So sorry to hear you have cancer. That's truly rough. Wouldn't be able to cope with that myself. I had a stroke and left paralysed on one side. I
thought I would never be able to deal with something like that but I am doing better than I thought I would. Got used to only having one hand to use
and not walking, I'm not dying from it though. So not the same at all. After that I broke my hip, which was a huge setback to my recovery, then I
somehow mustered up the strength to divorce my husband of 30 yrs. he wasn't helping me much and made it very clear he was too good to be with a girl
in a wheelchair. I went through even worse depression through the divorce, but am doing so much better now.
Somehow we get through things.
The movies really helped me. It takes my mind off the thinking ritual. All I did was cry. Now i hardly cry. Yesterday I haad my first shower where
I didn't do the thinking thing about all my woes. I was laughing at some movie clips I'd just watched on YouTube of Jim Carey in cable guy. Comedy
helps, if you like comedy.
Of course the best thing is to be around others who support you, like family and good friends, if you have that. The best gift someone can give you is
Hope you can find ways to cope with this.
