When I was at the ripe old age of 20 i was diagnosed with stage 4 leukemia. We did the math and went over the stages and I had it threw my teenage years. I was told about my options which was take chemo or refuse if I refuse I would need to make my funeral arrangements. I had to take chemo and radiation therapy.Good thing I have freckles it cover up the needle tracks. I did allot of crying I’m not afraid to admit it. I neat the hell out of the cancer and survived. That life experience changed me for the better I have traveled across the US since then hiked across the Smoky mountains i have seen the sun rise in the east and have seen set in the west.I accept what ever good or bad life throws at me all the while I refused to let Brandie come out.I would purge allot of good clothes and shoes thinking a real man dosent do this if I ignore her she will go away.I would let her come out on an occasional Halloween in a costume I would throw away after.Then one day I heard a voice it said you are lucky to be alive damn lucky you beat a very dangerous form of cancer. You walked threw hell and came out singed and smelling of sulfur.So you out of anybody deserve to do what ever you want so enjoy your second lease on life. It was then I finally let her out and I havent purged since. When I came out to my family my mother said Im just glad you are still here we about lost you.
My motto is before you judge me walk a mile in my heels.
Sorry for being long I just had to get the rest of my story out.
