An Awakening Nightmare

An early childhood memory

Pain. Metallic taste. Bright lights overhead.

I am awake. Should I be awake? Where am I? This pain in my throat and that taste? What is that? I cry out. I need to be heard. Are they even listening?



A place to feature your recollections of your earliest memories from childhood. These can range from simple and vague to more vivid memories.
