Wish It Was A Dream

Your mother says she thinks it's just the
after-effects of a traumatic relationship -
your first.

She says you're a very high-functioning girl
on your way to graduate school,
but you're so tired now.

You can feel something on your head
that's draining your soul.

It's nothing the lab work or the
head CT can detect,
and you are terrorized by this
sudden onset...

I feel so weird...

Yes. I can see that,
but I'm a little distracted
trying to think of a way
to ask your mother whether
there is a family history
of schizophrenia
without breaking her heart,
or mine.
