Figured out how to stop breathing issues!

I know now how to stop the episodes of not breathing! It happened four times and this is what I figured out. I have had four incidents and this is what they all have in common. I don't know why it happens but something irritates my throat and causes me to stop breathing for about a minute. First time it was a blueberry smoothie. The second and third time it was taking medication and it got stuck in my throat. The fourth time I was eating a Frito and didn't chew on up all the way and when I swallowed it caused me to stop breathing. So here is how I will avoid that. 1. No blueberry smoothies, 2 I will grind up all pills and take via my stomach tube. 3. Don't eat hard crispy food items. Simple really. I sent basically this message to my ALS doctors so they can hopefully tell me why this is happening. But I know how to stop it from happening so that is a win for me.

The only thing I think of that might be more frightening would be a pit bull / rottweiler thing coming at me with real bad internet. That thing was a beast!! Scary beast! And I .think of myself as an animal whisperer.. I still soiled my drawers. NOT YOU!! You just pulled some kinda Griz persona out of your arse and the dog froze in it tracks. The damedest thing!! Geez.. upsets me just recalling it! I was sure that I was going to have to fight like hell to save body parts. Thanks for saving my shit! I gotta go lay down after that recollection. LOL!!

Damn Frito! :) I am glad you have it figured out. I cannot imagine anything more frightening than not being able to breath.

The first I was scared to death. But I forced myself to relax and try to breathe through my nose and got through it. Second time wasn't as bad and I stayed calm. The next two times I spent all that time thinking about what was causing it and got through it.
