Life is terminal. So maybe the right question is not "can I survive this?" but "how much life can I embrace?" Some of us will get to NED and stay there for the rest of our lives; some of us won't. All I know is life didn't stop after my stage IIIa diagnosis in 2001, and it didn't stop after my stage IV recurrence last year. Since 2001, I've…
raised a puppy…done my job…planted flowers…gotten divorced…gone running in the rain…made new friends….fallen in love…gotten married…done the laundry…raced an Ironman triathlon…learned how to fix a flat tire…become an auntie…made dinner…made quilts…made a mess…LIVED.
Is that positive enough for you?
Monica, it's OK to feel scared. It's OK to wonder why the hell this is happening to you. I've done plenty of each. And when you're done, it's also OK to just be you, living your life, loving the people you love.
