I had to put my conflict into 2-3 sentences to begin this weeks homework. This is what I came up with:
I exhausted every resource I had and made the decision to have bariatric surgery in November 2013. 150 lbs and 14 month later I discovered a fist size tumor in my neck. The tumor was benign but the nodules in my thyroid were not.
The next prompt was to write about what is at stake. I started with Charlie. Ultimately, it always comes back to us. Challenges teach us who we are, what is important and who is, for that matter. As I write, my hope is that I confront and explore.
