I Couldn't Breathe.....

Hey guys! 
Last night, I shot up from bed at 4:40 am was not able to breathe. 
As you know, from my previous blog posts, I have been sick for the past week with post nasal drip. I have been feeling a lot better through, until last night.
I went to bed feeling fine, with my head super propped up with many pillows.  I took Nyquil and turned my humidifier on and it was all good. At 4:40am I woke up coughing and gasping for air. I ran to the bathroom as I woke up my entire family and continued to cough and grasp for air. I couldn't breathe and I have never been so scared in my entire life. My nose was stuffed up so I couldn't breathe through my nose and I was coughing up whatever nasty mucus that was down my throat so I couldn't breathe from my mouth either. I was making a wheezing sound, as I gasped for air. It didn't take my parents very long to wake up and come running to me. They didn't understand what had happened but they knew I couldn't breathe. After about 5 minutes, I was fine, I was able to blow my nose and stop coughing. But I have honestly never been that scared before. I honestly thought my dad was going to have to call an ambulance. 
My friends know that I am very dramatic but when I'm saying I couldn't breathe, I actually couldn't breathe. 
After I caught my breathe, I tried to go back to bed. I propped my head up even more and continued to breathe through my nose every 5 minutes, to make sure that I could breathe.

I have thankfully always been a very healthy kid and this was the first health scare that I've really had  that really shook me. Although, I was fine after 5 minutes, it was the scariest 5 minutes of my life. Moral of the story; don't take your health for granted.

Here is the quick and easy outfit I put together, after only getting 4 hours of sleep:
