Staying present is a must!
Staying present is not always easy, it has to be a conscience effort on your part. As a cancer patient or survivor, you have been on a physical & emotional roller coaster. I did not want to join a support group, but I did find 2 people to talk with. These women had completely different experiences with breast cancer. Talking with them has helped me process this journey.
We all know someone who has or had breast cancer. Finding people to relate to makes the roller coaster ride manageable. It still sucks, but you know you’ll get through it.
Do whatever it takes to stay present!
After chemo and radiation I thought I was done with treatments and that my life would be “normal” again. Well I was wrong. Wrong about being done and wrong about life being normal. I still had to go through hormone therapy and figure out my “new normal”.
During chemo and radiation I just put my head down and focused on staying healthy.
Now, I am leaning how to manage the side effects of hormone therapy, processing the emotions of being a cancer survivor at 31 and focusing on rebuilding my business.
This is the only advice I can offer you…Focus on the day and visit your goals often.
