I am Obese

After “cleaning” herself up, Susan didn’t feel any better. She walked into her office. The warm alpaca hand knitted afghan caught her eye. The blanket tossed in the over stuffed chair was calling out to her. “Why not.”

Susan curled herself into the chair then wrapped herself tight with the warmth of the fiber. She sat this way for some time. “Fine I’ll journal about this.” Susan said out loud to no one. The blanket came along with her.

Sitting in front of the laptop she read what was typed in the journal document, yesterday. Nothing. Zip. The day didn’t seem to exist. “So much for writing in the journal every day. Doctors and therapist are very helpful. This stupid heart condition isn’t going to cause death. Ralph seems to think so.” Where the thoughts in her head.

“Okay you win. Let’s journal.” Susan said with a raised voice.

“There done. Feel better already. Not.”

“THIS SUCKS!” Susan yelled.

Ralph heard Susan talking out loud. The anger in her voice he chose to give her space. Another text message was sent. “Now what?” Whispered Ralph as he descended the stairs.
