I want off this roller coaster.

Here I am staring at a blank screen wondering what to type or where to start. Let’s start simple. My name is Sarah and I’m 31 years old. I am a daughter, mother, wife, sister, aunt, cousin, granddaughter, niece, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, co-worker, and friend. Oh wait! You can add Cholangiocarcinoma warrior and/or survivor.
