Restless in instability. The discovery of a stranger-roommate being mentally ill and suicidal and the recourse associated with this brings a world that is unpredictable. The feeling of anxiety and fear of what could be found on the other side of the door never leaves. At any given moment something could happen, but there is still that little piece of hope that everything will be okay. Emotions and thoughts run wild and uncontrollably. Is it safe to stay? Should I stay? How can I help? Will I push them away? This home does not feel like home.
