Admission--Six Sentences from Rock Crazy

Abandoned, pregnant, and bi-polar, Katie McGowan’s going crazy on that God-forsaken rock, the Moon!

Mommy, don’t kill me!  Don’t kill me!
“I won’t kill you.  I just want the pain to end.  I just wanna kill me!”
Don’t kill me, Mommy!
“Daddy’ll take care of you.  He’ll save you.”
Mommy, don’t kill me.  I’m here, Mommy!  Don’t hurt me!
“Be good for Daddy.  Tell him—Tell him I love him.”

Severely bi-polar, Katie is hallucinating and arguing with her unborn child about committing suicide.


Katie McGowan is bi-polar, and she’s run the gamut of medications.  Everyone is telling her she should go to the Moon and have microchip surgery, but she’s afraid she’ll become an automaton.  In a last-ditch, tough love effort to force her to get the chip, her husband, Scott takes her to the Moon and divorces her when she decks him. Then she discovers she’s pregnant.  She can’t have the surgery or take her meds until after the baby’s born.

Scott is elated when he hears he’s going to be a father and naturally assumes Katie will take him back.  He always intended to take her back as soon she had the surgery.  He has no clue how badly he hurt her, how thoroughly he’s broken her trust—or that he may not get her back at all.
