This morning is only the second time that I have felt 'life-threatened' (inability to breathe).
The previous occasion was several months ago - maybe even a year . . .

What was alarming was that I was 'awake' but unable to draw breath.
It was as if someone was throttling me.

I cannot be certain how long this condition lasted, but I was extremely distressed by the time I managed to be able to breathe normally, so much so that I was determined to stay awake.

Only now am I considering risking sleeping tonight.
