I’ve been trying to write through the pain, but failing. I gave up caffeine this week. It took until Wednesday for the migraine to hit. Yesterday was worse. Today, so far, has been a continuation of yesterday.

Still, I tried. I sat here willing myself to connect with the smallest fragment of anything. If not my brain, then maybe my fingers would do it on their own.

This is my surrender. My eyes want to close. My body wants to lie down in the dark. I’ve been feeling like a failure at life, and this isn’t helping. Another defeat.

Some days you lose the fight.
