Everything was happening so fast. The world was rushing all around her. People were talking, but she could not make out what they were saying. Everything was a blur. She felt out of this world.
Tears were streaming down her face. Her thoughts were scattered and overwhelming. Uncontrolled lights flashed before her eyes and the noise was unbearable.
A hand reached out and touched her shoulder. She looked up and saw a man speaking, his lips moving, but no sound followed. Fear crept into her eyes. She needed to run. She needed to escape.
She stopped. She took a deep breath and closed her eyes. She blocked out the lights and sounds; she ignored the world around her. She focused on the rise and fall of her chest and she calmed her thoughts.
She was alright. She could do this. She opened her eyes and saw that the world had settled down. The noise level returned to normal and she started to see clearly. The man was still there, looking concerned. She smiled at him. She had found her way back to reality.
