Ever since kindergarten, I have always been a conscientious student. Eager to learn. Self-disciplined. Organized. Theses traits come in handy, especially now that I’m doing a double major in Parkinson’s and breast cancer. Still, sometimes the learning curve is quite steep. Even treacherous.
I’m still recovering from the shock of today’s lesson: the repercussions of going public with my declining health. It happened early this morning while listening to myself on CBC radio: my disembodied voice talking about my art show and my diseases. Suddenly, I heard my sadness. I heard my pain. I heard my reality.
I wonder if other people heard this too?
