Past

I just haven't been up to any creating. I've been dealing with an incidental medical finding. I had back surgery almost a year and a half ago. Since I've still been having pain, the neurosurgeon ordered an MRI. A tumor was found on my liver. I was terrified of what it was. Formally, I've been diagnosed with a giant hemangioma. It's congenital & the growth is exacerbated by steroids & birth control pills. Well, I've been on the pill since I was 19! I saw a liver transplant surgeon who will operate next month to remove it. Since it is dangling off a lobe of my liver, it could break off or twist. If this happened, I would hemorrhage to death before anyone could help me. I want this abnormality removed, but I am scared.

I have experienced many emotions, but have been disappointed by some of my oldest friends. This is what emerged when I finished this page today.
