Please help??

Do you guys ever feel like you don't hear your self breathing? I don't hear myself breathing so my mind says oh your not breathing, and it freaks me out I don't know what to do. My mind is playing tricks on me, I can't even sleep at night anymore because my mind says well if you close your eyes your not going to wake up again.. would this be anexity? Panic attacks? And does our body really never stop breathing. Does this mean I'm afraid of death? Does this mean I'm crazy? I'm going on an air plain tomorrow morning and it's freaking me out even more! Someone please help me through this. I'm so scared 😳 like I cry all the time because I don't want to die but I don't feel like anyone's listening. I've been like this for about 2 months and I can't figure out what to do..

You're not alone. It's a good thing you don't hear yourself breathing. I don't hear myself either. Everything that you're saying is a sign of anxiety which really sucks. You are brave and I promise you're not going crazy. You're just overwhelmed and anxious. You'll be okay ❤


Hi KenzieM, As for your breathing, you don't want to hear every breath. It means your nasal passages are clear as well as your lungs. Take it as a good sign. And yes, our body never stops breathing. It is an automatic function which keeps you safe through the night. It sounds like you have developed anxiety. I'm wondering if this trip prompted you to have these fears? Being so scared and crying is very draining. Of course you don't want to die and that too is a healthy sign. The forum is always listening and open to help support each other. I only wish you had sought professional advice 2 months ago. They might have been able to give you something to calm those fears. Meanwhile, stay strong, think positive thoughts and know that we are here for you should you need to reach out to us.
