You are not a sad story
I know someone who had a kidney transplant this winter. She was sick for ages, and now she is still fragile, but looking terrific.

"Hi, how are you?" she asked at a gathering this spring. "I remember that something really bad was happening to you."

So much had happened to people at that party. There was a recent widower and his shell-shocked young kids. And there was this woman walking up to me, who'd almost died before her friend donated a kidney.

And something bad was happening to me? ugh. I do not want to be that person.

My new friend Nadine gave me this quote: "You are not the sad story that plays in your head."
