There’s this pain that is stabbing me right in the middle of back. And it goes all the way into the front of my chest. With each breath is seems to sting just like the first time. Over and over.
My eyes feel droopy. I probably look just like Droopy at least that is how I feel. I keep thinking about my pillow. My covers. Nyquil and rest and yet, here I am at work. Staring at a computer screen with no idea how I got here.
There is a fog surrounding my brain today. I don’t know what to say when I answer the phones. I am not sure how to help anyone that calls. I am so sleepy and foggy. The back and chest thing is driving me nuts.
It makes me want to stop breathing. I can tell my breathing is shallow because of the pain. Maybe that explains the fogginess. Its lack of oxygen! Who knows.
I remember back when I smoked and how I would still have a cigarette even when feeling like this. I can’t even imagine doing that now.
I should go home.
I should stop breathing.
