I did it. I closed my eyes. I thought I could keep them close and either fall asleep or open them after a minute. So I sat on my chair, behind my screen, in my living room. I always feel safe in my home, all the doors are locked and I have two watch cats. I have neighbors living on both sides and right above me. The only noise I hear is the humming of my PC and the constant whistle in my ears, that noise I hear day and night.
I started counting, one, two three….till 59, then 60 and that was it: enough.
Not much happened. I thought I could fall asleep, but I was sitting up straight so I couldn’t fall. I had no fear as I’m never afraid in my safe house, my safe place, my haven.
