abuse

On an emotional rollercoaster with sleep deprivation.

There is no reciprocity. Men love women, women love children, children love hamsters. -- Alice Thomas Ellis

Such is the quote that appeared on Theresa's screen this morning after talking just last night about how Anne is getting along better than Cam after their separation (even though he was the one to call it off).

I'm sure there's still a role for men beyond the sperm donor stage, but there's an element of truth in that quote that makes it particularly cruel. What is love without reciprocity?

I think, though, that my emotional low is largely due to being so tired that I can't take it anymore. I think I shall now go to bed before I develop homicidal tendencies...
