A SMALL REBELLION
Each time you’re admitted to the hospital as an in-patient, you’re given a gown and a pair of poorly made non-slip socks. Initially, I wore those lifeless beige socks and accepted my role as a patient, but the more time I spent in the hospital, the more I started wearing my own socks. Fun socks. Socks with fish. Socks with dinosaurs. Socks with wolves. And it helped. It may seem ridiculous, but that little change reminded me that whatever the circumstances—no matter how little I wanted to be cooped up in the hospital, my perception of that hospital experience was under my control. Treatment became my opportunity to create purpose.
