I’ve been keeping a little book where I have the doctor’s write down when they come and what they did while they were here. I have them write important information down so that I’m not as confused by all of it as before. On most of the pages I’ve painted something that symbolizes how I feel about that particular visitor as well as the visit itself.
The last few months of my health care are spelled out in a book of collages, drawings, paintings and scribbles. Upon review, seeing art makes the pill easier to swallow. This is my way of processing what’s going on and making ugly a little more palatable.
Oh, and, of course the book cover has sunflowers on it. ….. naturally, duh!
