In the hours that followed she was greeted by the now almost daily episodes of piercing anxiety, shame, and hopelessness…
…all while being consumed by venomous guilt that she was letting everybody around her down.
And while she often caught her husband looking at other women the same way he used to look at her,
She still tried her best to get her body back by trying every diet under the sun
and exercising for hours-on-end each and every day.
And as Blackness slowly soaked her vision while pain transitioned to numbness…
With her husband standing over her screaming for her to say something… ANYTHING……she closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and accepted her fate.
