It's 2017.

On 12/22 I discovered that my cancer was out of remission. According to the CT scan it looks like it's worse than it was in 2015. I know I can feel pain and discomfort this time and that is not what I experienced previously.

I'll know what treatment options are available to me, as well as its staging, on 1/6.

What does this mean in practical terms? I could either miss a couple days of work every week (best case) or I'm incapacitated due to chemotherapy and radiation treatment (worst case). Both scenarios entail missing the next large subscription show. This is a problem.

I've only recently become financially stable since moving to San Francisco. I had enough money saved to survive the no-work holiday season, but that's already looking slim. I think that I'm going to have to leave California because of this. That means that I'll probably stay with my sister in AZ or go to stay with my dad in PA.

I don't want to do either.

It's not fair.
