Olympics Olympics Olympics! and 'breathe'

So I've never mentioned it before but I seem to have developed a breathing problem over the years.  Basically when I get stressed, I've developed a pattern of breathing that is not good.  Shallow and whatnot.  This year is when this result of years of bad breathing has reared it's ugly head.  When something stressful happens, or if I get too excited suddenly, I get what is technically called a 'panic attack' where I am fighting for breath.  It sucks.  I've been working on breathing exercises and stuff, but in the meantime, I suffer.  Anyways, I don't want to get into all that.

My point is, I am a big fan of the Olympics.  And watching the Olympics is stressful!

This is the worst my breathing's ever been!  And all over something I love!  Craziness.

If I were to describe how it feels, this pretty much sums it up: (forgive the sketchiness)

It's like my lungs enjoy having my ribcage squeeze them so tight they can hardly take in any air.  Cheeky little things.

Writing about being stressed is making me stressed!  Calm, Bethany.  Calm.  Who knew I was such a stressed out person??  I certainly didn't.

Go Team Canada!!

coming up: a post about bums.
