just breathe

I don’t have asthma. I don’t suffer from allergies.

Last night I woke up at 4am unable to breathe. It was the most… disconcerting feeling I have experienced in my entire life.

My body bolted upright and then I woke up struggling for air. I could feel a blocking in my lungs. I could inhale but no air was getting through it was very raspy. I woke up the spouse and poor guy couldn’t do anything for me except for pat me on the back. That really didn’t help but maybe the fact that he was awake did. It was almost like a panic attack, I think. My body finally calmed down enough to get air passed through to my lungs and then I was able to breathe.

I have a feeling I was in a nightmare and that’s what took my breath away. I tend to remember my nightmares but this one I did not. Now I am very interested to know what happened in my subconscious.
