“I cannot go on like this”

We arrive home on the last gorgeous afternoon of February. Kelsey and I walk the dog, get the mail, and enjoy the weather for a few minutes.

When we finished homework, Kelsey hid between pillows and pouted. She was sulking in a way I have not seen in a while. Immediately, alarms flash and trigger.

“What is it Kels?” I ask shaking.

“Mom, I just cannot go on like this.”

“Like what?”

“I cannot go on with a daily needle, Mom. How long is this supposed to go on? I just want it to stop!”

With that, tears streamed down her face and mine.

Though she inherited my dramatic gene, this one was honest and raw.

I was at a loss.

I am at a loss.
