If you’ve recently received a breast cancer diagnosis then I think I might know a bit about where you’re coming from.
One minute you’re living your life as you do, working, hanging out with family and friends, cooking, laughing, running errands and then next minute you’re sitting in shock in the doctor’s office after hearing “you’ve got breast cancer”.
I don’t think you ever thought you’d see the day when you’d be running searches on
“how to cure breast cancer”, “best treatment for breast cancer” and “how to stop cancer from spreading”; especially not for you.
You’re typing the words even though you’re completely numb to them.
How can this be?
You don’t feel sick. You don’t look sick.
Yet your life has just been turned upside-down and you can’t think of anything else. Medical terms like oncology, HER-2, mastectomy, radiation and hormone therapy have hijacked your mind and come with massive decisions attached.
You’ve left the hospital with little direction and on top of your busy life, now you’ve got this devastating, colossal diagnosis to figure out.
I know you’re trying very hard to work through this on your own being the rock and the lifeline of the household that you’ve always been.
You’re keeping it together for everyone around you but you feel like you’re losing control as all the what-ifs going through your head gain momentum.
This is a really hard time for you.
You’re trying to figure out the best road to recovery while dealing with a rollercoaster of emotions and the uncertainty is so scary.
You just want it all to go away so you can go back to living your life as you were. It’s so unfair and it shouldn’t be happening to you and I’m so sorry that it is.
