Ask for Help! By C. Matthews
This is so petty but I just learned a valuable lesson. I almost died in my sleep. I've been fighting a cold and I was dreaming about something when my nose closed up in real life. I couldn't breathe, but I was asleep. In the dream I fussed at my son, I fussed at my husband; I fussed at everyone there. But in actual reality, I couldn't breathe. I tried to open a window in the dream to get some fresh air when suddenly I felt like I was about to die. I finally started screaming (in the dream) "I can't breathe!" Just before I ran for medical help I realized I was dreaming. Then I opened my mouth and woke up. But that just goes to show you. Stop hiding your feelings, taking things out on everyone else. If something is bothering you, tell someone. Stop holding it in and being mean as a snake. You're literally killing yourself. Ask for help.
