Hi, my name is Taylor, and three days ago, I received one of the worst texts in my entire life. It was from my best friend, who I’ll refer to as lil ducky (Our nicknames for each other are lil ducky and ducky). It read; “I have some bad news, I have leukemia.” She is fifteen. My heart dropped and I went completely numb. I had no idea it was possible to be shaking so hard yet feel nothing. She had been sick for a few weeks, and I had even skipped out on Halloween so we could hangout at her house together.
At this time, I do not know many details, but am terrified. And then I think; :”If I feel like this, how must she feel?” Her family has been through so much already with her brother, who also has countless health issues as well. She is one of the most supportive, possitive and resilient people I have ever met.
All I want to do is see her, but I cannot until her first round of chemo is over.
Anyone have any advice or info? I’m so lost. It would be dearly appreciated.
