Priscilla Westaway Me and my thoughts

First post: Mar 31, 2016 Latest post: May 8, 2016
My story on December 12, 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. On that day I was with Mark and the nurse practitioner clearly said to me if I did not think it I would not tell you. My life became a world wind and as you read my journal you will see the world wind it is.

Upon this journey since I just started I've discovered if there's one thing I will change before I meet my maker is to teach doctors and people who work in hospitals and facilities in regards to people's house not to be complacent to remember the faces are not the diagnosis

that we are human and it's not our identity. I have also learned that my diagnosis has become my evil twin sister and that if I do not take care of my evil twin sister she will bite me in the ass and reminded me that she's there. So I have learned already but if I'm tired dragged out whatever it is to just go with it because I do not want to get sicker. As I said before it takes a village for cancer it's not about one person it's the entire village. I am very blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family and the love of my life to stand there by my side to support me. I know what times they will not understand how I am feeling and why I feel the way I do. So I've discovered this place and I can journal and I have to say just within the last hour maybe and a half I feel so much better just getting things off my chest. So each day I'm going to make a commitment to myself and I will write a note in my journal to let it out whether it's good it's bad positive negative I feel that this will really help.
