We discuss the choices that come with having cancer and how we decided.
You have more choices than you think you do.
You can say no. Before you do, ask what the consequences are. Ask a lot of questions.
Don’t check out on making choices--check IN!
Try not to pop other people’s comforting bubbles. Go gently with information for others.
Know how YOU want to get information.
We are all lost in the woods and doing the best we can.
Stay out of the “what might have been” as much as you can. Don’t build your house there, and make your vacations there SHORT.
“I did the best I could with the information I had.”
Be aware of any guilt or shame you might have about the choices you make.
You have to be aware of your animal instincts to run. Choose to chooose.
Take time off if you can take time off.
