Every night before I fall asleep, I find myself controlling every breathe I take, this disrupts my breathing pattern and so when I lay down to fall asleep, I feel like I'm suffocating. I feel like I'm not breathing enough so my mind becomes conscious of every breath I take. I find myself sitting up rapidly taking gasps for air. This goes on for about a few hours before I get tired enough to fall asleep. I know it's just anxiety, but HOW DO I BREAK THE CYCLE!? I wish my head could just touch the pillow and poof I'll be asleep. But no, my mind says "it's time to make you feel like you are gonna die." Does anyone know how to get rid of unwanted thoughts? This same thought and fear of me stop breathing is so frustrating and has taken over my sleeping time. I fear of dying in my sleep so much its so annoying.... 😢
