So Much Potential

My boyfriend says I'm too high maintenance; his exact words: I can't deal with this anymore. My shrink says I'm too mad; her exact words: Cognitive behavioural therapy isn't always successful. My best friend says she needs a break from me; her exact words: Maybe you should have some time away. She puts an upward inflection on the end of the sentence, but it isn't a question. My mum says I can stay in Gran's house if I like; her exact words: Just don't sleep in her bed, Sarah. That's where she died.
