My Problem Now

i just have trouble with everything like when i play xbox i still get panic attacks and i  feel like i am manual breathing and if i stop manual breathing i am gunna stop breathing and i just want these bad thoughts in my head to stop so i can get my life back i just need tips on how to calm down from someone that has beaten anxiety because i am ready to beat it and get my life back but i just dont know how to because i dont believe half of the info that i am told because i just think negatively.

like tips on getting to sleep , health diet i am not fat i am fit because i did a lot of sports when i was younger but now i just eat bad foods and snack and drink pop all the time.also i need like good things to do because i just sit in the house on my Xbox and that is not helping.

i would consider taking anxiety medication but i am worried that it might interfere with my asthma medication because when i have like one wheeze noise from my chest it just makes my have a panic attack like i am in fear of dying witch is because of anxiety

just please help me and tips are greatly appreciated

Before you try meds have you tried therapy with a therapist who specializes in anxiety treatment?  That's the place to start.  As for doing things you know aren't good for you, that's what depression and anxiety do to us but anytime you want to do what's best for yourself there's nothing holding you back but yourself and the way you're thinking about things.  That's what therapy will work on.
okay thanks very much
