... or rather, not being able to get enough air. No one is being strangled. I put this here, because I'd like to start Cold Deep armed with a bundle of words associated with this...

Let them fly, my pretties!

Hyperventilate.

Is that how you spell that? Anyway, you know what I mean!

Drown.
Choke.

Erm... that's all I've got at the moment.

asphyxiation, smother, stifle

Sorry, that's all I've got.

Pressure? Desperation? Helplessness?

Yes, Becca's got it! They can even be words you associate with suffocation *gasp* drowning!

Smish: When I think of hyperventillate, I think of anxiety attacks. (When I say think, I mean that I reach for the xanax in my purse.)
