Actually anything I write from now on may be a trigger just so you know.
I am still in hospital and the diagnosis was shocking... Stage 4 lung cancer. I have been through every test known to man. I am tired but I am also a little feisty.
I had a permanent chest tube put in last Thursday. That was the beginning of rhe 'fun'. The nurse asked if all my jewelry was off and I said everything but my genital piercing. I wish you could have seen her reaction!
She swung around from the computer and looked directly at me for the first time and exclaimed so everyone there could hear "You're joking right?! A GENITAL PIERCING!!!!!!!"
I assued her I was not joking. She entered the information and eventually the procedure went ahead. But I was reeling a bit. I felt embarrassed and humiliated.
There is more to this story but that's it for today.
