Dear Nurse Monica, I Don’t Forgive You and I’m OK With That

Dear Nurse Monica,

2010, Royal Columbian Hospital, fifth floor, night shift. Remember? I was the bed-confined patient with the acquired brain injury who had just come from the critical care unit (CCU) for the third time. I was the patient who you felt was demanding and ungrateful, who rang the call bell too many times, who was a pain in your ass and needed to be disciplined. You probably don’t remember me, after 10 years. That actually kinda pisses me off, because I sure remember you. In fact, I can’t forget you. I can’t forget your abuse and how small and vulnerable and frightened I felt under your “care.” You still occasionally show up in my nightmares, and flashbacks of your cruelty continue to punctuate my life.

I’m supposed to forgive
