Surprisingly, the breathing took away that awful feeling of stress, dread, depression, and shakiness that has been almost non-stop for the last two weeks.

I've heard people talk about breathing exercises, but I was always skeptical. I'm convinced now. I plan to learn more about the proper techniques and practice every day if possible.


so glad it worked for you.

yay
