she had run. The biopsies said that I was positive for breast cancer. I was sitting on the end of my bed when I heard the news.
It wasn’t like in the movies with screaming and crying. I didn’t even feel scared. I was numb and truthfully, now that I look back, I was in denial. I didn’t realize it at the time of course. It really didn’t hit me until later. It felt like, ok now what? It was very weird. It felt as if it was happening to someone else, not me. After all no one in my family had ever had breast cancer.
What would of happened if I had not pushed forward? Being in a state of denial can cause you to not seek necessary treatment. There are people who would stay in
that state and perish.
If you are a person who is facing a big challenge like a major illness, or if you
know someone who is, do whatever you need to do to get through the stage of denial. The cost of doing nothing could be fatal. It is very important that you have someone close to you go with you to your appointments to help you remember what you need to do and when you need to do it.
God bless you as you do what you need to do.
