Why me? Why not you darling? Why should it be anyone.
This shit is unfair. This shit is tough. There are times you’ll want to retreat into a shell and shut out the world. No one understands.
And that’s ok. Let it happen. Feel all the feelings.
Just be sure to attach a little life raft before you let yourself sink.
Because as much as a cancer diagnosis is a bereavement, staying in this space for too long won’t get you far, so figure out how to help yourself.
Start small by finding things you have control over – what you eat that day, what you watch, who you see, what you wear. Bit by bit, you’ll realise the real power rests with you. And bit by bit you’ll find your way through, on your terms.
