When I got home I looked at my arm and it was red and swollen and the pain continued. I called my doctor and to make a very long story short, I was diagnosed with Lymphedema. This is a condition that was brought on by the procedures I went though during my cancer treatments. I had been warned this was a possibility, but had hoped that it wouldn’t happen.
Was I going to be able to cope with this? I started to search for something to grab onto because depression was trying to set in.
To be honest, I thought back to how I got through the cancer treatments. I knew that I needed to use the same technique I used then to pull myself up and move on.
It is so hard when you suffer a setback like this. You think that you are free and clear from serious illnesses and then there you are again.
For me the scripture, Psalm 139:13 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb,” was what I needed at the time. In this scripture King David is praying to God. It reminded me that God has been with me a long time and that He was with me now.
I hope my story help you to have something to grab onto when you need it.
Bless you all.
