For those of you who don’t know.... 10 rounds is a lot of chemo.
Two more left.
I approach it with both anticipation and anxiety. Trying to learn to take it day by day.
Recurrence is a real thing. Scanxiety is a real thing. Learning to live as a survivor is another hurdle to climb.... not make any easier by my Enneagram 6 personality.
Things I’m doing to prepare myself:
Setting up counseling again
Getting a tattoo to mark this journey
Lectio Divina and Quiet Time
Reaching out to others survivors
Not googling worst case scenarios
Planning a celebration dinner with my family
Going to Disneyland as soon as it’s available
Giving myself time and space to recover and not pushing myself
Continue taking meds for anxiety
