I did a post last Valentine’s Day about the state of my heart not too long after my breast cancer surgery. I figured it might be good to do an update a year later and post cancer.
Those first few months were agonizing and long. I wanted to die rather than face this battle. I cried many tears. I know it was hard for those closest to me. I shut people out and buried myself from the world.
While it was probably the lowest point in my life, I can look back on that time, and see that it wasn’t the end of the world like I thought it was at the time. It was a very difficult, intense time but in the end, I think I’m better for it. If I had a choice, I would not choose this path; but, it is my path and from it, I’ve learned that I can get through just about anything now.
