    I don't forget to breathe, but I do forget how to breathe. I can be lying down in bed and all of the sudden I will notice I am breathing, as soon as I become aware of the breaths I am drawing, it's like I forget just how fast or deeply I should be breathing. From there it's about 5-10 minutes of trying to settle my breathing into a comfortable pattern again.

    My breathing works fine when I am not aware I am doing it, the moment I pay attention is when I get confused.

    Wow, that kinda sucks

    I can understand having difficulty breathing cause of anxiety but forgetting how to breath sounds scary.

    considering that long, even, and deep breaths are associated with centering oneself and relaxation, i wonder if short, sporadic, or nonexistent breaths are really caused by tension or are themselves a contributor to the tension in the first place.

    This reminds me of sleep apnea, although in this case you're conscious. Breathing is normally autonomic, so you're overriding this system semi-decisively?

    This reminds me of an episode of the Fresh Prince I saw just the other day, when Will has to choose a teammate for a gameshow he goes on. He chooses Carlton over his good buddies Jazz and Tyriq, and eventually tells them it's because Carlton is better at gameshos, and the buddies take it the wrong way. So Tyriq tells Will, oh by the way can you remind me when to breathe?

    On a regular basis. I concentrate so hard, I'll start to feel dizzy, and realize I've not been breathing regularly.

    Or!! I'll focus so hard on breathing that it ceases to be voluntary, and I can't focus on anything else. That makes me mad.

    edit: Yeah, now that I read the whole thread, it's exactly as you described, Berberella. So irritating!
