“Hey, Lisa. Wake up!”
“You need to wake up. You aren’t breathing!”
I can barely hear his voice. Nothing seems to be making sense. I have to stay focused. I am struggling. Struggling to breathe, struggling to think, struggling to fight the fog that seems to be closing in on my mind.
From a distance, I hear his voice shout out even louder now, “LISA, WAKE UP! YOU ARE NOT BREATHING!”
He sounds so desperate. I feel so confused. I hear myself screaming back, “What is going on? What is wrong? I need to figure this out!” Yet, my lips never spoke a word.
I am fading…. fading in and out of blackness, where nothing - not even myself, exists. My head fell forward, my body folding into an awkward position.
“LISA, WAKE UP! YOU ARE NOT BREATHING!”
I am fighting hard to make sense of what I am hearing. Someone is shaking me. From a far-away place, I hear the words being yelled again, “LISA, YOU ARE NOT BREATHING!”
My brain was screaming an answer, but I still wasn’t making a sound. “Oh my God. Just leave me alone
I am slipping into an unfamiliar place. It’s so peaceful… comfortable… warm. “Lisa, wake up, you are not. . .” His voice faded away.
Everything is dark. Everything is quiet. No more pain! I feel nothing except sweet relief. I no longer hear his voice.
It’s finally over. I did it!
