I, also have a major illness besides cancer. I never thought the "health gods" would make me deal with cancer also. But I believe having a major illness first has helped me cope with my cancer diagnosis. I had already met my own mortality and everyday that I accomplished something that mattered to me, was a good day. And so it is with cancer. Cancer will probably kill me and I will even call that a great day when it happens. I wade through all the advice on how to manage my own illness. There are a lot of conspiracy theoreys out there. Though, I am a little hurt when friends dismiss my occaisional fear with a bible verse or advice. I am not looking for advice. I just want someone to hear me sometimes. I don't like the term survivor. We are all survivors of a day in a world filled with potholes and rainbows and if we can navigate those things in a day, we are all survivors. As the more my life shortens, the more And gratefullness is a good way of a mindfulness life. View Original Post
