Never prepared for this…
When I was diagnosed with Triple Stage Breast Cancer…My first thought was that I was going to die. This was before the staging not knowing how, why, when and what did I do to have this awful vicious complicated disease? Answers that would never be answered since my genetic testing came back with no mutated genes. Although cancer is on both sides of my family my parents passed on all good genes to me.
The findings were based on environmental factors not really knowing why or how I developed the most aggressive form of breast cancer. Now, I never really had the best of luck but now this! Whoa…I am healthy as an ox- but maybe this is a test…maybe God is using me to spread awareness. OK! I can do that…but to travel on this journey is not what I expected nor wanted. The positive side to it all- this journey will allow me to relate and communicate how imperative early detection or taking preventative measures to stop cancer in its tracks is! One thing I learned in my case is that stress and lack of Vitamin D helped open the door for cancer.
I lashed out at everyone close to me and this was not in my character. I wanted those that I believed loved me to care when they really never did. You really find out who is there for you in your darkest hours. Sadly some people will celebrate your demise because they are that evil. I will pray for them.
I have since come to grips after being diagnosed on June 4th, 2018 with State 2, Triple Stage breast cancer. Still, in disbelief, this has been a rough journey. But I must say the support received has been remarkable. I am so happy to have a fighting chance. My view on life has elevated to another level of thankfulness.
Every day is a blessing and reminds me that tomorrow is never promised.
I can only thank God that my husband stuck by me while my mood swings were in an uproar. My imagination began to run wild. As a result of chemotherapy all of my hair fell out and I begin to not feel pretty anymore. Hubby tells me I am beautiful and I believe him 🙂
The side effects of chemo are horrific…I can only plead with everyone that reads this post to make sure that you have your cancer screening yearly. We are so busy with LIFE that we neglect our health.
Ask for genetic testing to determine if you are at risk of developing cancer. Early detection is critical! My treatment is going well and I Praise God every single day for showing me mercy. I am so much stronger than I ever could have imagined.
