Although I’m in avoidance mode, I still have so many things to say. Last week’s daily post “Freaky Friday” got me thinking – oh and how I wish I could swap this whole situation with someone who actually deserves
to understand it (why am I being so nice?).
For just one day, if I could, and since my daughter and I are one in her illness (she would have to be included) – I would swap her health with that of all the doctors who did not listen and told her and still tell her she needs to start exercising and attending school again, or the ones who say there is nothing wrong with her and that her condition is “normal”.
I would hope for a day like yesterday; a day where she could not get out of bed, not only because she was in such pain and so weak, but because her body was literally like gelly – like that of a gummy bear who was left in the sun for a little too long.
And I would sit in their chair and meet with all these now sick doctors and show them how I use my knowledge and compassion to determine why they are feeling that way.
For just one day and maybe they would actually learn something for once and know how to make a difference.
