Can I Pass for “Normal”?

  • img_0016-2I just want this over. I don’t quite know what to expect. I trust my doctor, but this is actually brain surgery. It’s a bit nerve wracking. Things could go wrong, I know they won’t,but they might. Of course they won’t.

Is this the way it feels to be a patient again?

I spent my whole life trying to pass as “normal”

Now my life is going to doctors who can only fix one piece of me at a time.

i’ll never be completely whole again

i’ll never be able to “pass as normal” again

Pretty soon I’ll just have to live with whatever they can’t fix.

That sucks.

But for now at least they’re fixing what they can.
