Grumbling, you prepare for the day, making sure to dress in a layered outfit suitable for injections and blood draws. You head to work, stopping first for your weekly allergy shots. You sit sullenly in the waiting room, wishing it were a trigger shot instead of boring allergy shots for which you know you will have to fight your insurance yet again to remove the copay your insurance does not require. (It happens every week.)

At lunchtime, do you relax and eat with your colleagues, enjoying the brief time you have in their company or run tedious errands?
