I am scared to go to sleep. Every now and then my throat vapor locks while i am asleep. It has maybe happened 8 or 9 times my entire life. I think its heartburn that causes it. the acid comes up, and gets locked into my throat. I bolt up unable to breathe. I finally get a breathe in if i brathe through my nose, but i cough and sputter fora at least 5 minutes, and it all burns so bad, and i have a hard time catching my breathe. well for some reason lately I have been scred to go to sleep. All i think about is what if it happens again, i could die in my sleep. my husband stated i bolted staight up in bed a few nights ago, saying "SOMEONE HELP ME". then laid back down and went back to sleep. Now the DR wants me on Resperdol which causes you to be drowsy. i dont want to take it, i know i should, but i will have to force myself. I am so sick of living this way!!!! Does anyone have any ideas, i need to get some sleep.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
