Sundays

Its Sunday afternoon, its cooler than expected. I have a pre-op assessment tomorrow. I feel lonely. Something that strikes me as odd though is that I dont want to be around people. In fact having to deal with people tomorrow concerns me. I know I’ll be fine, and that work in the morning will be…
