Rose in one of night shifts at home during her come down.
Pause for a breath
I don't know, maybe I'm just tired. But, I can't stop. I have to work on my presentation and Lola's wedding. I have so much to do. I just have to do it. I sat back and sighed. I still have work to do. I looked at the clock. Damn, midnight already! I looked around me. Davis and Keisha are already asleep by now. I probably should do the same thing. No! I still have work to do! I looked over at my notes. I squinted hard as I read over my words. What did I write? I can't even read my own handwriting! I kept trying to read what had been during over the past few days.
After ten minutes, I gave up and started screaming in silence. I just wrote chicken-scratch for the past five days. I'm going to have to do this whole thing over again. I can do this right now. I turned back to the page that I started on after I started on the pills.
Another ten minutes later, I felt like screaming again. I can't even remember what I wrote down! I sat back and sighed. I really need some sleep. I slowly shut my eyes. Mmm, sleep is good...
I quickly shook my head. No! I can't go to sleep now! I have work to do! I looked at my notes and started from scratch. Damn it, I'm confusing myself again. I sighed and blew up my bangs. It's time to take my pills. I reached into my purse and pulled out the bottle. I twisted it open and shook out my meds. Only two left. I need to refill my perspiration tomorrow. Oh well, this will just have to do for now. I popped the pills in my mouth. My whole body shot awoke once again. I can do this!
So back to work I go.
It's Been This Way Since Christmas Day
