They say I’m indestructible.
They also say that the law of big numbers says things have to go my way one of these days.
Yesterday, I went to see my neurologist. If you’re wondering why a 30-year-old man has to go see a neurologist, the answer is that I survived brain cancer last year. And this fall, I had what everyone thought was a stroke.
Except it wasn’t.
My neurologist told me the news straight up: I have multiple sclerosis.
When my mom found out she had it, she had my dad by her side. When I found out, I had four office walls, an exam room, and a chair.
They say I’m indestructible. Except I’m not. And I’ve never felt more alone in my life.
They say the law of big numbers evens everything out eventually. Eventually can’t come soon enough.
