Do they wonder?

You know there are days where if I haven't moved in a while and my breathing feels completely normal, or what I assume normal feels like as I don't actually have anything to compare it to, I wonder what it must be like to be like that all of the time. What must life be like to be normal? 

Do normal people ever wonder what it must be like for us? Those of us who go to hospital all of the time. Spend hours in waiting rooms. Hours on hospital beds. Have given more blood than we can even believe. Had more procedures than we care to count. 

Do they wonder what it must be like to rely on a source of extra oxygen so that you are not in constant pain struggling to breathe? 

Do they wonder what it is like to take more medication than I care to admit? To have to be better than a nurse at your own medications because you cannot rely on anybody to be in control of your lifeline. 

Do they wonder what it is like to be in limbo? To be unable to move from where you are in your life?

It's weird because I know I wonder constantly what it must be like to be normal, to breathe, to only ever make a doctors appointment every now and then, to not have to remember to take medications or making them up in a sterile environment, to not have to be reliant on a machine, on extra oxygen to just be able to exist. 

I just wonder, do they wonder like I do?
