Overview

Description

Asako, a SLE patient, suffers from not only the disease’s symptoms but also moon face, a common side effect of medication. Her face was noticeably puffy at the beginning of treatment, and though her face is no longer puffy thanks to decreased dose, she still hides her face with hair, avoids group photos, gets startled at a mention of puffy face and never watches a full moon without remembering her round face. Alone in her suffering, she adjusts dose of medication by herself, making her condition unstable. One day she finally confides in a nurse, who informs the doctor that the fear of moon face causes as much trouble to Asako as the symptoms. Thanking Asako for disclosing her real feelings, the doctor promises to control the treatment with consideration to her wishes. With this newly found hope for future, Asako pushes up her side hair and smiles.
