Which Magazine Should I Read?
These 3 magazines were sitting on the table the other day. My eyes were drawn to the images of the elephant and my favorite cathedral. I found myself pushing the "Cure" magazine away from me. I hate it when that cancer related magazine comes each month. Why do I need to be reminded of cancer? Do I really need to think about it?
Yes I do. I'm supposed to have learned something from all this. I can't forget about all the things I can do to help prevent my cancer from recurring... from proper meds, to exercise and diet.
So I opened that magazine and I actually read a couple of articles. It wasn't torture. I learned a few things. I gave myself some time to NOT ignore cancer... which is what I like to do. And most of all, I was reminded to check in on the few people in my life who are dealing with cancer worries right now. That felt good to connect and offer a little support from afar. I'll never forget how good those surprise connections felt to me 18 months ago.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
