She walks through the door and immediately I scan her over.
-Frumpy clothes
-Limp on one side
-Wet noodle handshake

She opens her mouth to talk.
-Nervous laughter

During the intake I don’t just write down her complaints.
-Dark circles under her eyes
-Remnants of a cold sore
-Fidgets with her feet
-Tells me too many things that she suffers from
-Tries to get sympathy from me

While placing the needles, I palpate for location.
-Painful around the heart
-Painful on several points on the inside leg
-Taut in the mid-back
-Oily around the face

So what’s the difference between this and fighting?
