My first time Take isn't about kisses or love, it's about one of the most scariest experiences I've had. Join me and I'll tell you about the time I felt my body shutting down and couldn't do anything about it.
Fun Fact: My body overheats very quickly. That's one of the main reasons why I don't like being hot. When I overheat, my body starts to shut itself down. The first time it happened I actually passed out. I was in a nightclub and I had been dancing a lot. I remember being really hot and needing to use the bathroom. I put my head down on the bar for a second and the next thing I remember is opening my eyes and not having my glasses on. My sisters were freaking out, but I don't remember passing out or anything. I thought I was scared then. The next time was 10 times worse.
The second time is a bit different.
I was at my sister's just hanging out. We were dancing and messing around. One second I was fine and the next I didn't feel so well. It started with my vision. It was like someone put a filter over my eyes. Everything became dull and kind of fuzzy. I kept trying to blink it away. No dice. Next came the hearing. I felt like I was in a tunnel. Everything sounded so far away. Something was clearly wrong. But I couldn't move. And I couldn't really talk. And then, it was like I was looking at myself. Almost like I was watching a movie. But I could still feel everything happening. Like my vision getting darker by the minute. And I remember thinking "I'm not ok" over and over.
Finally my older sister noticed that I had pretty much checked out of the conversation. She looked at me and immediately asked was I ok. She was standing right on front of me, but she sounded like she was outside. The me that was outside of myself was yelling "no! Something is wrong!" but all I could physically say was "I don't feel well". She asked what was wrong and I just kept repeating myself. I remember thinking "my body is shutting down, please help" but I couldn't form the words. The version of me that was watching this scene unfold was frantic. I was going to pass out. And there was nothing I could do about it.
At this point I could feel my body swaying. And I was trying my hardest to shake it off. My older sister knows me well. After a few times of asking me what was wrong and me repeating the same sentence she said "something is wrong". My vision was fading in and out now. I squeezed my eyes shut and finally was able to say "I'm hot". I didn't even recognize my voice. My older sister and another of my sisters helped me stand and guided me outside. The cool night air hit me and I remember feeling like the movie that I was watching had ended.
I closed my eyes and opened them and my vision was getting clearer. As the wind cooled me down, I begin to feel better. But the whole experience really shook me up. After standing outside for awhile and drinking water, I finally felt normal again. What was really scary was my sister explaining how I looked. She told me I looked really pale and she said that my eyes were blank. Her words were "it was like you weren't there". I wish I could say that it never happened again, but it has. And each time is just as scary as the first.
I know my "my first time" story is a bit different lol, but thanks for reading anyway!
