I’ve lost my patience before and gotten it back. I sat in the park. It was spring and there were families there. I didn’t want to stare so I read or wrote. I don’t want to yell at my mom again. I lose patience with her because she won’t buy a hearing aid saying they cost too much. So I have to repeat things I say to her on the phone. Have you ever felt an almost total loss of patience, I mean everyday?
