So, usually my kid sis will make a light breakfast for me the night before so I have something to take with my meds right off.
I’ve been trying to cook for myself more. So I didn’t make a breakfast last night. I was trying to stay focused and while I cooked something before I took my meds this morning. The voices were amping up.
I was sure I was hearing my name shouted out again and again. “James please come outside” over and over. I was ignoring it. I wasn’t going to let my head circus get to me. I was going to use my strength and ignore my head circus.
Then the phone rang and it was the voice on the answering machine… “James… Please come outside… Please come outside”
I was getting freaked out. Very freaked out… until there was a knocking on my back patio door and I could see it was my neighbor. I opened the door, and I could still hear the voice… “James… Please come outside”
My neighbor told me that my kid sister is lightly pinned under the tire of my car by her skirt. She was changing a tire on my car and it slipped of a jack a little and she can’t get her skirt free or get out of her skirt. So she’s been out there all this time screaming at me to come outside. I’m so used to ignoring my internal voices, I’m starting to ignore the external ones now too…
I did ask why didn’t she yell help? She didn’t want to scream help because she wasn’t hurt and she didn’t want to freak me out… That was when I found this to be funny.
