I stopped eating, really, about a week ago. 

I’m short on everything. I just make food for the kids. 

I found a protein bar in the borrowed car two days ago and put it in my purse in case I get too sick to hold it in. Today I gave it to a transient in the park who was counting his fingers over and over again out loud. 

I asked for a draw at work which covered a tank of gas, one new tee shirt per kid for the first day of school, and one pair of shoes for the littlest since his toes wore all the way through his close toed sandals.

Came back to the 5th wheel after work, and the well is dry. No showers again. 

I’m really tired.
