Keeping It Real 

One of the innumerable symptoms of malnutrition is emotional instability. I can cry over anything. Anything. So, because hegemonic healthcare is always something to cry about, you can be sure that my eyes are working double time to hydrate my shirt when it comes to home nursing visit for my TPN, labs and PICC dressing changes. Here is a snapshot of today: ••

Home health nurse: do you have anxiety or depression? •

Me: blank stare. No, starving for the past 10 years has done wonders for my emotional capabilities. “Yes.” •

Also the home health nurse: do you have food intolerances? •

Me: blank stare. “I’m on TPN.” •

Just keeping it real!
