Hey, DJ, haven't seen you in a while. Good to see you again.

I think one of the reasons the focus of this board is weighted toward psychopharm is that it is an adjuct to the psychopharmocology tips site. But I don't think it has to be limited to pharm. In fact, very often, my posts are more about the experience of living with depression. I think there is room for both.

That being said, let me address your specific topic. I have found myself becoming increasingly sensitive to having anything touching my neck, the front part, oftencalled the throat. Today I am wearing a turtle-neck shirt and I am constantly pulling at the neck because it is bugging me, causing anxiety and feelings of being strangled. I don't know if the increased sensitivity is due to my depression, or due to my sleep apnea, which caused me to literally choke in my sleep (under control now with cpap), or due to the huge amount of weight I have gained in past couple of years that has made me practically "lose" my neck to my chins. Perhaps it is a combination.

When I have performance anxiety, like having to speak in public, my voice has a mind of its own. It starts to shake rattle and roll, and then when I notice this happening, I feel more anxious and the voice problems worsen.

My voice definitely sounds different depending on my mood. Sometimes in a therapy session, it varies depending on what I talk about. It is not consciously done, but I am becoming more conscious of it.
