Postcards From a Stranger by Imogen Clark
“I can’t do this on my own anymore!”
I shout it down the phone. I don’t mean to shout. It’s just how my voice comes out. “I need some help,” I say more quietly.
I put my hand over the mouthpiece to muffle my voice.
“Dad” I plead. “Stop making that racket.”
Dad looks at me, his eyes mildly curious, but he does not stop. The crack of metal spoon on wooden table continues to pummel my delicate nerve endings. I remember the advice that I got from the specialist-care team and take another deep breath. “Please”! I add with the best smile I can muster.
