Silence. The whirl of the fan is my only distraction. Ting,Ting, Ting.
My chest tightens. My heart beats faster and faster. My breathing is ragged. Ting, Ting, Ting…
I lie there and try to count. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… Ting, Ting, Ting. I get dizzy. What if I don’t have time?? Did I spend too much money? Did I eat too much? Did the baby get enough food? When will she wake? Are the clothes clean? Did I forget something?
Ting, ting, ting. Gulping down air I try to clear my mind. 1, 2, 3, 4..
Ting, ting, ting..
