On the last day of my three-day weekend. I’ve spent it with Grams. My anxiety is at an all time high. I waver between being happy and moping, though the last 24 hours have been more of the latter. I move as though I were underwater. I’ve no energy, no desire to do a damn thing. Continue reading
The two weeks that followed the message I sent Alex were difficult to say the least. I spent my days alternating between hopeful and feeling hopeless. He did eventually reply to my text, adeptly glossing over the depth of my words.
We saw each other the week after Spring Break. It was a short amount of time, as he was heading to his sister’s birthday party afterward.

Thankfully Alex and I have continued seeing each other after our wee fall out. Saw him this past Monday. He came by after my Intro to Surgery Exam. I raced home soon as I finished filling in the bubbles on my answer sheet… Continue reading
Alex did come by my place last week. When I received his text letting me know he’d arrived, my breath caught in my chest. I couldn’t believe he’d actually shown up. I rushed downstairs to let him in the building. We met at the door but I didn’t know how to greet him… Continue reading
