#ICBYShortStory- Sedatives

November 25, 2018

FREE WRITING

With Daisy, my four-year-old daughter at home throwing temper tantrums, Jhonas, my husband missing and Dylan, my eighteen year old taking full day shifts, I felt like no level of aspirins would defuse my never ending migraines.

It would be impossible to cope with all this stress if it weren't for my sedatives.
Ohh... how I love them!

Today's delivery of sedatives were taking an especially long time to come. When it came I nearly fainted with relief. Opening my package I instantly indulged in the contents without a second of apprehension.

Why is everything getting so hazy? What the devil is all that noise? I have to stop it!
  

                                                                *******
                                                         !Breaking news!
Mother kills four year old daughter under the influence of Methamphetamine. She has been consuming them for over four months, under the impression that they were sedatives.
                                                               ********
I don't know why I'm behind bars...
Ma'am you have a visitor says a rough voice interrupting my train of thoughts. After a few minutes Dylan walks in, glowering at me, "I can't believe you", he says.
Then it all goes black.
                                                                 ********
Sorry it's a bit above the word limit :P
