Are you okay?

Does your jaw ache? 

Do your eyes feel heavy?

Lethargic mind?

Overwhelming dysphoria?

Do your bones feel weak? 

Ready to snap in two?

Is your stomach in knots?

Your throat - how is it? 

Like you've been dry swallowing too many too big pills? 

Will you tell me if your chest caves in?

How bad does your head hurt? 

On a scale from one to ten? 

Like a brick has hit it? 

What was it you said about your back? 

Did you say your spine is peeling back your skin? 

What's that rash? 

Why have your hands turned blue? 

Are your fingers okay? 

You're not ripping apart your nail beds again - are you? 

Your neck, what's happening? 

Did you say it’s bending into impossible shapes?

I'm sorry, what was that? 

Your feet are bleeding? 

Are you sure your hips should be so bruised? 

Where are your teeth? 

Have you any left? 

Is that your heart I hear pounding? 

From way over here?

Who sliced out your tongue? 

Who ripped off your ears? 

What do you mean? 

Are you saying you did this to yourself?
