Quicksand

Sureal dream like feeling,  I am trying to run but not getting anywhere , kind of like the treadmill of life.
It's like a parallel world has opened up and I am on the outside looking in, shouting at myself to move forward, but it is just a distant echo  
Anxiety is creeping again, my demons are no longer my friends, I have to admit I am scared, which puts a dent in my pride, I can't even run so where do I hide, I still need to go to work but I am hurting inside,
I can't sleep at night because it is plaguing my mind, with blood shot eyes, I look at the time, as it counts down I slide ever more into QUICKSAND.....

I had cancer 5 years ago and then went into remission and finally got the all clear early last year.
Then a few days ago I found out it has returned.
I took the advice of 2 good friends on here who suggested writing my feelings down.
This is not how I feel constantly, but how I felt while writing this..
So I am not a complete emotional mess, just in fits and starts 👊 I just hope it makes sense 🙏
