Holy Fuck



I've just had the shit scared out of me. I actually left the house for a bit today and when I came back there was a message from my Dr.'s office for me to call them. I get blood work done every two weeks because my type of leukemia is aggressive and quick. I have the results sent to my house directly just to be sure.

I'm at the end of the road for my treatment. I am in remission and everything should be okay from here on but if it came back....

When the school principal calls the first thing she says is, "Your son/daughter is okay!" and then she talks to you about whatever. I think when leaving messages the Dr.'s office should say "You're not going to die!"

It turns out they wanted to talk about my vagina but I almost wore out the phone calling them because they weren't picking up.

I had a fellow bone marrow transplanter say to me once "Aren't you constantly afraid it will come back? I'm terrified every time I get my blood work done".

NO. I am not afraid and don't give it much of a thought when they draw my blood. I'm living today and I refuse to live in fear.

I am shaking now, though. My yummy pie tastes like cardboard. Fear sucks ass.

Want me to kick some thoughtless fools teeth in for you? I'll dig out my steel toe cap boots to do it if you like.

The call was about your vagina?! I hope everything is alright down there and that those men finally showed up!

Take a deep breath, maybe a hot shower, and you know what, if you're still shaky, call your doctor back and tell them their message scared you!!! That'll make you feel better!!

I'm going to tell the receptionist to give a quick "this is about" when leaving messages so I don't go over the deep end.
