Mike is a citizen, keeps facing into the work. Real strengths.
I don't know anyone who's taken as many consecutive beatings as he has – lived through lymphoma (barely) then into remission, and starting to get his life moving.
Just in time for crohns to hit him like a goddamn truck.
It's entirely possible that he's been closer to death than ever he was from lymphoma; he's been bad sick, hospitalizations, operations, on and on. Crohns sucks.
I'm his sponsor, I'm supposed to keep pointed away from self-pity but it's hard here, I'm really angry Mike has been hammered this way.
