Even though I am almost certain it's not something terminal and that swollen lymph nodes are a sign that your body is fighting back, I will honestly admit that thoughts like "oh crap, am I going to die?" or "oh no, there are so many things I haven't done" have crossed my mind. Ridiculous I know and I plan on getting it checked out by a professional. But all in all, what I learned was that while I used to think that I wasn't afraid of dying, I realized that I am. Maybe when I am older I won't be...but right now, very much so. While I've always had an appreciation and admiration of the strength of people who are/have been fighting their illnesses, through my self imposed experience, I gained an even greater appreciation.
Anyways, just a bunch of random thoughts.
It's been cold here in DC and the metro definitely isn't helping. Came across this and somehow it really appealed to me..
Oh yeah kiddies, T-Minus 5 days till we leave for South Africa! So excited to explore and experience a beautiful country with one of the biggest reasons of why I wouldn't want to die any time soon! :)
