THINGS THAT ARE SO MUCH WORSE THAN I EVER IMAGINED

  1. Strangers on the Internet threatening your family and making your mother so sad
  2. Menstruating
  3. Watching someone you love struggle with a degenerative disease
  4. the co-op board
  5. Seeing your father cry
  6. chewing tobacco
  7. Colonoscopy
    specially the liquid they have you drink first. But you have to do it if you're over forty five OR a broken woman
  8. telling a childhood friend what you REALLY think of them
