Oh and I went to the doctors today and I was told...
Doctor- Sabrina, is there anything you greatly miss, or feel that you are anxious about?
Me: I miss many things.
Doctor: Name them.
Me: I miss my country. I miss my home. I miss my family. I miss Morocco. I miss being happy. I used to be able to walk to the mosque with my hijab on and not be called a terrorist, sand ni****, cameljockey. Now, in my neighborhood, thats all I hear being whispered behind my back.
Doctor: You're Muslim and Moroccan!?
Me: Yes, how could you not know? I talk about it all the time. Why, does that bother you?
Doctor: -she literally started crying-
Me: Um...are you okay?
Doctor: I know how you feel habiba (I was shocked because I had no idea she was even Arab...let alone Moroccan) You feel like you don't belong here at all and you want to be home. No one knows what its like and everyone judges you for stupid reasons.
