Woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend... Just when I thought life could not get any better I heard a knock on my door, it was Cancer.
It changed everything but not for the worse. I choose Life and Hope .
BACK OFF CANCER is what I say!

Fear is an emotional response to tangible and realistic dangers. Fear should be distinguished from anxiety, an emotion that often arises out of proportion to the actual threat or danger involved, and can be subjectively experienced without any specific attention to the threatening object. [1][2]

Most fear is usually connected to pain (i.e., some fear heights because if they fall, they may suffer severe injury upon landing). Behavioral theorists, like Watson and Ekman, have both suggested that fear is one of several very basic emotions (e.g., joy and anger). Fear is a survival mechanism, and usually occurs in response to a specific negative stimulus

Before C. .. I was not afraid of much... OK. .I was not going to go bungee jumping but I did not fear LIFE... if there is one thing that I hate that C. did to me is to introduce me to FEAR... I hate C and I hate FEAR ... so

I hope that your fear for life will eventually disappear. I think about you a lot, about how strong you are. You will prevail. Love, Maartje
