2 ½ yrs later…
Interestingly enough...survivorship doesn't follow a check list either. Most days, cancer is tucked away in a nice little corner of my mind. That is until I hear of someone having a recurrence, admitted to hospice, or passed away. Along with grieving for the individuals, those days I find myself asking, “Why Me?” Why am I the lucky one? Sure, I still struggle with some painful side effects from the grueling treatment, but how come I am so blessed to not have cancer return, at least not yet?
Some things still don’t make sense, but one thing that does make sense is that I can say with confidence, “Thank you God for walking with me through cancer, because without You, I would have never discovered some very beautiful truths.”
Question of the day: If you are a survivor, have you ever experienced survivor’s guilt? If so, do you have any tips to share?
