I didn’t want to write this post, it doesn’t “fit my profile” i thought. Plus it’s something that is going to pass soon, i won’t write about this. Yesterday i bought my mom a scarf, to wear when her hair falls. Since i bought the scarf, i might as well write the damn post.
Take a moment and think. Your phone rings, at the end of the line is a loved one. My mother.
“Hey sweetie, my test results are out. Looks like i have a breast tumor and the doctor insists we took it out right away.”
The rest of the phone call can be guessed. “Everything is going to be fine” etc. Yes, you lose ground under your feet. It’s just cancer.
Why would i have chills over a word i use or hear so often? And by the way why would this disease be called this way??? Why not use a medical hi-tech term? Like lymphic-extra-weird-blood-disease or something??? (yes, i am good at making out new words! ) Nope, they had to go and screw that word for me!
And then more hate words come, like chemotherapy. At least this is not an everyday word, so i shouldn’t be mad at it…. Therefore i am going to give this one a break.
And this is the time you actually appreciate health, now you get to see the beauty of a nice cold, awesome!
So if you are like me, worrying about some extra pounds or about your job not being rewarding, take a moment and think of that phone call. And smile please, cause everything is going to be just fine!
P.S.1 – Mom did her surgery, thank God that stupid tumor is out and now it’s chemo time. Doctors say she is going to be just fine when all of this is over!
P.S.2 – No pictures this time. I don’t like touching disease posts with photos of people walking on a beach holding hands. Sorry for being grumpy.
P.S.3 – I wanted to write a post about Google (again!). Sorry Google dear, next time.
P.S.4 – I can go on with these P.S.s for long!
