Thankyou very much,
I have not had a good year this year starting with the death of my stepfather who i was very close,and his mother also died then my fathers uncle,also two other members of my stepfathers family who i wasnt close but one being only 38.i also had the worry of my mum who was diagnosed with a heart problem but she is doing fine now.I was also informed that my father who i have not been in contact for approx 3 years is in a care home with altzimers and in the final stages.Thats a bit more guilt for me.
I used to suffer from anxiety in my early 20,s feeling that i couldnt breath and feeling dizzy.I have always had this thing about not being able to breath and chocking.Lately i have had a lump like feeling in my throat and ,excuse me going into detail, but spitting flem up.I have had a sputam test that come back as clear but i am so worried about this and think there is something dreadful wrong with me.
Edit:  I am sorry Gary, I had to edit out one sentence in your post. 1. No discussion of any illegal activity
Thank you in advance for your understanding.

I am so sorry for you many losses, I know how difficult that is and so hard to deal with. AS far as your Father, no guilt please, guilt is a wasted emotion.  If you want to go visit him, now is the time.

RE your throat problem, do you suffer from heart burn or have any history of an ulcer.  You might take a look at the GERD forum as you will see many people have that choking feeling.  Just a thought.

Keep on talking to us.

Take care

Hi kitt,
As it happens i have looked on the GERD forum and it does sound similar to what i have.I feel great at this moment but who knows about in the morning.I have not had ulcer but do get the burning.
I realy dont think i want to see my dad like that,however selfish it sounds.
Thankyou for your kind reply.
It is nice to have people to chat to who know what your talking about.
gary :-)
