Bad news and my health
Hello everyone, PurpleHoneyComb here. This is a bit of an unfortunate post and while I would prefer to keep the mood lighter here I'm not exactly sure who else to tell. I don't want to tell any of my friends yet and my girlfriend has amready been made aware. I just need someone to vent to.
For the last several months, I've been suffering from varying degrees of leg pain. I had seen my general practitioner for it on several occasions and the general idea (originally) was the it was sciatic nerve pain.
Yesterday (the 23rd), finally tired of the pain and seeking a second opinion I decided to go to the hospital and admit myself. Something that I likely should have done weeks ago, but that's besides the point.
I was unfortunately informed that my right tibia has developed stage two osteosarcoma. The only good news is that the doctors have found no signs of the cancer metastasizing to other parts of the body. Which is a relief.
I'm not sure how react to any of this, as I'm only 20. I feel so bad for ignoring the leg pain for as long as I did and I'm worried that my lack of reaction made this much worse than it already was. I did everything I was supposed to, or rather everything I could have done yet I feel like I screwed up somewhere along the way.
Fuck man. I don't know what I'm going to do. I feel awful for my girlfriend and her family for this falling into the holiday season.
