I feel like this is very specific but does anyone else have that compulsion that makes them feel like they can’t take a proper breath? As in it’s not a deep enough one? Sometimes I have to make myself yawn to make myself feel like i’ve had a proper breath. 
 

OCD makes us do such bizarre things.. 🤦‍♀️😂

Another poster did mention having breathing problems and focusing on this. I thought it might be the weather.

But it can be a part of that survival mode we go into when anxious/stressed. The heart rate increses, and unnecessary functions are shut down, but also we take more shallow breaths.
