Dear Ms. Feverfew –
The malaise that settled over me a week or so ago is still here and I can’t seem to shake it. All my normal tricks aren’t working. If I am not exceptionally vigilant, I burst into tears at inopportune times and spend a lot of time weeping. After holding it together for nearly 19 years, I can’t do it any more. I want you back, even more now than when I signed that damn paperwork. And this wanting leaves me absolutely crushed because I know it cannot be so.
Yes, I have learned to live with it most of the time, but sometimes I can’t live with it. This is one of those times.
