Sweltering heat; pounding heart; cramping pain in her throat and chest. Feeling as if crushed by a boulder, she gasps for air with lungs that just won’t fill. Lips parched and cracked. Desperate for water. Fleeing. Frightened; yet trudging on. A spring of water in the distance. If I can make it to the spring, maybe, just maybe.
Ever feel like this? What? Isn’t this is a physical scenario? True. However, anxiety, worry, fear, etc. can cause this type of emotional experience.
