Prompt #3: "Health Disorder"

Skin Deep [Full]Skin Deep
Introducing Doctor Hugo Raines, Dermatologist

When I again encountered my former medical school colleague, Hugo Raines, he was very preoccupied in his small clinical laboratory. Throughout our acquaintance, Raines was a brilliant and determined dermatologist. Many of his discoveries had been quickly acknowledged and accepted by both his calling and by medicals in general. Then, he informed me that he desired to discover the secret to revitalize dead ad diseased skin. I was not taken aback by his words. He had a valid reason to investigate. Rather, I agreed readily that it was a brilliant and much needed skill.
"You see, Philip, the idea occurred to me only last year when my wife of three years, Sophie, suddenly contracted a strange skin disease that..that made her skin look..cadaverous."
That made me jump. I stared both in shock and in sympathy.
"Indeed. Sophie was quite sad at the effect. I vowed to find the method to revitalize her skin."

Disorder"What do you do?
Can somebody tell me how to make this end?
What do you do when you mind is flooded with these cancerous thoughts,
Spreading through your brain, spawning more like them, crushing to death all sense of rational and coherent thought.
What have I become?
Where did my life go?
How do I get back all that I have lost?"
I can't do it! If you entertain these thoughts you only fall faster.
Down into the void where all your dreams have fallen before.
Rise up!
Your desperate fight against madness is only driving you to madness!
Can't you see?
You have lost nothing.
You have only changed, you've grown.
Do not stagnate and hold to your romanticized thoughts of the past,
For you are only wasting the present!"
"I can't help it.
Everything is different, nothing is right.
And I just want to sleep.
Don't make me face today.
Just give me till tomorrow.
Maybe ill figure it out then.
Please. I just need to rest.
I'm so exhausted.
It would feel so nice to just let go.
I think I'm just a

Am I allowed to submit something with a Moderate Mature Content filter on? I didn't see any pieces in here with filters so I wasn't sure whether PG-13 or R rated literature was tolerated here.
Michel-le-fou Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013  Professional Writer
Yes, I believe we have a Mature Content folder but submit according to genre. Contact me if you have problems.
