"Everything is so wrong without Bill."
"I know."
"I miss him so much."
"I know."
"He used to call me 'baby.' I never in a million years thought I'd be a woman who'd like that, but I did ... with him."
"Sure you do."
"I miss his hands. ... Miss his hands, the way they would just -- he would put them on the small of my back ... and just lead me into a room. It made me feel so safe. I miss all that."

If you're like me you are really angry about one US Supreme Court decision last week. But guess what? There's more. Dobbs v. Jackson is likely the worst decision that this court will reach but this one is not far behind. Vox talks about how bad this is for LGBTQetc. people but I've got people in my life who are only alive because of dialysis. Oh there are so many reasons to be mad at this court. [Vox]
