    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    Just saying your emotional state is essential to your treatment. Stay positive. Surround yourself with positive people, thoughts and things. I was blessed with all that. It was hard to bring my family along. But if they cannot get on the positive bus then leave them at the station and drive off. Seriously! Your family will always be there so take a trip on the positive side. It will make the journey so much better. This road is rocky enough but being able to smile at the bumps with help you whip this beast or at least make his job harder to tackle you.
