True Life

Mtv's "True Life" started off a brand new season with an episode that I am sure all of us can relate to. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this show, it is basically a documentary series that follows the lives of people, from schizophrenics to shopaholics to embarrassing parents. It is a fascinating and wonderful show. The premiere episode of the new season is titled "True Life: I Need A Transplant". I highly recommend you give it a watch. Although, an advanced warning if I may, don't watch it in front of anyone you want to impress, unless you'd like to do so with puffy eyes and a drooling nostril. It's very emotional (or maybe I am just an emotional person). Not gonna lie... I am
terrified of the transplant procedure we are planning to go through this summer. My feelings towards it are a mixture of pure dread and anticipation, because I know it will do my mom wonders. In the long run, it is a small price to pay if it will mean a remission that lasts 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20 years. Just gotta be strong.

Provided is a link to the show you can watch online. Note, this is the Canadian website. If you can't access it, try going to mtv.com, then shows, and search True Life. Should be there. Enjoy!

  1. Great post.. I watched it a few weeks ago and could not stop thinking about what a remarkable challenge transplant is. My mom is having an ASCS this summer as well so we are in the same boat... best of luck and good health to you in your summer journey.
