and that’s all I have to say about that

After the diagnosis, I started to dread meeting new doctors. Most don’t know about Lynch.

And after I explain the condition each time, I relive the terror, fear, and dread ย about my future.

Some days, I worry I may have no future.

Some days, I’d rather skip the doctors’ appointments all together.

P.S. I decided to work out these feelings through drawing today. Very. Basic. Drawing. I didn’t promise they would be any good. ๐Ÿ™‚ But it feels great to let it out.

  1. Hey as long as you release your negativity in a productive and healthy way, that’s all that matters. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece or anything, it just has to help you and not cause any unintentional harm. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. OM Gosh! Your drawings are ten (10) times better than mine. Yes you do get tired of going to doctor, after doctor, after doctor. You should write a book/journal from when it all started. Make sure your doctors are talking to each other. Remember it’s your body, your mind and don’t let them forget it. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Ž

    • Well, I have to admit – my 4 year old’s drawings helped and inspired these (A LOT)! And you know – a book/journal sounds like a cool idea…. Hmmm… I am going to let that idea marinate a bit. As for docs and coordinating – I am now seeing all docs connected through the same hospital system just so that everyone can see what is going. Advocating for myself is probably the most challenging, but well worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Keep advocating! ๐Ÿ‘The doctors will learn a lot from YOU. Also remind them everyone in this world is different. Just because one thing may work for you, may not work on someone else! I see you are smiling! I’m smiling back to you. Keep me posted. ๐Ÿ˜‰
