    It's too hot.

    I feel like I'm blurring and shifting. There's something inside me that's trying to break free. I felt so angry and trapped earlier, so I went for a walk to cool off, and I started dissociating but I made it back to the house, and I'm now too warm and feeling angry again. It's making me feel...

    Swollen feet

    Hmmm... never had this before. My feet have started swelling and seem to be getting worse. I know that heat can cause a problem, but it's been hot before and I've not had swollen feet before. Do you think I should see my doctor?
