The second cycle of chemo was for sure harder than the first... you really only start feeling the effects of it about 4 days into it and then it HITS YOU... But I knew this was coming and I am prepared for the fight. ( i just hope that it doesn't get worse and worse ...I still have a long way to go....) Impatience might become my worst enemy... and I am looking for ways to improve on that.
There is a fantastic book by a fantastic lady that I know called: "CANCER VIXEN" by Marisa Marchetto.www.cancervixen.com/ If you are at the book store... take a look.. you might even want to pick up a copy... GREAT ! Period!
A friend sent me this mantra below and I thought of it to be so great that I had to share... Thanks Larry!
The Amazon warrior has cut her hair in preparation of battle with the disgusting, low-life, parasitic scum – cancer. She advances to meet it head on and over power cancer with her confidence. Cancer withers in her presence as it fails to succeed in its use of fear and intimidation that it relies upon to overtake its victims. The Amazon warrior is unfazed by cancer’s futile attempts to frighten her. As she commences her assault, the cancer realizes that she has no fear of it and becomes panicked, retreating in a pathetic attempt to avoid humiliation. The retreat is futile as the warrior has no mercy for this scumbag, cancer, and she relentlessly pursues the invader. The nearer she gets the further the cancer retreats. Eventually, she overtakes the retreating villain, and finds that it has lost all of its power and has been reduced to a minuscule and powerless tiny creature. She lifts her booted foot and brings all her weight down in a tremendous stomp that squashes what remains of the cancer into oblivion.
Visualize it, live it, be it.
