Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed that I forget how to breathe. And I just stand there, gasping, trying desperately to remember how to get oxygen into my lungs. Hoping that it will just magically happen.
I can feel my heart start to race, but I can't make it slow down. I can feel the back of my neck begin to bead with perspiration, but I am powerless to make it stop.
Everything about me begins to tighten and constrict and I am afraid that I will be crushed from within.
Sometimes I just stop. I can't move. I can barely think. Except to hope that this passes as soon as possible.
And I can get on with my life again.
