How to Exist When You Forget Your Medication
Would you like a hug?
I was on Ficly under a different name but it's been too long for me to remember what that was...
Forgot my meds two days in a row now... or was it three? Everything is starting to go sideways, like reality is slipping around on a greasy pan. I can't remember having an episode like this, and it's all moving around so much I'm starting to feel dizzy.
I hear a distant voice in my head, a whispered word I can't quite hear, it's like a memory of a story someone told me once.
My pills are on the table, I reach for them and my hand seems to pass right through the bottle. What are these for anyway? I try to read the bottle but the symbols don't seem like English, they dance around the label taunting me. I think I need to take these pills, I think it's important, but what are they?
I'm holding the bottle now,I don't know how and I can't seem to figure out how that happened. a word surfaces. Stop. the word is clear and echoes through my mind like a broken record. The bottle...I look at it through a winding haze as it fades in and out of reality, I try to hold on, but my hand disappears.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

Welcome back! I love the literal take on the word exist in this. It leaves you questioning the entire experience.

Very relatable. There is something interesting going on at the end with the stops but even after three days I can't quite pinpoint what it is. I like it though. I'd like to see more stories by you to get a sense of your style.
