|My head feels foggy.
I take a deep breath in and worry that it will make me explode - too much air in a body too longed deprived.
If I try to focus on one image for more than a second my vision clouds and the edges blur together.
Do I need sleep? Do I need water? Food?
I can’t tell.
If I just keep powering through the feeling will resolve itself.
If I can just force myself to keep going, I’ll get through the day.
But then there’s tomorrow.
And the next day.
And the next.
Can I power through them all?
There must be a breaking point.
Or perhaps I’ve already reached it and this is my body’s way of telling me to pause, to breathe.
But the breath makes the headache worse. Too much oxygen.
I’m about to pass out from not enough air and too much air at the same time.
Is this possible?
So what do I do?
How can I fix this?
Is it fixable at all?
I try another breath.
I fill my lungs and hold the air there.
My head feels foggy and my eyes close.
It feels nice to close my eyes.
