Asthma attacks

I think when your suddenly cant breathe and I dont mean a wheezed chest i mean not getting any air in your lungs at all your head feels like its going to explode your eyes popping out of your head and being told another 5 minutes and you would of been dead. I think it traumatized me because i panic now when I struggle to breathe. I always feared drowning and thats exactly what it was like. Awful feelings pass your mind fear becomes uncontrolable never want to go through that again and haven't smoked since.

  • Hi Dodo777, I remember my father having Asthma attacks when I was a child. It was the most frightening experience to see someone gasping for air. I can understand how it left it's mark in your brain. A lot of traumatic health issues can be the cause of prompting anxiety.
