“Of all the senses, sight must be the most delightful.” ~ Helen Keller

Elanor woke up at 7 a.m., and started to get ready for work like any other morning. And, like most mornings, she isn’t surprised to smell weed coming from the neighbor’s apartment. Things started getting weird as she was showering. All of a sudden – she couldn’t breathe! She starts to panic, not surprisingly, and everything gets worse… She knows that she has to get help before she suffocates inside her own body – but she is lightheaded and could lose consciousness before she can find help. Elanor musters up everything she has in her and makes her way to the window before she passes out.
As Elenor’s mom recalls the details, we find out exactly what happened inside the apartment, and the events that led to her daughters condition.

This is a very claustrophobic story, and I had a hard time making it through to the end without having to go outside for some air!
