The air is thick. It’s heavy. I can’t breathe.
I feel like someone is hovering. But no one is there.
My mind spins & whirls. So many things. It’s a jumbled mess.
I look around. I forget what I was thinking.
I can’t smile. I can’t laugh. All I can do is think.
I am lost. My focus is gone.
Did I do this? Did I do that? Was I supposed to do that other thing?
I can’t remember. I can’t feel. I am blind, with sight.
Everything is closing in. Yet nothing’s moving. It’s perception.
I am confused in my own mind.
Do you feel that? Did you hear that?
I am trapped. I need space.
You feel alone. But you’re never alone. Anxiety constantly pushes in.
