Samira Rajabi

Samira Rajabi was diagnosed with a vestibular schwannoma, also known as an acoustic neuroma in 2012. She has had ten surgeries to deal with her tumor and its various side effects. She writes a blog about her life, surgeries, recovery and experiences at LivingWithHerbert.com. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, where she studies media studies. In her spare time she plays with her two pups and spends time with her husband exploring Philadelphia.

When our bodies have experienced trauma, it is so easy to live in fear of what else may go wrong. But accepting that we don't know what will happen to us also means accepting that the worst is not always inevitable. Sometimes, despite our fears, we still thrive, and that is a reason to recognize that even if you've suffered, you can still be OK.
Samira Rajabi
Those of us who have suffered often fear what can go wrong with them. But the more we know our bodies, the more we can love them and ourselves.

Every six months, I get an MRI to check for recurrence or growth of my brain tumor. This is one of those times. To prepare for tomorrow, I try to remember not to forgo today.

Moving with a health problem comes with the logistical challenge of finding resources in a new place which is a task conquered through patience, kindness and a lot of organization.

There are so many ideas of what it is to be strong, but what if strength lies in being honest, being vulnerable and being ourselves?
Samira Rajabi
We all deal with pain. For some of us, it is chronic, but we can't give up. Pain can be a tricky partner to walk along side and is different for everyone. For me, I must face it. I must try to heal it, and I must try to take steps forward, no matter how tiny they may be.
Samira Rajabi
It can be hard to name our fears, especially when we are worried that others don't share them or that they will make us feel like a part of our community. In sharing, we can name stressors, activate healing from those stressors and give our bodies a chance to cope with all that has happened to us.
Samira Rajabi
Recovery is an up-and-down process, and it's okay to show yourself compassion through the ups and the downs.
Samira Rajabi
After any kind of health trauma, even the good news comes with an air of skepticism, caution and even fear. That said, there's a reason to celebrate any day we get to live and argue in favor of faith and hope, not fear.
Samira Rajabi
Sometimes it seems like being heroic after you get sick is expected of you. To me, putting goodness into the world, in sickness or in health, is what makes heroes.
