I know the collective ‘you’ mean very well indeed. But PURLEEEEEASE stop telling me I haven’t accepted this/I’m in denial/it hasn’t sunk in yet.
I’m quite a switched on cookie and I get it. I know what’s coming as much as I possibly can and I have accepted it. Of course I don’t know how it feels mentally or physically to go through chemo/op/radio but then frankly unless you’ve been through it, no one does. And even if you’ve been through it – your experience and mine will be very different. The beauty of this life is that we are all individuals.
You don’t choose to get cancer. But you can choose your attitude towards it. And I have.
