On the side of my fridge, there hangs an award I’m incredibly proud of: YMC’s Most Enthusiastic Award. Ask most people who know me and they’ll tell you I’m an energetic person; many will say I’m positive.
Today, I find absolute joy in being negative.
There are few times in life you want someone to tell you you’re negative but when it’s your doctor telling you about your recent biopsy results, negative is the new positive.
I know it’s not the end of the road for me.
I know there will be more tests, more treatments, probably more silver nitrate, more questions, more answers, more appointments, more prodding. But I’m elated to know it’s not cancer.
A couple of hours after hearing the news, I closed my eyes and I laughed. I laughed because I was relieved; I was instantly lighter. I was negative and it was the lightest, most wonderful feeling in the world.
But fear not: I’ll be positive again tomorrow.
