Listen, Lucy,

 

Hi! I was at Michaila's speech and you talked about this website... In fact, i was in the crowd typing this... But anyway. I'm typing because I wanna express something that absolutely SUCKS... Cancer. I was diagnosed with leukemia at 11. Doctors were hammering me every day with drugs for the first 3 months... After that it was every 4 days.. then every week... It got lighter, but I developed some sort of anxiety or something? Idk... The drugs that they were giving me were LITERALLY KILLING my cells. So I had a terrible immune system. And it also made me sensitive to smells, tastes, and most of all, Pain. When they clean the tubes that were hooked to my chest it smelled Like someone squeezed lemons and salt into your throat and nostrils... Other drugs I was given had to be injected into my legs and spine. I had to be asleep for spinal taps and when I woke I hallucinated to the point where my balance was off. Those ones were the worst... Or is it the fact that I was NEVER home during those 2 years for Christmas. Idk. I couldn't eat food or take pills because I would vomit them up in the hospital. I developed a fear of needles which my mom calls ptsd.

But it gets better. I'm currently going on 14 and I'm in remission. I have to go every 2 months for checkups. And I haven't heard anything since about it coming back. But something I'll never forget is the emotions and feelings (physical and emotional). I was so sensitive i developed a depression from the experience. But no matter where I went I always had friends and family to help me through whatever emotions that blockaded my path...
