Sometimes it's hard for me to take a deep breath or "finish" the breath and I make myself yawn which then makes it feel better. What is this?

In brief: Depression

Most commonly this is associated with depression.
If this is not the cause then you should have a chest xray and pulmonary function testing performed to rule out lung or chest causes for this complaint.
