Learning To Accept Realities and Laugh A Little More

Two months since I found out about the cancer in my body,  I try to enforce a change in my lifestyle.Nothing swiftly radical: just a change of pace, actually a slow-down in the work place, less crowds,  more quiet time, more veggies in each meal, fruits each day, Zumba even right after the once-a-week chemo treatment, and the hardest part,  learning to avoid stress and trying to sleep before midnight.A  few well-meaning friends are warmer now, sending me prayers, fruits, positive vibes.Some…See More

Seeking What It Means To Have Breast Cancer

With chemotherapy now underway, and surgery forthcoming when the 6cm tumor shrinks,and while the nagging scientific hows and medical wherefores are momentarily silenced, I turn inward to find answers to why cancer did happen.... To me.
