The slight adrenaline rush/almost panic attack/anxiety feeling I got today at work was brought on by a picture. I was reading a bunch of random top 10 lists on the internet trying to pass the time that is oh so slowly dragging on at work. I was reading a list about the 10 worst moments in sports, and one was about some hockey player who had his jugular sliced open by another player's skate. Gross enough, right?
But then.....there was a picture.
A picture of this guy holding his neck that is spurting out blood which is staining the ice all around him. A line in the story said something about how when it happened a bunch of people puked and a guy in the audience actually had a heart attack. I felt like I was about to do both of those things as well.
I can usually handle gory, I use to watch lots of horror movies back in the day. But this....I just don't know. It was odd. And gross. And I felt like I was going to faint.
Stupid internet. I decide to stop googling medical ailments in a bid to keep my anxiety low, so I start looking at sites that are suppose to be funny/interesting/time wasters, and this is what happens?
Lame. And gross.
I'm better now, the whole episode lasted maybe a minute, but it was definitely weird.
