    Yes, I have been having that issue as well the last few months. I take deep breaths, but feel as if I can't catch my breath sometimes. It can be scary for sure!

    I take deep breaths before I'm in a situation that causes increased anxiety.

    Oh my god, I can’t believe that I wasn’t the only one feeling this! I’ve been feeling like I haven’t been able to catch my breath and I didn’t know what to do or who to tell or where to start lol
