“It starts in the chest, the feeling of discomfort. You try to breath it out, but it only grows bigger. Your heart beats faster and your thoughts race. The pain is gathering, like a thick black lump. There’s no escape now, your whole chest is filling up. The dark cloud in your heart is taking over. Your chest, your throat, your mind, your body. It gets stronger and more painful. You start to hyperventilate. Your heart hurts so much, you think you are going to die.”
