A plastic bag on my head

You know what it feels like, with a plastic bag on your head, how you struggle to breathe, your lungs start to beg. Panic builds up inside, instinctively you fight back, trying to rip this bag off you want to survive. Time slows down, every second hurts, in and out on conscious thought, trying to figure a way out. Well welcome to my world, where anxiety thrives, a plastic bag on my head, is what it feels like. Contest: Paper or plastic - Susan Burch M.Mahauariki © 2012 2nd Place

    Breathing into a plastic bag = suffocation. Breathing into a paper bag = stress relief. Funny how that works.
