Writing prompt from NaBloPoMo “Are you okay with letting people see you cry?”
I spent this whole summer being sick. One virus after another. The kind of I-feel-like-I-was-rolled-over-by-a-mac-truck kind of sick. Finally I ended up admitted through emergency for sever dehydration and symptoms no diagnosis. I was placed in isolation. I experienced the most acute fear I have ever felt.
And I cried. I sobbed. I cried my little heart out. I cried with doctors, cleaners, support staff, and I cried with my friends.
Was I okay with people seeing me cry before this? No. Am I know, definitely.
No one thought less of me. Everyone just wanted to help.
Yes. Yes I am okay with people seeing me cry.
