I received a disturbing, difficult medical diagnosis Friday evening. I’ve felt a myriad of emotions since hearing the words. I’m not dying and it’s not the end of the world, but you wouldn’t be human if it didn’t affect you.
One of my best friends told me “Look at it this way; Your body needs you to take care of you. You’ve done so much for others for SO LONG and you’ve been through SO MUCH. This is a reminder to slow down and put yourself first.” I can’t argue with her logic. But yeah, I’m upset. I’ve worked hard NOT to hear this specific diagnosis, even though I suspected it would happen at some point. It turns out that even when you’d like for it to, your intuition DOESN’T lie.
I hope everyone had a less stressful weekend than I did. I’m an OCD basket case. 😦 But this, too, I’ll navigate to the best of my ability.
