    Exhausting

    The nights she cries and it comes through the walls are the worst. I can hear her sobs all night as I lay in bed. It's a sound of desperation and makes me want to cry with her. I used to check on her every once in awhile, just to make sure she was ok. I would stand by the door...

    Very Suddenly

    It all started on what was supposed to be a relatively happy Friday. I was taking the last final of my college career (history), and I thought I heard my phone vibrate several times. Since I was in the middle of an exam, I obviously couldn't answer my phone. As soon as I finished...

    My mom has kidney disease.

    She was diagnosed with it when I was eleven (sixteen now) and after she had my little sister. I'm one of five kids now and although everything is okay with her right now I still worry a lot. Like if she's gone for too long I worry she's in the hospital. I know she's not going to...
