So, I won’t write much as I am fairly busy today, but it is a fairly important day that I feel the need to note quickly. It is three years today since I was told I had a tumour in my abdomen. It also notes the first time I have been sick for longer than not while dating Amelia.
I am not sure how exactly I feel about these things. Clearly they are tempered by recent developments with the disease any my outlook. I think it is impossible for me to view things in the same way that I could have 2 months ago. I am proud to have survived three years. I do think that my actions and attitude have had a great influence on my survival. I am also incredibly proud and grateful that my relationship with Amelia has only become stronger through the struggle. However I see what this disease has done to the people around me, especially those closest to me and it makes me very sad that it has now been happening for so long. Obviously the alternative (that I die) is not one that I intend on taking up any time soon, however I can’t help but feel sad at how much damage something so small has managed to do.
Anyway, you know how it is, places to go people to see. Hope everybody has a great weekend.
