What comes after a diagnosis that comes with a survival expectation?

You’re still in the same body.

You’re still living. And now you know that you’re also dying.

We’re all also dying.

We all have an expiration date.

The cause of death was life, I’ve heard it said.

I think we live and love and create in a dream that we can just keep existing forever.

Until we get a diagnosis and the numbers that come with the miracles of modern medical testing.
