Okay, Fio will admit it. She recently had a total breakdown. Everything had been piling up--the writing, the house, family stuff--plus, several things Fio had been anticipating fell through. Fio's reaction was to take a long look at her life and feel like a failure, and she didn't see much future either. Nevertheless, she tried to be strong, to keep moving forward. Then came the last straw.
And she blew. For several hours.
The next day, she woke up totally drained. That afternoon, she started coming back to herself, and that evening, she was back to normal--whatever that is.
Until next time.
