more yellow birds

"More Yellow Birds" by Sparklehorse

And the Captain Howdy lit upon my shoulder
And he left me with sulfur and rooms full of headaches
I fell in with snakes in the poisoned ranks of strangers
Please send me more yellow birds for the dim interior

Yellow as the color of disease and insanity, are the motifs that I am thinking of. I am, as I explained to Matt, experiencing profound apathy. Lots of people are freaking out; it feels apocalyptic. And familiar, somehow, too. When was the last time this happened? Did it ever happen?

Yesterday, I thought I was about to die. I woke up to a sudden and agonizing pain in the left side of my neck, and it was hard to get up, and I couldn't move my arm too well or look to my left for the pain. It was a strained muscle. I got up, stood aimlessly here and there in the kitchen, then sat on the edge of my bed; which is when I felt a tingling everywhere, and my vision got struck with pins and needles; I don't know how to explain it, except that it felt like everything was pixels and in each of those pixels I could see every single color, not just the dominant color, and they were all converging into this... not blackness, it wasn't dark, it was just nothing; everything became the same color, or non-color, and I kept trying to breathe, slowly and deeply, but nothing seemed to be staying in my lungs. I started sweating profusely. Like, profusely. I had a hot flash of some sort, the sweat was coming from every pore, like— I went from normal temperature to feverish almost instantly. I was scared the pain in my neck was, like, the pinching of a very vital nerve or something.

I started praying. I thought I would throw up or pass out. I prayed to God that I would live. I said, please, please, please, please let me stay alive, please please please please, I want to live. I thought about how if I passed out I'd have to hope someone would come into the kitchen soon, and see me through my open bedroom door collapsed on the floor.

Then, for no particular reason, I decided to go to the bathroom; I thought it'd be a better place. To throw up? Pass out? I guess pee. I was hoping I could pee out the nausea. I groped my way there, I think I was stumbling. I remember I could sense shifting light, but I could not see, and I slapped my hand on the table to make sure I was going the right direction and then I was on the toilet and my butt was slipping a bit from the amount of sweat slicking my thighs and cheeks. I peed, and as I was peeing, I saw the bathmat again. I felt so relieved, I immediately started crying and I couldn't stop for a while. I called Marie to try and calm down, and Nadiya made me soup, and I went to the doctor later where they gave me a heat pack and prescribed some muscle relaxers. They said the blindness thing was probably just a panic attack (hmm). It hurt to do most things all day yesterday! Including sit up!

But I feel better today. I still can't really look all the way left, and it sometimes hurts to laugh but it's all good. I just can't believe how much I don't want to die.

Everywhere feels empty. People are saying Brown is going to shut down by next week. I wonder if they will make us go home. I want to drop all of my classes. I am having a very hard time caring. I am sleeping a lot. I am wondering if I'm depressed or something. I am not sad and I'm not anxious. So what is left? It feels like nothing. That makes me want to cry, I don't want to be nothing.

Anyway, all is okay. Всё в порядке. Todo va bien.

I'm lying, I feel something. Feels like anxiety. Hmm. I will go lie down for a little while and wait for this to pass.
