hello, recently i have developed bronchitis, a head cold, an allergy to peanuts (relatively minor), and a bit of asthma. ALL PSYCHOSOMATIC. ofcourse it's real, because i have real symptoms. isn't it amazing how we can get things we make ourselves think we can get? i'm not wheezing, thank g-d, but breathing is labored. my chest is not congested but my throat is. i'm wondering if anyone's had a similar experience. if so, please let me know. maybe there's some kind of psychic healling thing i can do? anyone have any experience with this? i know this is a new kind of approach to illness. it's not really been explored in our culture or society yet. but i believe we get how we feel and we feel how we think, therefore, we get what we think we get. so? you think i;m manic? maybe. but i'm sick too. and that's the honest truth. bye

Hello Atara,

If you are not feeling well, and have labored breathing you should see a real doctor not a psychic (quack).

Ernie

guess what, ernie? you're right! i went to an allergist, said i had bronchitis and i was really okay even thouygh it felt like i couldn't breathe. to get technical and gross, (sorry, people..) bronchial tubes, as he explained, can constrict in two ways:

1) the actual tubes become inflamed and shrink in size and
2) mucus or phlegm (sorry, guys, gross, i know, but nessecary to illustrate what i am talking about) covers the lining of the tubes and makes you feel like you can't breathe even though you are

inhalers and nebulizers only help type 1, so type 2 you have to treat with antibiotics and cough a lot and hope it will heal on its own, and, just, well, suffer, but know you are really breathing and that you won't die or need inhalers.

note, people: because of stress i was recently put in a mental hospital. coughing, miserable, givena higher dose of meds, i'm fine, now, b''h, but it was scary. (i was coughing and screaming at some points to get enough air in to my lungs. glad that's overwith. my psych doc heard me screaming and wanted to admit me. i just wanted to get away from my family. and i did! instead of my parents getting no sleep til i got better and stopped coughing, the paid staff who stayed up anyway at night did, so it worked out nicely!)

i am now getting rid of stress in my life, i.e. my psych class, voice lessons, and a boyfriend.

gtg talk to my psych teacher about dropping his class!

bye!
