feels like I'm making myself breathe

It feels like my breathing is being forced. I know it sounds silly, but I've been so anxious all day today.

I have this alot. It feels like I'm breathing is very thick air and it is an effort to inhale/exhale. The best thing I've found is to try to forget about it. Your body will breathe normally. Even if you pass out, your body will still go on breathing. It is automatic. If you can forget about it, you will become more naturally. I know that is easy to say but the more you think about it, the harder it will seem to breathe. Try to distract yourself with reading or listening to music or watching tv.
