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..

I'm linking up with Write on Edges's RemebeRED prompt today.
