Unleash that Inner Warrior

Nell: You’re up early this morning.

Me: Yes. It’s my Wednesday Writers workshop and then I’m off to the hospital for my cancer checkup.

Nell: You look worried.

Me: There are a few things I’d like them to check on.

Nell: It will be fine.

Me: I hope so.

Nell: If there is anything of concern they will monitor it and then remove it if necessary.

Me: Thank goodness for the NHS.

Nell: It’s completely understandable that you’re worried. Anyone would be.

Me: Yes.

Nell: The important thing is to get it checked.

Me: You’re right.

Nell: It’s the reason why you decided to share your cancer journey.

Me: It is. If one person gets themselves checked because of me then it’s worth it.

Nell: In the meantime let’s concentrate on happier things. It’s less than two weeks until Alice, Andre and the grandchildren are visiting.

Me: I’m so excited. It really isn’t long now.

Nell; They’re spending three weeks here and then you go back to Berlin with them for a holiday.

Me: Yes. I hope they have good weather while they’re here.

Nell: It’s been so hot in Germany recently that a few weeks of cooler weather will be much appreciated.

Me: True.

Nell: So, don’t worry about that.

Me: No. I have enough to worry about already.

Nell: Stop jumping ahead of yourself. Unleash that inner warrior.

Me: I think I might have misplaced her.

Nell: She’s there. You just have to find her.

Me: Yes.

Nell: Have you had any breakfast yet?

Me: I’m not very hungry.

Nell: Well, David’s on his way upstairs right now with toast and cuddles.

Me: Bless him.

Nell: It’s just what you need.

Me: Sorry for being a bit anxious.

Nell: Cancer is scary. No need for sorries. Not today.
