Breast Cancer Survivor Stories – Write Your Own!
Breast cancer is something that can happen when you are so busy with many different things that you don’t realize it until it’s sometimes too late. Some people will feel no pain at all, which is sad because most breast cancer will have no pain and nothing showing until it is already too late.
Never think that you can’t get breast cancer, for anyone can get it, no matter your age or genetics, although that may play a part in it. For your own peace of mind it is better to get checked, then not to and then find out that you have breast cancer and that it has spread.
To discover and talk with someone who has successfully fought breast cancer all their lives, and are still surviving it is very heartening – whether it is someone you, yourself, or someone you know – the fight gives tremendous strength in times when making through it seems impossible. This strength will hold you up when people ridicule you, or mock at you for taking the cancer so seriously.
There are people who can not even think of handling something as gruesome as cancer, and it’s only natural. And not everyone you meet will sympathize with you, or share your grief, and if they did, only tears and mourning would prevail in the world. You will have to stand up alone, gather the courage to talk with doctors and know all there is to be known about the progress of your treatment. You have just one body, and you should do all you can to not let it go.
Your will is all it takes to overcome any force, even breast cancer, the survivors live to reaffirm that. You will feel scared sometimes, and that’s not a sign of weakness. Weakness will be if you feel piling up the fear and give up. Giving more stress to your already diseased body in the form of grief, fear, anger or dismay will worsen things for you. It is not a sin to be sad sometimes or to relieve yourself of worrying through angst – this is all a part of the healing process – just don’t let it get touch your core.
Diverting your attention from it will help you heal mentally and survive it. Your cancer is real, and that is ever so shocking, even months into it, but your purpose is to come out of it untouched. Look at the things that make you happy, do the things you love to do, throw your head back and laugh. You will forget the horrors of the disease and your family and friends will make sure that the disease fades day after day.
