Keeping Busy

I find myself having a much easier time with everything 'cancer' when I'm busy. It a classic coping mechanism - swamp yourself with work, etc. so there is no time to think about what is wrong. So far, it's working for me.

Since being diagnosed, I have been going through cycles. I have a period of extreme joy, following that I am just neutral, and then I'll have down time and the hardships will hit.

Its when I sit around and think about my entire journey that I seem to get depressed. Why do I do this to myself? Luckily though, each down cycle is less severe each time. I take everything in stride and work through it.

Life is peculiar the way it works. I'm finding this out more and more each day.

Hopefully the next post will have more substance. There just isn't much cancer related on my mind tonight.

A Sign that I'm Healing

Direct quote from one of my recent conversations:

“I’m not afraid of what I don’t know because that is completely irrational to do so. Life is gonna throw things at me and I’m gonna deal with them. Then i’ll die one day, and thats life. Its how I choose to deal with those things that matters, not what I’m dealing with.”

I'm definitely healing and growing wiser.
