Author’s note: I wrote this story in one sitting (standing, actually) between two visits to the ER, when my life was at serious risk. It appears in its current form, as this is exactly how I wrote it - warts and all - whilst under extreme physical and mental strain. It has won several competitions and been published numerous times. Your feedback is appreciated.
