Last night, I think I consumed an all-time high of carbs. I was slurping in Coke with a straw, my lips barely able to grasp the stupid thing. Candy, chocolate, you name it, I ate it.
My stomach was churning and I just laid on my couch, feeling the energy being sucked right out of me.
That’s when things got weird. I’m not sure if I ever felt this way before (maybe I blocked it out of my mind), but last night, I felt my body shutting down slowly.
Breathing became eerily calm and slow. My body felt light and airy. My physical body felt defeated.
It was over an hour before I felt like something inside me sparked and back I came. This was one of the most frightening experiences. And yet today, if you saw me, it was like nothing ever happened.
This. is. invisible. illness.
