It honestly feels so good to be able to write again. It’s not that I haven’t had my laptop or haven’t had the right ideas for topics to write but it’s more of I haven’t had the motivation or real push to write. And I know, you’re probably thinking, “what the hell, why would I take advice on something like this from someone who’s not in a long-lasting committed relationship?” But just hear me out… Sometimes being on the outside looking in, you have a better idea of what reality is and can even bring up some good points.
“Coronavirus kills 9 people in Washington State”…. “Coronaviruses are common worldwide”… “Chinese doctors perform world’s first double-lung transplant for coronavirus victim”… WHAT THE HELL?! I try my best to hold my tongue and watch my language but everyone is freaking out about COVID-19 but this is hell on earth for all transplant recipients – more so heart patients.
Who would have known I’d be in the emergency room on a random Tuesday just conveniently at 1:08am? Probably you. If you’ve been following me on this wild journey, then you know that I’m a frequent flyer at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. I hate to admit it but I know 90% of the cardiac team by first name and even manage to squeeze in impromptu coffee dates with some while picking up refills of my highly-priced medication.
Here we are again full swing. And to be completely honest with you I’m actually really scared. My birthday is weeks away and it freaks me out that I’ll be TWENTY-FIVE. Can we just rewind to the part where I would run off the bus to watch Lizzie McGuire and only take bathroom breaks during the commercials? If only that was a real possibility, right? Well there is a real possibility in successfully setting goals and achieving them in 2020.
Everyone’s situation has its own unique code… DNA if you will. No situation is the same and it shouldn’t be the same. Could you imagine everyone living the same life and having the same issues and going through the same problems – boring. Thank goodness life is no where near “take a right, then take your next immediate left”. But with things being so different and unpredictable for each individual, it leads us to naturally compare our triumphs to others (without putting their background noise into consideration).
