:( Much sympathy for an awful time.

Regarding greetings, I would assume the other person doesn't actually care about me in detail, but I can avoid burdening them with what my life is actually like, I'd throw in some non-information-response like "great, went to a play" or "don't ask! you wouldn't believe how many ways a bike can go wrong in two days". Obviously, if you just want to say "go away", "fine thanks" is the correct response, and the best way of shutting down people who ask how you are when you're awful. But otherwise, I don't think etiquette demands a zero content reply.
