Got myself into a breathless panicky state yesterday, and didn't remember to try to control my breathing and calm myself down.... I need a tattoo on one hand saying KEEP CALM and PURSED LIP BREATHING on the other.
I had been wheezing all day when my neighbour asked for help catching a cat and kittens which she had found in her garden (could be worse the previous occupants asked for help to catch a sheep). She rang the RSPCA and I searched through her Leylandii hedge ... my breathing got worse and I managed to get home to find my inhaler and nebuliser were upstairs ...panic. Did reach them in the end as you will have guessed!
Trouble is episodes like this dent my confidence and make me so annoyed with myself.
And the cat hasn't been caught.
