This is not a pretty story.
When I was 21 years old they told me I had cancer. I was a young single parent with three kids living with a toxic man who beat me.
I underwent intense radiation treatments and ended up with severe radiation damage to the gut. Over the years I underwent several reconstructive operations. None were sucessful. Every few years the repairs broke down.
Somebody messed up and burnt me.
I learned to live with it.
Radiation is forever.
