Some days feel like they’re falling apart between your fingers like gluten free bread.
Some days it’s hard to sort out if the pain you are feeling is from the grief bubbling back up a year later or the fresh accusations from people you love. And then your computer crashes. And you fail to prepare for an exam. And you realize that you haven’t done laundry every day and now there are 18 loads waiting for you.

You are nine and mad and sad and want to punch everyone all at once. And your stupid phone is broken.
