Tonight I am Happy. That’s right. Happy with a capital ‘H’.
For the first time in 29 days, I have socialised with my friends in a place that is not a hospital, my flat or my parents house. I went to a pub. That’s right, a pub. EJ went to a pub. I drank non-alcoholic beer. We talked about things. Most of it was not about cancer. Right now, I want to cartwheel around my flat and bloody boogie. This was my milestone and I could do it.
There were some slight amendments to the norm, clearly.
The beer for example, was 0%. The pub is located 30 seconds from my flat. My friends had to tuck my chair in for me. I had a walking stick. I did not have any make up on. When I got back to my flat, I had to take an Aciclovir, an Allopurinol, a Diazepam and two paracetamols.
But I went out and now I am happy. Go figure.
