When friends are faster than therapy

Purple Dragonfly by Susan Kubes

BFF: Are you awake?

Me: What are *you* doing up so late?

BFF: Are you okay?

Me: Yeah... why?

BFF: Well, I just read that and you're so angry. You usually don't get so angry.

Me: It made me really angry.

BFF: No, I mean... It's not like they haven't done worse things. Are you okay?

Me: Yeah.

BFF: So what got you so angry?

Me: The fecking proposed legislation that tries to make women not able to have control over their bodies?! I mean, it is what it is.

BFF: Oh, so it's the not having control over your body thing. That sucks. I totally feel for you.
