Every time she walks down the street, people starts gawking. What is she doing? They wonder. Why is she hitting her head?
The things is, she can’t help it. Terrifying scenarios pop into her mind with everything she sees. Like this bicycle parked by the fire hydrant, she sees the bicycle in reality but in her mind, the ground suddenly tilts and the bicycle rolls down the hill into her. She lets out a frightful gasp and slaps the top of her head, snapping herself back to reality. “Don’t think that.” She scolds herself. “You know better.”
You see why now?
