I've pulled the trigger: I'm officially automobile-free. In the end, it won't really affect my life all that much. By the way, that's not the sun on a very cloudy day; it's the full moon at night.

I guess this is my new normal: feeling terrible all of the time. It's not how I would choose to live—if you can even call this living—but my body is giving me no choice.
