Too much reality was depressing. I guess I just wanted to live in my own fantasy world

March 28, 1964, Saturday, Sad Day. Sick

Well I’m sick again. Can hardly believe it.

I’m so depressed. I feel like there’s nothing to live for. As soon as I’m well I’m sick again. We got some terrible news from Chicago. My dad’s cousin Dick Williams called, his little six year old girl, Laura, was killed by a car. She died last night at 12:00. Dad’s cousin Al and his wife Jean left for Chicago today. The funeral in Monday. That’s the saddest thing that could ever happen, especially the day before Easter. John called, he wanted me to go to Surf Films with him, but I told him I was sick. Than my cousin Big John called, (he was really sad about Laura.) He wanted me to get a date for his friend and go out, but I couldn’t.

March 29, 1964. Easter Sunday.

Thought I might feel better today but I didn’t. Easter was nothing to me this year. Of course I don’t know why it should make any difference. This is the third year I’ve been sick. Didn’t go to Church. Washed my hair for school, but got real sick. Granddaddy ate over. Billee and Preston got two rabbits for Easter. I give them about a week to live around here. Daddy called Unk-Ile and told him about Laura. He was real sad. I got on the phone and told him I had the letter for him with the survey from my friends, about Maybelline Liquid Eyeliner. I told him I was sick, but would mail it. I haven’t thought about Howard for a long time, in fact I don’t think about anyone.
