Hi there, you probably don't know me, we haven't spoken before, but I'm here :hug1:
Can you try to slow down your breathing? Focus on your breath, and try to slow it down?

Hi autumnalsprinkles

Have you tried some breathing exercises? Breathe in deeply through your nose, hold it for a second, and then let it out slowly through your mouth. :hug1:

It got to a point where i breathed so quickly i just stopped.
That reassurance of "I'm here" made me cry so hard.

(((autumnalsprinkles))) I know it can get quite lonely when you're struggling so much, and feel like you're all on your own. :hug1: Is your breathing a bit better? :hug1: What triggered this? :hug1:

Stillfighting makes a good point, such breathing is often, in my experience, triggered by anxiety over something. :hug1:

I'm not sure i can.
I'm totally blown away by somebody i met a year ago or so. My decision to attend certain recovery meetings has changed because i feel things can't move on if they stay the same.
