I would also add packing a suitcase

This is the most resonating passage I've read in What Her Body Thought so far:

Paradoxically-but anyone who has been seriously ill can tell you this-whatever ghosts inhabit your psyche become most fierce when you are physically weak. I am never casual about dressing. But when I am exhausted, the simple act of getting dressed, burdened as it is with self-doubt and vanity, suddenly becomes overwhelming.
