When I was in the hospital the other day, I was looking around at all the obviously ill people, and I thought, dear god I would
NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS
have thought I’d become one of them, one of those ill people, people who look ill and weak, who hobble along because they are in pain, or have weakened muscles, or have tubes coming out of their noses, etc.
But I have, I’m one of those ‘ill people’ you see on hospital visits: Sometimes the whole horrible episode just HITS you!
Then, the other morning, just for a couple of hours, I could almost taste better. It was like a brief glimpse at what I was, before…this ‘thing’ hit me, this alien thing, this disease, this interloper. It is not me, it is not who I am, but it feels sometimes that I am becoming it.
I have had symptoms for almost a year now and been very unwell since late April, which seems such a long time, but now I’m ready for better please.
Bring it on, enough is enough.
