My life has been altered without my permission. I have to admit I dropped multiple "F-bombs" during the past week. This is just truly ridiculous and pisses me off in a huge way. How can one so on top of things be experiencing this?
Tomorrow is day 5 of my brain radiation treatment but because it's only been a week, I continue to come to grasps with the entire situation and, truthfully, who knows if I ever will completely. THIS IS CRAZY!
Because I now have MC, I am forced to become a "Manager". Yes, I'll fight, but I also have to come to the conclusion that I have to manage the nonsense; it plans on sticking around. Personally, I hope it hates my body and jumps ship. I've already had enough.
The immense support during this nightmare is one of the many blessings. I am loved, and there truly is no greater gift, and no greater motivator to get me to do this.
It's often hard for me to believe that I can do this, but with the multitude of encouragement, support and love, I will.
And story #2:
From the cousin of my BFF
"I have been living with metastatic breast cancer (in my liver) for 6.5 years!!! I was stage iv from day one. I am working, finished my Phd 2 years ago, married, love being an aunt, and trying to enjoy every day!! Of course there are bad days, but I try to focus on the good days. Support around me is key and you have that!!"
Thank you Kristen for sharing...you are my inspiration!
