I won’t be gone much longer and I’m only uploading this because I don’t want people to think I’m not okay when I am. However, my mom was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and it has already changed my life in many ways. Making people laugh [sic] is something I enjoy doing especially when it’s natural and from me. But when things are not ok I have to look out for myself first. And they aren’t okay right now.. but they will be. This will only make me stronger. Time is all that’s in the way.
