I got a call tonight that my nephew is having emergency surgery for a compound fracture on his ankle. The ankle he hurt before. The same leg that endured intensive knee surgery two years ago. He is 15. The poor guy!
He is alive and his injuries are not life threatening yet, I was overcome with an overwhelming feeling of doom and gloom. A tightening in my chest. A sensation that the ceiling was caving in and that I along with all of humanity, was on the brink of death. That the world was coming to an end, at last. It was yet another piece of bad news I had heard throughout the day making it unbearable to take. The accumulation of negativity got the best of me.
Please, make it stop.
