This morning, when I step into my chem class, my heart starts beating rapidly. All of a sudden I feel hot and tired. I know this feeling well, and I don’t like it.

Desperate to make it stop, I grab my iPod. I feel self conscious putting my earbuds in while waiting for class to start, but I tell myself that it doesn’t matter. I turn on my favorite song and close my eyes. Breathing in and out, I will the outside world to disappear.

Slowly but surely, my heart rate goes down. I take a swig of water to cool off.

I’m okay.
