Breathing doesn't sem automatic anymore

I'm not sure if this even a respiratory issue.  I have recently felt like my breathing isn't automatic anymore.  In other words I have to remember to take a breath.  Does this sound normal?  I feel dizzy and sometimes feel like I am going to pass out.  Any suggestions?  I have recenltly been diagnosed with gastroparesis and have had problems with swallowing, breathing, laryngitis, hoarseness, coughing.  Thank you.
