The next day I’m preparing to leave for my mom to pick me up. I realized this severe pain shooting down my spine, I steadily took ibuprofen and other over the counter medicines hoping it would slowly go away over time. It didn’t seem at the time that it was something unusual or out of the ordinary. Finally, my mom picked me up we went and grabbed something to eat, then headed on our 30 minute trip home. I sat in the middle of the
Becky was a 23-year-old girl who got diagnosed with a melanoma after she saw an irregular mole on the back of her leg. She said she started tanning at 17 with her mom and got a tan 2-3 times a week once she started college. She is now 27 and does not know whether or not her cancer will come back. Becky’s story is only one of many, so many people use tanning beds not knowing what they do to them or not caring. Parents encourage their kids to tan even if they know the consequences and no one is saying anything.
She recalls that she was forced to stay inside for almost 2 months because the pain was unbearable. Everytime she stood up the wound would reopen and she would bleed out. She wasn 't able to shower for three weeks. She was exremely lucky that she didn 't share the same fate as the other girls from her tribe. (Reveal Topic) Female Gential Mutilation.
Not only did she already have postpartum depression, but she is basically trapped in this house for a whole summer with nothing to do so she can heal. Not following the instructions given to her by her doctor and being confined in this area has caused some sort of mental build up. The wallpaper driving her crazy, suffering a mental illness, and having such an isolated lifestyle in a house isolated from the main villages has put thoughts into her head that she believes, like being the woman in the wall. That was the effect; the cause of all of this is simply because she wanted something to do after having her whole life changed for a few months, so she went to the
When we left the school my parents remained quiet about the situation, I believe they felt it would keep my brothers and me safe if we were unaware. Furthermore, parents were so frantic that it took weeks before some students returned to school. It’s hard for such a horrible catastrophe to have an impact on someone who is only ten years old. However, watching movies and reading articles as an adult puts things into perspective. When I think back on September 11th I feel like it was a dream because I was so young.
When I entered third grade I felt some discrimination due to my race since you know how kids are not knowing any better so I didn’t particularly feel good there, this continued on till 6th grade where once in middle school I stayed in the library this was not particularly a good idea for my social skills, I didn’t open up till 7th grade where I joined the school’s choir however it was a bit odd considering since I was still in a emo phase honestly it seems ridiculous as of now, I stayed there till December of 2015 where I moved to the dreaded state of South Carolina, much different from the more liberal area of prior residence. When I came South Carolina I at first attended Macedonia middle school where in which my grades were hurt due to the different curriculums, I never fully adapted to the school, but neither did I have to spend more time at the school because thankfully I was able to transfer to Berkeley Middle in which I stayed for the rest of year, although the graduation was less than luck luster where in comparison to my prior middle school in california where in which students were adorned with a proper ceremony as well as gowns to walk in, which far outshone the simple shake of the hand and walking across
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
The inferior lobe, lower part, of my left lung is scar tissue and I don’t get as much as oxygen as the “normal” person does. I spent a large amount of time in the hospital in an oxygen tent during the first few years of my life. The doctors put me on a transplant list, but, my mom argued with the doctors and told them that she didn’t want me to have a transplant. When I was three, I received a diagnosis of asthma. This new diagnosis led to more hospital time, more medications and more doctors informing my mom I needed a transplant, still, she resisted.
Over the next approximately 6 months, Peg made an amazing recovery and though she was the last of the 4 other girls to get to Sheltering Arms she was the first to be discharged to go home. She shared many great memories with the girls and Peg’s parents came every Sunday not only for Peg but for Dorothy, Alice, Shirley, and Renee. The day Peg was discharged, her mother took her out early and they drove to The University Hospital so Peg can walk for him. It was a great accomplishment and not many were able who were diagnosed with polio. Many were restricted to iron lungs, wheelchairs, walking sticks, and some passed away.
