35, Male, Diagnosed With Thyroid Cancer A Few Weeks Ago, That’s What My Chart Says
For 35 years I thought you were an excuse people used when they couldn’t loose weight. For 35 years I was oblivious to your influence in my life. For 35 years you silently did your thing, while I did mine. It wasn’t until I found out you were trying to kill me did I begin to appreciate what you’re all about. But now it’s too late. Now the doctors have taken you away. But you’re still not gone. No, you’re in my lymph nodes and who knows where else. Now I’m tired or wired with panic attacks and bipolar mood swings visiting me like hiccups.
What will the next 35 years look like without you? Or will your leftover cells take what exhausted life is left in my bones? For 35 years I thought you were an excuse people used when they couldn’t loose weight. My bad.
