Mixed Feelings

Should I be happy, scared, or something else?

I'm scared but excited,

slightly guilty too.

I need to put my health first

but I feel bad for needing my time.



Will I lose my job?

Will I heal properly?

How hard will recovery be?



Will I be free of strep forever?

Will the sore throats go away?

Will the pain be gone forever?


Am I overthinking this,

like everything else?

Everything will go smoothly,
