Today I am grateful for:
- My insurance. Yes, the healthcare system in this country is both complex and cruel, but I lucked out and found the best care I could for my budget. I can’t say enough good things about them and the way they take care of me. I hope for Medicare for all one day, but I hope I get to keep working with the nurses and doctors that have gotten me this far.
- Having the rest of the day to do nothing. I’m always really tired after these infusions and this time was worse than usual. I slept for hours afterward and didn’t feel a bit guilty for it. I needed it and the world let me have it. That’s a rare thing.
- My new evening walking time. It’s going to take some getting used too, but the neighborhood is a very different place at 5:00 PM than it is at 8:00 AM. I see more people and more activity now and that’s at the very least interesting.
