... now wondering if I breathe rapidly to go with my increased resting heart rate...

I'd love fewer things to be going wrong, though, and not just to relieve the symptoms of ye olde stress-responsive chronic illness. But. Things are better than they could be. (please note that that statement is not intended to be a challenge for people to screw things up more.)


KC - I don't know how you measure breathing. Count the number of times the shirt buttons move?


I haven't figured out how to count my own breathing without affecting the rate. Maybe I could take a video, I guess, and retroactively count?

There are chest bands that measure the expansion and contraction, though, for Science, that are used in things like exercise stress tests.


KC - I think our nostrils flare, maybe.
