She also is aware that her husband thinks that the “quality” of their conversations is lacking, and anytime he catches her scrolling through her phone instead of trying to interact with him, he doesn’t like that.
She knows she’s out of touch, and it’s so bad that she’s having problems with sensory issues and different textures.
She’s completely and utterly run down. Her maternity leave is over in two days, but she’s going to have to work eight shifts back to back to make up for all the money they lost with her being out of work for a little more than three months.

“I now feel like I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop. I wasn’t checked out before, but now I feel like I have to be emotionally disconnected to save my heart from feeling the inevitable.”
