Cancer

If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

Thanks G Cat and Joan.  Could hardly see most of them for the tears.  My favorite uses a quote from one of my favorite movies:

Thanks to Joan for sharing this in another A|N group; it belongs here too!

Sorry to hear that Patricia!  It's one of the things I don't have trouble with. 

Have to have a Hysteroscopy done in a week or two.  It's like a D & C, but they use a camera, and they are going to snip out a polyp and test it to make sure it's benign.  Also I have fibroids.  Heavy bleeding the last two periods.  Ugh.  At least it's outpatient and my family has to wait on me for 24 hours. lol.

If I don't get a good night's sleep, I'm toast!  I have to take a nap!  A lot of times I think I am just lazy.  I'm just not a go-getter!  It's such a feeling of accomplishment for me when I do a ton of things on my list in a day. ;)

LOL, wonderful idea!

My energy window is at best 4 or 5 hours, so I'm lucky there. How about a sloth party in a sunny beechwood? We'll hang in the trees, watch the light on the leaves and feel good while doing nothing. I'll bring some food.

A ha! the pacemaker is for me too!

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 2, 2014 at 7:19pm

Daniel, just to set the frame, here is a thought for the day in the form of a photo, to relax, enjoy the resting time, and know your body is working, even if you are not. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 2, 2014 at 7:00pm

Patricia, you have guided me well on my cancer challenge, and your experience of having a 2 hour window seems to be true for me as well. We grocery shop once a week and I come home exhausted. I have the privilege to nap for the remainder of the day, and not everyone can do that.

 

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 2, 2014 at 12:19pm

Sorry to hear your energy is down Daniel.  

Like Chris, I'd like to think the tree sloth leads a satisfying life, and I think someone did it a disservice by calling it a sloth.

We probably couldn't be happy being a sloth all the time, but to everything there is a season.
