We Get Only Today

I
won’t run away from  a challenge

I

Will move towards it

I

Will not let fear blind me

I

Will Face it

I

Will not hide from the truth

I

Will Learn from it

I

Search in the darkness

I

Seek the light

I

Won’t see an end

I

Find a new beginning

I

Will not  turn away from myself

But

Back to myself

once

A Doctor Visit Horror!

Rising blood pressure

Long wait in the lobby

To pass time a nice keurig coffee selection

Beats Starbucks

The call came in

Hunting for a non-existent vein for blood work

Waiting again in the sub area

Nurse checking my vitals

Afraid to be sent right to the hospital next door

Taking to the  exam room

Waiting again

How you feeling she asks?

Must be feeling great to be in here really

Next stop scheduling desk

Making sure  scheduled for the right procedure

Trip to the pharmacy

Picking up not sure what and why

Oh my

Pharmacist suggesting writing a prescription

To make sure if I stop breathing

A nasal spray will be needed

Followed by a 911 call

Would I know I stopped breathing?

Needless to say

Walked out without this prescription

A trip back to the doctor is needed

Might be safer to stay home

With a trip to Starbucks instead
