I DIDN'T COME TO MAYO TO GET BETTER

I DIDN’T COME TO MAYO TO “GET BETTER”

Here we are…headed for round two of many trips to Mayo. Another week of answers. Another week of being cared for by some of the best.

“You’re gonna get better, Kirsten!” “They are going to help you to a speedy recovery.”

Nope! You’re wrong. Wrong indeed. I am not going to get better. My illness lives with me for the rest of my life. It also brings along many of the other co-morbid illnesses with it. I am not going to get better.

However, I am hoping to see some improvement.  I am hoping to be given a treatment plan that will allow me to be able to live my life to the fullest. I am hoping to be given a team of doctors who will fight for my health.  But mostly, I am hoping that those who surround me will understand that this is my life; my illness exists and it isn’t going anywhere.


Remember, "Count your Rainbows, not your Thunderstorms".
