Body: *hands shaking like crazy, lightheaded, feeling weird*
Me: what, are you hungry?! Fine here’s some food!
Stomach: oh, what
Stomach: you want me to DIGEST this?
Stomach: I mean I guess
Stomach: but I hope you’re ready to lie down cause all energy sources are now diverting to digestion
Heart: WHAT ARE WE RUNNING? ARE WE RUNNING FROM A BEAR? SOMETHING INTENSE IS HAPPENING
Entire rest of body: *windows power down noise*

eating kale when you have a chronic illness
when you eat your favorite meal but you know it’s going to cause you pain later
when everyone is having fun at a party but your body makes you feel like you’re dying
WHEN SOMEONE LOOKS CONTAGIOUS
Being a spoonie while also trying to be social
Me: *is in pain*
Me: Toast seems like a safe meal. I’ll put in some toast.
Me: *Puts in bread*
Me: *Stands next to the toaster for a solid two minutes*
Me: What am I doing here?
When you can’t remember if you actually took your medication or you just thought about it.

Me: *falls onto the ground*
My mom: Did you just faint again?
Me: Nah, I just decided I wanted a closer look at the floor.
