Having cancer has made me less fearful. I’m engaging in life in ways I wasn’t before I had cancer. When I have an opinion, I voice it. I used to avoid situations I as afraid of, like speaking to crowds or flying in airplanes. I still feel anxious in these situations, but now I take that step forward instead of stepping backward from them. Don’t get me wrong here, I am not an adrenalin junkie, I am just able to live my life without all the personal restrictions I’d placed on myself before I got cancer.
hello, finding out I had cancer, I didn’t cry, or get sad, what was my alternative. I am a 60 yr. old mom of 3 grown kids and 4 grandkids and a wonderful hubby of 34 yrs.
But after having time to think what has it done for me: Re-examine my priorities. I was a caregiver for children, infants and the elderly for years, now it is time for me to take care of me, so I can still care for my wonderful, supportive family.
my mom always said, there is always someone else worse off. And she was so wise. God bless you all on your journey.
