Venting Again


I think sometimes I try too be to upbeat here, but over the past week I’ve been struggling.  I just had a good cry when I got on to my facebook account and was invited to join a facebook group for a little girl who is only 11 who has invasive ductal carinoma…..stage 2 breast cancer.  Here’s her website if you care to cry and pray with me.  Every where I turn it seems like someone is being diagnosed.  I’ll be honest, it gets really hard.   This disease is horrible. 

We’re now picking up the pieces, and we’re having to face finances as well.  I want to say it doesn’t matter.  My life is way more important than money, but the truth is, that most places don’t care and they like to make your life miserable.   If you get cancer and you are already struggling financially, you just might be screwed.  We think we’ll make it but I need to get back to work very soon since our student loans DO NOT CARE THAT I HAD CANCER!   Thanks for letting me vent…..lol!

Yes, but I have breasts that feel real.  Don’t look very real, but feel real.  And hey, I look great.  I should be able to snap right back don’t you think.  I’m all back together again…..it’s like nothing ever happened. 

I need to go to bed.

    Venting is called venting because if we don’t we might explode. I am also sickened by the idea that a little girl will have to endure what we did. Can’t tell me something’s not wrong with our environment. Anyway, thinking of you today 🙂 Hugs.

    I think we often forget when we walk around and see people that many of them have things going on that we don’t have any knowledge of. I was reminded while watching a video clip about a woman who has what my friend’s daughter’s have– Usher syndrome.

    Shem mentions in the clip how people have no idea as they pass by her that she is dealing with that.

    When we are out and about, it’s good to keep in mind that we often are passing people who are grieving, hurting or who knows what.

      It does take a while to put the pieces back together… and even when those pieces are back in place, you are never really the same. Emotionally the healing goes on and on. Just when you think you are over it, old fears and feelings seem to creep in. Breast cancer is a traumatic experience and sometimes it’s even more traumatic when you look back and think OMG, I can’t believe this!

      Keep healing my friend!!!
