One, two, three, four, I count the seconds-pass mentally as I jab the piece of paper into the slot with my pen. This is my psychiatrist’s idea to help rid me of my anxiety.

It’s not like the world will fall on top of you. Panicked, I glance at the ceiling before sighing and grabbing a piece of paper. Another one for the jar.
