I Am ...
When you're in the midst of the initial chaos that a cancer diagnosis brings, you may suddenly feel detached from your body. There were times when a whole day would pass, I'd climb into bed at night and wonder if the day had even happened. I was on auto-pilot and trudged through each day like a soldier, fighting to survive.
A few weeks later, I realized I needed to get a grip and re-group. I forgot that my body, mind and spirit were connected. I knew that I had a choice to make - either fight or flee. I've never been a quitter, so it was an easy choice for me. Once I made that mental shift in my thinking, I got my mojo back. My love and zest for life. I discovered strength that I never knew I had before. You are NOT the label of C-A-N-C-E-R ... you are a special person who is strong, loving, and caring. Someone who WILL get through this!
