Dark Dreams

September 10th, 2021

“I know this sounds like a happy, impossibly perfect ending, but it’s not.

I have to work really hard for this. It’s not easy to talk. It’s not easy to ask for help. It’s not easy to accept that others want to help.

Like cancer, there is always the fear that it could come back. I have to be vigilant.

I still have dark days, and sometimes I have dark dreams.

But not every day.

That’s been the biggest change. Finally accepting that not every day will be a good one, but also knowing that not every day will be bad, either. And no matter what kind of day today turns out to be, there will always be at least one more, waiting for me like a light at the end of a tunnel.”

I'm me, of course. Or am I?
