A great (and highly relate-able) post from Phillipa at Feisty Blue Gecko 🙂
There are so many different ways of handling a cancer diagnosis. There are more ways than there are people who have or have had cancer, in my view. As each one of is individual, each approach is unique. It might be similar to many others, but it is essentially unique. Why more ways than people? Because this varies even within ourselves. Much depends on where we are in the cancer experience. In the three years eight months and 22 days since I learned I had cancer, I have veered between the “WTF – Cancer??” to “warrior” to “cancer rebel” to “advocate and activist” to “inspiration” and many more. Each is valid to the individual and to where they are in the experience. What is not valid is suggesting that one approach is right and another wrong – each must be respected even if it very different to our own approach.
