Palliativity 104: Scar Tissue

Posted on November 4, 2010

scar tissue

Family means everything to me. I’m not just talking about blood, it’s the connections we make in life that can never be broken; the unweathered well deep in our hearts.

For a couple of years, death encompased my life. Enough tragedies can blind you and break you down. Lost in the wilderness, I blame the trees for the forest.

—2006-2008—
Suicide
Heart
Cancer
Drunk driver
Age

For my partner and I, the beginning of our relationship was steeped in death. The deep cuts healed us together, stitched at the heart. The greater the damage, the stronger the bonds: scar tissue that I know you saw… Looking at one another, we can see the jagged pain as well as the joy. We learned to accept life’s contradictions.

The symptoms and proffered cures however are another matter—

Antidepressants
Pacemaker
Radiation
Trial
Palliatives…

‡ Δ ‡

Tragedy can become a chronic condition if we merely tread water. Assess the damage and heal strong. Destiny doesn’t pull punches, so why should we?
