everything is benign

After taking the last few weeks off, it has made me come to a few realizations about my life. First and foremost, I’ve never been so scared before about a health diagnosis and the worry that goes along with the anticipation, is truly the hardest part to control.  After going through 12 blood tests and a biopsy, my results thankfully came back last week benign.  Although the doctors still are unsure as to why my white blood cells are still so high and I’m on so many different medications to level out my system, I’m happy to be alive.

This scare has helped me towards accomplishing some life goals of going back to college starting Monday, moving to a new city in the Fall and most importantly, learning to take care of myself to become healthier than ever. Thank you with all my heart to those that left such kind comments, emails, wishes and support – it truly meant the world to me and gave me strength at a time when I really felt so alone.

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
