Excuse me while I suffocate

My throat feels like it's collapsing and I don't know why. I'm not stressed. I'm not sick. No panic attacks.  Just feeling so heavy.

So heavy I can't breathe.

That's a bad sign, right?


  1. Might have something to do with all those miles you rode. And maybe allergies.

  2. I found out exactly what it is... Globus Hystericus. And I think it's finally gone. OMG. It was terrible and scary.

  3. Sorry, I giggled, I researched and found these passage:

    "Globus hystericus is a Freudian diagnosis. It is used today to describe far more than neurosis. Those that follow a URI are due to patient awareness of their epiglottis and symptoms dissipate after examination to R/O cancer. Explanation is all that is required. Many describe this as a lump in the throat. "

    Crazy bitch. And yes, everyone is out to get you.

  4. I yiyi, that's not good. Are you feeling better yet?!?!?

    If it was me, after 20 phone calls to the doc I'd be in bed with a heating pad, hotwater bottle and a takeout menu until I felt better.

  5. I'm fine, Joanna. Thank you for checking. Turns out I had an episode of Globus Hystericus. Basically and anxiety based deal, which is so weird because I have no conscious anxiety. Some minor background noise, but nothing meriting a panic attack. It seems to have worked it's way out of my system and I am grateful. This "mind trick" was not my favorite thing. Discovered I really don't like the feeling of not being able to breathe while carrying a brick around in my throat.

  6. Please do not suffocate. Please do not suffocate. Please do not suffocate.


I do not solicit comments, but leave one and me love you long time!
