A Look Back...

A Look Back....

 

 
      As 2012 comes to a close, it is a time for reflection.  As a cancer patient, you may be riddled with thoughts of the past few months or years and wonder what the future holds.  I've spoken with many survivors who suffer from "anniversary" post traumatic stress syndrome. I am one of them.  When certain months roll around, my mind plays tricks on me and "reminds" me of what took place during those times.  It is stressful, but it helps to know I'm not alone - misery loves company!
As you will read in my book, there were other events that took place around the time of my diagnosis.  When I look back, I honestly don't know how I survived those troubling times.  They say, "Time heals all wounds" and, in a way, it has.  Do I still have the monkey brain thoughts and emotions play out?  Yes, sometimes I do.  But.....
We are all survivors on our own paths with the commonality of cancer.  It won't be an easy road, but we have to keep forging ahead.  Hopefully someday we'll be able to look back and say, "WOW!  I've come a loooong way and look at me now!"  That is my wish for us all in 2013!
 
Sending you lots of love,  peace, strength and light!
Always~
Jodi
