I decided to write my breast cancer journey to face my deepest pain and turn it around. I usually keep my emotions to myself, but I am at the point where I must let them out before they destroy me. When I look at my body in the mirror it is not me I see and I didn’t know if I would ever find the old me again. I thought if I embraced my cancer I would be given it permission to destroy me and I was wrong. My cancer tried to break me into million pieces so that I could not find myself. I can’t even begin to describe my pain and there are no words that do it justice. I do not want my pain to dictate my future anymore.
Therefore, I am now learning to accept the new me and be comfortable in my own skin. I had a long hard road ahead of me and I have no answers, no answer at all, but I can tell you this. I believe you cannot take from me what I do not want you to have. And I will continue to fight for me with everything I have within me.
