what would you be feeeling???





Being diagnosed with cancer isn’t easy, and unless you have been in that situation its hard to understand. Imagine living your life, feeling a little ill and going to the doctor to see if you are sick. The doctor orders blood work and sends you to the lab. You have the routine bloodwork done and go home. Life goes back to normal and then the doctor calls you. You must go into the office to review your blood results. Nothing was said over the phone, so your mind starts to race. You start to have anxiety and wonder, what is happening? Why do I have to go in to have the results? Is it bad?  You get to the doctor’s office and they set you up in a room and you wait. The doctor walks in with his head hanging low and your stomach drops. He sits down in the chair next to you and says “I’m so sorry, you have cancer. We need to get you to an oncologist.” What is going through your mind?

How would you be feeling??

  1. Terror, plain and simple. That's how I felt upon my diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer, followed by an order for CT and bone scans. That was five years ago, and I'm in remission, but the terror never goes away completely. You just learn to adjust and breathe for the present moment, not think too far down the road. As my dad used to say, "Don't buy green bananas."
