Uncontrollable Meltdown

Order was essential.

Silvia hated change and was meticulous about maintaining order. The lockdowns had thrown her for a loop!
No schedules… no consistency… and constant unease had affected her both mentally and physically. Nothing appeared ‘normal’. She felt her heart taking extra beats and started dropping everything she touched. Silvia was falling apart.

Now, the political disagreements in Congress had become too much for her to take!

“To Hell with changes! Leave it alone!” she wailed at the TV. Every part of her needed mundane, mindless, ‘normalcy’ to return.

She finally fell asleep in the fetal position waking just in time to make it to her therapist appointment. That was her only constant these days. As she settled into her usual chair in the safety of ‘her’ waiting room the receptionist announced that her doctor had taken a sudden leave of absence.

As she ran from the room wailing, the hallway floor began to move on its own and she collapsed.

Silvia was immediately rolled to the 9th floor Psych ward.
Lying in the bed next to her, she recognized her therapist.
