Dear Newly Diagnosed Self..

Dear 16 year old me,

In 3 days you will be diagnosed with something that will change your world, little girl. You’re going to mature much faster than you expected. Life wanted more out of you at a younger age & this will change you.

I know you just got out of a lengthy, scary, life-threatening ICU stay. I know you had to say goodbye far too early in life to loved ones who won’t ever feel the same about the things that went unsaid during and after that hospital stay.
