taken over my life to the point I've had EKG, 24 hour heart monitor, sleep oxygen testing...well you know the drill. Just started with a therapist (one session so far) which has given me hope. I keep being told to breathe, that breathing will help when the attack overwhelms me and I think I am having a heart attack.
But I can't seem to grasp the concept. No amount of sitting or lying still and breathing helps. What am I doing wrong?
