Numbness spreads through you, and your brain is in hyperdrive. It seems there are more questions than answers. Your world suddenly has changed and everything you knew or thought you knew, no longer seems real. Those two words might make the ground under your feet shift, but it doesn’t have to stop you in your tracks.
Cancer is cancer, and you’re still you!
Fear and vulnerability may join you on your journey. They visited me often after my diagnosis of cancer. Facing those two opponents, at times, felt more formidable than my cancer. Resisting the fear and pushing the vulnerability aside, served only to keep them nudging at me until it became a shove I couldn’t ignore.
What we resist, persists!
