My Hands Felt Just Like Two balloons
Hi all, in another thread recently that got a little sidetracked, a line from Comfortably Numb was brought up that brought back an odd old memory of mine which I shared. In a P.M. the person who had mentioned the line in the song suggested that it may be worthy of a thread if others here have had a similar experience.
The line which I'm sure many of us know well is: "When I was a child I had a fever, and my hands felt just like two balloons".
I am curious, so here goes...
When I was about 6 years old, I remember crying to my mom, maybe more then once, that my body felt like it was blowing up like a balloon, hands, arms, legs, everything, and that if it didn't stop it felt like I was going to pop. Of course there was nothing she knew to do except comfort me until it went away.
Well, for many many years after I from time to time wondered just what in the hell that was all about as a little boy because it was a very odd memory. A very uncomfortable memory. Then one day somewhat recently the thought just popped into my head of the possibility that what had occured was that sometimes it may be difficult for one's full and complete soul to squeeze into a tiny little human body.
So, has this happened to anyone else?
