Oh my gosh, Anon, that *sucks,* I’m so sorry to hear it! And so close to the go-time date, too. I know how long wait times for surgery can be, but having to start waiting *again*…
I’m careful never to say “I know exactly how you feel,” but I’ll say this much: there was a time, right after I visited London, when [REDACTED]’s team had turned me down, when I looked around at how far I’d come– the five years I spent saving and planning– and *still* they’d said no? I felt like never getting up from that punch.
And looking back, I’m so, SO glad I didn’t give up then. I didn’t know how awesome this story would get from there!
Thank you for the compliments, and just think: there’s gonna be a time in the future when you wake up, and the whole waiting mess is gonna be in the past, like a bad dream. Let that day guide you when things seem bleak, yeah? ‘Cause you’re getting closer to it all the time. :3
