    I am having a hard thime this week, I am struggling with the "why me" part of this XXX cancer. My life has been stripped down to doctors, treatments, and feeling like crap! I hope you all are doing better than me.

      The rigors of cancer treatment get to all of us. Daily radiation. Chemo and just when you start to feel better, it's time to have more chemo. I hope that you'll feel better soon. Just remember - nothing bad lasts forever.

    I have found this to be true! I think about happy times, my loved ones, good times we have had together and the plans we have to go places and do things we love. Keep my mind on the good and off of the bad. I think I heard that here first, it works for me!

      I also try to follow that line of thinking. Sometimes it is what you make it.

    Every time I hear someone complaining about some trivial thing and making drama over nothing, I tell them this.

      Most people change through the years, adjusting to the changes around them. You are the same person who graduated from high school.

      You'll get through this, and then say to yourself, "Gee, I made it." And now, what next?

      You may appreciate the smaller things of life you took for granted. You may spend more time with your family. Or you might just go back to the daily grind. Our lives are what we make them.

      I hope that you'll find peace of mind as you begin treatment.

      Cancer IS NOT you! It doesn’t define who or what you are. You are still you. I look at it as an inconvenience, a nagging pain in my posterior sometimes, but not the essence of me. My values haven’t changed, my likes and dislikes, the people I love, my favorite things, my intellect, my stupidity and a plethora of other things that make up me. It is an illness that I must deal with, just like death and taxes. It will only redefine you if you become the disease, let it consume you and your life. Do I have limitations, sure, but I have some from my other health problems also. I only let positives in and put positivity out, keep my sense of humor and my religious faith close at hand. Depression and stress can kill you, why give cancer a helping hand? Every day I wake up is a good day, at that point I consider the rest of the day a major plus!

    I have a good day every day. Only some are better than others, some are GREAT, and some suck, but there are still things in them that are good.
