How are you feeling today? Have you had some water? Are you taking your meds? Are you eating and getting sleep?

I kept my appointment at the spa yesterday. When the massage therapist asked what she should focus on, I cried. She knew and understood. Almost every woman I came across looked like they were forcing themselves to smile. Some had clearly been crying too.

The only person who looked genuinely happy and had a spring in his step was the old white man in front of me at the pharmacy. I took two naps. I went to bed at 8pm with an ice pack on my head because I had a headache.
