3,560 Days

3,560 days. Nine years, eight months, and twenty-eight days. That’s how long I had with my mother.

What If?

I overthink things far too much and am often paranoid. I analyze conversations, trying to find some deeper meaning behind words when there is none. I assume that if someone doesn't reply immedeately, I've said something wrong or they simply hate me now, and then I hate myself for thinking that because I know it’s not true and there's no logical basis behind it.
