This was about a week after my first chemo treatment. My youngest brother, Carlton, had come from Michigan to be with me. A couple days after he left, I felt.. pain. I started feeling so emotional and I didn’t know why. I figured it was likely all the drugs in my system. But the pain was so deep. Then it occurred to me.. I’m having separation anxiety.
When he came to visit me again during my treatments, I started feeling this pain again just at the thought of him leaving. Carlton and I have been close most of our lives but I would’ve never thought I would experience separation anxiety. I was on the verge of breaking down during most of this video and you can hear it in my voice..
This is my journey..
