By Melissa Nelisse | March 19, 2018 3:30pmIt is a beautiful, cool, and cold day in March.
I am sitting at my computer, enjoying a cup of coffee, when a bright flash of light cuts through the fog.
The flash quickly fills the room, sending me into a sudden sprint through the halls of the hotel.
My eyes fill with tears, and I feel as though I am about to vomit.
I’m on the ground, face down, the sweat running down my brow.
The water is just inches away from my face.
My head is in my hands, and the water is rushing over my head.
I’m trying to get up and I can’t.
The cold is so intense I can barely breathe, but the water still comes.
My heart is pounding, but I can only hold it in my throat.
I grab the water and rush to my feet, but it’s too late.
The sudden wave of water hits me in the face, knocking me to the ground.
I roll onto my back, but don’t let go.
The pain from the blow to my face and head is so strong it makes my head hurt.
I try to move my legs, but they are just as swollen as the water.
I have no energy left, so I just sit there, paralyzed.
The next thing I know, I am being lifted up and onto a small table.
The table is full of saltwater, but as soon as I’m on it, I’m instantly cold again.
The next day, I find myself in the hospital.
I was lucky to be in the intensive care unit for only a few days.
The doctors told me that I would likely be dead in a day or two.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had my first saltwater bite.
I woke up the next morning to find that the saltwater had been removed from my mouth and onto my chest.
I felt like I had just been thrown into a bathtub.
It was an uncomfortable feeling to have the water in my mouth all the time.
I also felt like the pain was spreading.
The feeling of being in pain has not been alleviated, but for the most part, it has gone away.
I had to relearn to breathe.
I needed to relearning to eat.
I found myself going through the motions of everyday life, like washing my hands or washing my clothes, but now, it’s all gone.
I can no longer even do laundry.
I find that I no longer feel the need to shower, as the only shower I use is at night.
I started to lose weight after the incident with the salt water.
It is now only a little heavier than I did before.
I now look much more like a normal human being.
I no long feel as if I am in a state of being sick.
I feel like I am more of a healthy person now.
I still feel the pain from when I was bitten, but after a few months, the pain has disappeared.
I live in a small, isolated community that is just over a mile away from the beach where I was attacked.
I don’t go anywhere near the water, even to go for a swim.
I don’t know if I can recover from the ordeal, but since I have never had a salt water bite before, I don and am not worried.
I do have a sore throat, and a mild case of pneumonia.
I believe the cold has left me with more than just a cold sore.
I’ve been told that it can cause a condition called hypothermia, which causes your body to stop functioning.
I went to the hospital to get my heart rate monitored, but my doctor told me the temperature would drop to zero by the time I get home.
I plan on staying home to rest until I get some more cold medicine.
The only way I know how to get rid of the cold is to eat, and to not be around the water too much.
I have no idea how long this will last, but, until I can get the cold medicine, I’ll continue to live with the pain.
I hope this helps someone out there.
