Earth's city lights seen from space
Recently I wrote about a woman who emailed me, who was going in for an MRI due to strange symptoms. She had the MRI was told that everything is normal. She wrote me:
cities seen from space
show consumption, not a
candle for each death
I got my results and it was normal. I broke down and cried when they told me. And you know, coming and telling you this is so hard. I know that you'll be happy and you wouldn't want anyone else to go through what you are going through, but yet I feel guilty for being OK and you aren't.
I understand the feeling, because I sometimes had similar thoughts before I was diagnosed, when people were showing so much concern for me. There is something tender and loveable about humanity that we would feel guilty not to have a fatal affliction.
