Going to Your Head

Year after year,

Doctor after doctor,

Condescension, followed by condemnation,

Followed by empty, cover your ass words, to a sky ghost.

And they still know all the answers.

Drs. Know it all,

They are convinced.

Even after I challenge every notion of what is true.

Given 3 months of life,

I am alive eight years later.

Labeled incapable,

I got into law school.

Called fragile,

I travel, and swim, and walk for miles at a time in the name of charity.

So, please, don’t let a title go to your head.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
