Resulting in more stress at the fact my throat feels like it is closing up. I know concentrating on breathing is supposed to be good. Counting to ten, in and out. But it generally makes me more aware of my stress as when I am stress I find it difficult to breathe in and out and distraction usually works best to get it under control. Also concentrating on the moment, when I currently feel like shit in the moment or am in pain, have a headache, am wearing something uncomfortable there always seems to be something else. I am doing it wrong obviously but what can I do. I’m sure there must be other people with the same problem. I try counting to 10 or 100 in English which I can do too easily, so I try Japanese or French which I have to concentrate to do…something more physical still works better, involving music and moving!
