    Very Suddenly

    It all started on what was supposed to be a relatively happy Friday. I was taking the last final of my college career (history), and I thought I heard my phone vibrate several times. Since I was in the middle of an exam, I obviously couldn't answer my phone. As soon as I finished...

    My mom has kidney disease.

    She was diagnosed with it when I was eleven (sixteen now) and after she had my little sister. I'm one of five kids now and although everything is okay with her right now I still worry a lot. Like if she's gone for too long I worry she's in the hospital. I know she's not going to...

    I'm so broken up. My dad has had Multiple

    Sclerosis for over 10 years, but this last year has been worse than the previous 1 combined. He's my rock and my strength. I admire him more than anyone else in the world. He is intelligent and kind and a good man. And now he's turning into someone I don't know. I can't talk...

    Why?

    My mom has been battling multiple sclerosis and it's recently feeling unfair that not only does she have to have her life taken away from her as she is too sick to even be herself but me and my family are suffering too. I miss the days my mom would drive me to school, cook...
