There are difficult days, of course. Everyone has those, yes? When we were children, we would eventually learn how to self-soothe. I'm not sure why it's become more tricky now that we are older. Certain triggers like someone leaving or threatening to leave would result in a number of stormy days—seeking shelter under blankets, shutting the drapes, living in constant darkness—believing we're safe from harm that way. Today's a Tuesday, I'm coming out of a 3-day fog. I hail a cab and plan to buy junk food, lots of junk food. I miss my bed already.
