Little Notes In Library Books XIV

Sometimes I feel like there's a hand in my stomach squeezing and twisting all the way up to my throat
The cold claws dig deep into my scalp releasing a stinging venom that trickles down my eyes and cheeks
Steel rods punch into my sternum with a force that could knock down the most muscular body
A large burning ball in my throat nearly chokes me to death and I swallow hard to shift it
That's when the despair, distress, alarm, fear, helplessness kicks in
That's when I feel I've lost all control
When I know I can't keep everyone safe
When my mind races with exaggerated scenarios and shows me scenes I don't want to think about
Oh I'm sorry, do I seem a little snappy?
It's ok, don't you worry about a thing; I'm fine… really

Dear Dad,
Thanks so much for passing on the family nose to me. At least if we break a coat hook I can just stand at the door with a “hang here” sign. Oh and please tell mum that saying I have “a Streisand nose” isn’t helping! 
Love,

The two eyes that get upstaged by it
