Moving to this place - a tiny crescent way back from the road - was supposed to help me not hear the traffic.

@AnitaFWas

It normally works, but with that sharp turn on Morrow, someone screeches their tires at least once a day, meaning I panic at least once a day.

Later that day

Oh... ah. The kids across the street appear to actually be locked outside of their house. From yelling, seems older one is to blame.

Anita W
@AnitaFWas

Hm. Noticing their house is built in mirror image to my own. Wonder if they know you can break in through the downstairs bathroom window?

Anita W
@AnitaFWas

Perhaps I go over and help?

The next day

With all the goings-on around the neighborhood, I didn’t even register the traffic this afternoon. Didn’t need the breathing or relaxation exercises.

Anita W
@AnitaFWas

I've finally found a distraction - the neighborhood itself - and I'm going to hold onto it for dear life.

Later that week

Mrs E wanted me to give her a lift. Just to the garage, to pick up her own car. 5 minutes away, no trouble at all.

Anita W
@AnitaFWas

How can I explain that I can’t drive? That the last time I tried my hands were shaking so badly I couldn’t get the keys in the ignition?

Then
Anita W
@AnitaFWas

That was. Well. That was bad. Not good.

Anita W
@AnitaFWas

Chasing after the dog. I wasn’t any closer than 20 feet, buut a truck drove past, and that was it. Next thing I was curled up on the grass.

Anita W
@AnitaFWas

I swear I could feel the glass again, smell the smoke and the blood again, hear it all, everything.
