When I started putting this book together, I was twenty-four years old. Less than two weeks away from my twenty-fifth birthday, and eleven months after my first surgery for stage three breast cancer. It originally began as a journal when I was diagnosed. Then, as I grew more depressed and pieces of my life started to fall apart and affect me more, I stopped writing. I don’t know why. Maybe I was too sad to write. Maybe I didn’t want to remember.
This is a journal entry from the first time I ever smoked pot, which was to subdue the nausea from chemotherapy. Enjoy!
