Live Life to Its Fullest

BY: Robert M

I was 16, and on the bus to school, think about the test that I forgot to study for. Shortly before I got on the bus I started to fell sick. It was about ten minutes into the trip that I decide to get the bus driver aittion. But when I spoke words were barley coming out of my mouth. What was wrong with me I never have lost my voice when I was at camp, cheering on the schools basket ball team, and cheering on my own hockey team. I had never lost my voice ever. I got my friends attion who got the ation of my others friend who stood up and shouted “bob not felling well.” Bradley our bus driver come back and took a look and radio to the bus barn. They told Bradley to ask me all of these question which I vegley remember. My friend who got the bus drives attion said “hey here come’s a fire truck” I laughed at that think they were over reaction and there was nothing sires.

When the nothing went away my mom was standing over me and as I looked around and I realized I was in a hostile. After I went to the bathroom a string of doctor came in and talked with me. What had happen was I had freak allergic reaction to something but we wont sure what since I’ve always had the same breakfast for years. After months of testing and doctors consulting doctors came the day I developed my belief of you should learn as if you were to live forever and live as if you were to die tomorrow.

The doctors told me I was idiopathic anaphylaxis. Fancy medical terms for we don’t know what caused the allergic reaction but anything at any giving moment can set off an allergic reaction. Since then I have learn a lot about idiopathic anaphylaxis and I’ve always live like I was to die to tomorrow. For you never know what day you’re going to die.
