Kid, I knew you were strong but wow.
I recently requested all of my medical records since 2001. You may have seen it in my stories yesterday but I finally received the MASSIVE stack of records. I spent last night going through them and was turning pages like a book I couldn't put down.
I first broke my leg and it took about 4 months for us to realise that there was something serious underlying and that moment was one of the first pages I read (slide across to read).There were records of conversations in there that Dad had with Doctors when I was complaining of pain after the initial break without us knowing what was ahead of us.
Then the following pages were the doctor's notes from different stages in my journey. Seeing the words "Week 9 of Chemotherapy" then "Week 15", "psychiatric input for upcoming surgery" then "Week 25" & it kept going. The mouth ulcers, the weight loss leading to a feeding tube, the full details of what took place during surgeries (I've blurred those details for you) and all the bits in between. Then to the day the decision was made to amputate my leg. Honestly it was the most mind blowing thing to read, to know that that was your body facing all of that, to know that your parents had to go through all of that. It's just a chapter in my story now but wow if that's not perspective then I dont know what is ⭐

Wow !! You are an absolute legend and your parents are so strong too xx
I admire you so much. The way you lay bare your vulnerabilities without self judgement or a badge of honour. The way you acknowledge yourself with compassion - it is gift to see and offers such wise learning. It gives me the courage to share my personal stories with honesty and pride 🌱
After reading this I feel I should request my medical notes. I am sure it will make for a good read over several months.
Gosh...to read all that...what you had to go through. You are an amazing young woman.❤️❤️
