Everything is starting to feel like it’s taking so much effort. Writing? So much effort, not just the actual typing, but the thinking of what to say and how to say it. No longer does it flow like a stream but instead like a leak down the cracks and crevices of some old road. It used to be natural, like breathing, didn’t even have to think about it, but now it’s labored, now I have to actually think about moving every muscle of my diaphragm to breath, I feel every inch of effort pulling at my ribs, my thoracic cavity increasing, everything, it should just be air in and air out, I hate it.
