A to Z

Challenge:

Create a short story, piece of memoir, or epic poem that is 26 sentences long, in which the first sentence begins with “A” and each sentence thereafter begins with the next letter of the alphabet.

Already it had begun. Before it was never this bad. Cancer is a bad disease. Death can sometimes occur. Even earlier than expected. Far be it from us mortals to determine how long. God grant us serenity. His will be done. I can’t do  it  myself. Just depend on my Higher Power. Knowledge of this disease is depressing. Love is  needed at all times. Money helps us with research. Nobody is  immune. Open your hearts to those that suffer. Powerful drugs are being  developed every day. Quick and easy are never an option. Results can be devastating. Statistically we are improving our success rates. Technically brilliant people are working on this all the time. Until such time as there is a definite cure we all suffer. Very seldom is the initial diagnosis received with open arms. We will fight until we find a cure. X-ray technology is  fast improving. Young people are prone to this disease as are the elderly.  Zinc is a constituent of many enzymes that permit chemical reactions to proceed at normal rates.

Psychotherapy — Back to School

Image

The daily prompt today is:

If you could take a break from your life and go back to school to master a subject, what would it be?

My answer is Psychotherapy.

Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud

I do have an undergraduate degree (B.A) in Psychology. I had planned to continue this line of  study but something called “Viet Nam” came along that interrupted my plans. Attending Graduate School did  not quality you for  the cherished student deferment (2-S). A letter from the Selective Service was one of the  first letters I received after graduation. At that time they instituted a “Lottery” system instead of the  regular draft. I have never any good in gambling and lost this time too. I got  as far as Ft. Wayne in Detroit. I had already received my Bible and was standing  in line in my underwear when the Doctor called me aside and  informed me that the Army  didn’t want to draft me because I had a previous  heart condition  which I had actually out grown. I was given  a bus ticket home and that was my service career.

I should  have gone  back to Graduate school at that time  but money was an issue. So…I started my employment career.

I  wish I could go back to school today but I’m afraid too much time has elapsed and I would  have to start all over  again. Not that much time left for me.

Thanks for the inspiration from the Daily Prompt.
