Your breathing intensifies and becomes ragged. You crawl into a ball, crying. Rocking yourself back and forth. Worried you were not coming back, your comrades went looking for you. They find you here, with puffed red eyes, sitting in your own urine and feces... They get you back to camp without a word...
