Unexpected

I ran into an old colleague. It was unexpected but really nice to chat with her for a few moments.

Eight years ago, when I was literally being wheeled to my first craniotomy (head bandaged and wrapped and all) – we passed each other in the hospital. I in my wheelchair, she was standing near a Nurses Station. I assume she was there visiting someone, family, etc. I can still see and feel in my body RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT my emotions at that exact moment – so many years ago.

It’s so odd to me, albeit even overwhelming, that I still have such intense reactions to things that trigger me to that time in my life.

That time of my life was a living hell.

I wonder if my vivid memories – and the reactions they trigger in me – will ever subside?
