Most folks wake up peacefully
She abruptly wakes up shaking and nauseated
Sometimes dry heaving
Reaching for that magical pill to calm everything down
Will it work this morning?
She sits up in her bed waiting for the nerves to settle down
Careful not to fall back asleep
One hour goes by
The body settles down
Surviving another morning
She struggles until the next dosage
