The Long Way~

I don’t want to write the book. I get there. I have chapters and then I think, this is regarding the health industry. I may be private, but I don’t know how to be dishonest or withdrawn. I’ve had others tell me I would be good at any writing, not true. I would be a lousy fiction writer. I am as honest in writing as I am in knowing me. The book will be criticized. Last certainly not least, it will shock you.

Then, I think maybe I will reach someone in despair that hasn’t read this blog. Maybe I can bring some awareness to misdiagnoses and negligence in healthcare. And then my natural calmness has myself thinking I should let go.

So I’m conflicted. There are many true stories I haven’t shared regarding the long guinea pig travesty. Even though I will be watched in NY the next three years, err..shit four years, I’m confident in how I take care of myself. There just might be some truth to the ole notion, we are here for a reason.

As I was speaking to my oncologist recently about an impending visit, he mentioned he didn’t like to refer to my cancer as ‘Thyroid cancer’, he said, “your cancer was technically at your trachea, wrapped around your thyroid.” As crazy as this sounds, it was a Christmas gift. It reminded me of where I have been, what I did for myself to find my answers, and how precious life really is.

So, along with a consistent career in freelance writing, I’m going to give my story time, that is one of the things I learned in this ordeal. I’m lucky to have it.
