Oh Doctor, Doctor: 3 Things About Hospitals That Keep Me Burnin, Burnin

The many doctor visits a cancer patient must endure
Oh doctor, doctor, can’t you see I’m burnin, burnin

Before breast cancer, I had been to the hospital of total of THREE times—a sprained ankle and bad allergic reaction (both times in highschool) and the third time was when I was born.

It’s crazy how in an instant, my so-called la-la life can change so drastically, dramatically, permanently. Everyone says not to think about the why…but I can’t help it, why?!? Not why me, just WHY.

There are moments where I almost forget. Nothing’s wrong with me, I’m normal! Call it denial, call it whatever you want, I don’t care. I want to relish and hang on to these beautiful la-la moments I can still have.

And then there are moments where I literally have to catch my breath thinking about it.

Tick tock tick tock. My la-la life is running out of time.
