Imagine living with a roommate who brings over a 'friend with benefits' that not only disrespects your belongings but also triggers your PTSD-induced panic attacks. That's the reality for our protagonist, who's been in therapy for 10 years and relies on her task-trained dog to help her cope. After several incidents involving her roommate's casual fling, all she asks for is a 20-minute heads up before he comes over. But is that too much to ask? Let's dive into this emotional rollercoaster of a story. 😰
