Her hair is on fire and exactly where she wants it.
Ribs in place and I can see her breathe.
A walk may take several hours. May have to wait in line. May have to go back several times before the right method is known. May even get pushback from others, family, friends, neighborhood. But you go.
You go because you know what is on the other side of that trip. The promise of the pills, or the shot, or the implant.
You go because you know you will feel a little lighter, a little more at ease. You go because the trip means you no longer have to worry. It means you can stay. It means you can work. You can grown. She can grow. It means you can concentrate.
