A year ago yesterday my innards fell out.
A year ago today, a doctor told me that I needed to have surgery that had me unemployed for 9 months and from which I am still recovering.
Then…a year ago tomorrow my father died.
My uterus is gone, as are my core muscles, so now my back hurts.
I spent today in an MRI machine, re-traumatized by being in the hospital where my son’s accident played out 2 1/2 years ago.
My dad is still dead.
I am unemployed now/again/still, along with millions of others, because there is a global pandemic.
THERE’S A FUCKING GLOBAL PANDEMIC.
The planet is blowing up.
We’re seeing a resurgence of lynchings.
And our president is an asshat.
Good thing for margaritas, the desert, and being madly in love.
