The World Was Spinning

It came out of nowhere. I was just wasting time on the internet when suddenly I got a tightness in my chest. It was like God reached in and squeezed my lungs and heart in one fierce grip. My breathing was very shallow and I couldn't get enough air. I was racked with fear-mostly that the feeling would never go away. Things started to look surreal and the room started to spin like a merry-go-round. I laid on the floor in the fetal position for 20 minutes until I could breathe well enough to call my friend. I explained my problem and asked if she knew where to get any Xanax. She was at a party, but she left right away to bring me some. Just knowing it was coming calmed me down. I gulped it down and 20 minutes later, everything was back to normal, as if nothing ever happened.
