The Symbolic Loss Of My Earring

I bought these earrings as a reward for making it to my third MRI at Swedish Neuroscience in Seattle a few weeks ago. I have been in a flare of my MS which seems to be subsiding.

I lost the other earring. I take this lightly and yet seriously. My MS is going back into remission. I might be able to run again soon.

I do not need this earring as a reminder. Perhaps I will turn the remaining one into a distant memory. I think it would make a great Christmas tree decoration or funky thing to hang in the bathroom or office. -Alison Whiteman
