I almost couldn’t believe February has 29 days it was a leap year.

I fear losing my mother and I keep it to myself. I feel like this dark cloud is hanging over my head over. I don’t go out at night. I fear certain things but I used to take long walks but now I just plan on doing my 5K for NAMI Mercer in May of this year 2020. My mom’s birthday and Mother’s day are in May 2020. I called my mom from the short term facility I was in. I need to stay in my room at night.
