You aren’t going to want to hear this. You’re headstrong, stubborn, independent and determined. These are all qualities which will be useful later in life, but—you should hear me out.

I was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) on April 26, 2007. I received one year of chemo and one month of radiation. Undergoing both treatments simultaneously was not easy.

That feeling when everything is just too much. Extreme tiredness. A lack of interest in things, feeling negative emotions like frustration, anger or sadness all the time.
