Calling out for your input! Serious request!

Ok, everybody, I’ve got a serious question – it’s for research. Please either answer here or private message me.

My question: If you could experience a time in your life where you feel you were at a crossroads and either made the wrong decision or wonder what the outcome would have been by making the other decision, what would that decision/experience be?

For instance: You had the opportunity to go on a date with someone that for whatever reason you didn’t go but have always wondered what might have happened. OR The job you didn’t take (or did) and things didn’t turn out like you’d hoped. Maybe you wished you had gone to prom.  Maybe you think if you hadn’t done one thing in whatever situation then someone else might not have been hurt/promoted above you/whatever. That sort of thing. Whatever it might be, if you think it’s silly or not, I’m interested in everyone’s honest thought, idea, or choice on this subject.  I would also appreciate it if you could let me know if you are male or female – important for the research.

The opportunity to experience the “road not chosen” would not in any way affect your current life when you “awoke” from said experience – no butterfly effect – it’s just a way of seeing what might have been. I would very much like to know everyone’s choices. You do not have to be descriptive or go into heavy detail – just the what and why of it would be greatly appreciated and extremely helpful.

Thanks!

  1. I would have to choose January 2010 when my 2 month old son was diagnosed with the worst brain tumor, known as ATRT , and it only strikes children 2 years and under, and we went through with the
    months of surgery and spinal tapping weekly, excruciating pain and a HUGE I.v. pole FULL of so many kinds of chemotherapy drugs, the side effects STILL give me AND my husband night terrors, NO infant should endure what our son, Slade did. I would change it to NO surgery, OR spinal tapping, chemotherapy, nothing! I KNEW IN MY HEAD AND HEART that my son was not going to survive, but both our families were YELLING and pleading with us to give the treatment a chance!! I would go back, not answer the phone, tell the nurses no visitors, and have the Dr. Just make Our son comfortable until his death. That WAS the choice I wanted in 2010, but not what happened, and on April 12th 2010, Slade died of a painful infection from his last brain surgery a week earlier. He was going to die from the cancer so that’s what they wrote on his death certificate. He wasn’t even 6 months old when he died , and SO much pain and suffering his short life. I’m fine with talking about my son if you have a Question, most people don’t know about the common children cancer and tumor much less the EXTREMELY RARE ONES , like our Slade had. He would’ve been 6 years old today, October 16th 2009 is his birthday.

    • You are a brave woman and I’m so very sorry for your loss. If words could heal your heart and son, I would type until my fingers bled. Thank you for your input and I will honor you and your son in my book.
