Does anybody have any advice for how to deal with asthma that's purely in your head? I've had asthma since birth so I'm well aware of my triggers and carefully avoid them but if for whatever reason, I find myself without an inhaler e.g it occasionally runs out or it gets misplaced, I almost instantly become tight chested and wheezy, never to the point where I feel I'm in trouble but just enough so its uncomfortable. I've tried breathing exercises, drinking black coffee etc but it seems once its lodged in my head, it cant be shifted until I'm able to use an inhaler. I know the obvious answer is 'just don't think about it' but sometimes that's easier said than done. Just keen to know if anyone else has experienced anything similar that might be able to help.
