What should be the #1 priority for every human being on earth?
I’ve been keeping a journal since “The Big C hit.”
Since “The Big C” hit, I’ve written in my journal over 800 times.
I wrote the following in my journal months ago. Reading it again today woke me up to something I promised to do but haven’t quite followed through. ( but I now will)
I know this is going to help someone (at least I’m hoping it does)
Here is what I wrote in my journal on Fri. 5/6/2022:
“ It’s day 5 since the first symptoms showed. I thought I was just having another mild cold that would be gone in a couple of days but I guess was I wrong.
Whatever the f*^k this is, it’s not something I ever want to experience again for as long as I live.
I didn’t know it was possible to feel this bad, but here I am, lying in bed, feeling like a heap of sh!t, completely helpless and miserable as fu*k. (and typing on a very small screen)
I can’t think
I can’t eat
I can’t feel anything except bad
I have no appetite
Things smell bad
The taste in my mouth is awful
I can’t sleep
I can’t have a conversation
I just want to lie down and do absolutely nothing
It’s been 5 days now and although I feel a little better, I’m weak as hell and I still don’t have an appetite
I can’t really do any work.
I can’t focus
I can’t think straight
I can’t do a lot of things I enjoy doing
I’m still miserable and I can’t wait to feel normal again.
One thing is for sure
I’ll never again take my health for granted again — ever!
I’m going to treat this body better than I have ever treated it
It’s going to be priority #1 because I just realized that NOT even a billion dollars could have made me feel better.
I would pay any amount of money to have this pain taken away
