During my doctor appointment on Friday, I described to him some of the wonderful, amazing things that I have been experiencing. I didn’t need him to agree, just listen.
Doctors like to help, and, meaning to be helpful, he brushed each one off with the best logical explanation he could offer. But his explanations were based on the way he sees the world. None of them sounded right or resonated with me and my view of life.
I decided to stop sharing stories with him. I knew that if I continued sharing, his point of view could pull me down and away from awe and wonder and life.
Still, I was affected by his point of view. Was I really seeing things clearly?
Then I saw this video today, a four-minute clip where Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D. tells a story from her residency at Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York, when she witnessed a patient with Osteogenic Sarcoma recover without a satisfactory medical explanation. It helped her to have new eyes, and watching this video restored my sight as well.
I am blessed to be sharing and living in this awe-some, wonder-filled world with you.
