“…. it was time to move on,
a time to appreciate all that life had given you and to strive towards health in the hopes that, one day, you too would be able to give back in whatever way you can.
You are given but one life. During your lifetime, there will be many chances and opportunities; it is these that need to be recognised for the blessings that they are, even if they come in the form of a disease, as unwelcome a gift as that may be.
Once that time comes, it will not be a period to dwell on the past, to ask, “Why me?”
Appreciate your family and friends, create the memories of a lifetime, and hope you would be able to return the kindness showered on you.”
– Idayu Maarof; excerpt from The Doctor is Sick (2016)
