As a kid if somebody asked me what kind of a person I was, I would say an adventurous one! and I thought my life was pretty adventurous , until recently… life said to me, “Child, you haven’t been adventurous enough. Here, take cancer and be more adventurous”.
I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Tbh, I took the news quite casually as opposed to my family being overly emotional . I don’t know why it was so casual for me, may be I expected it to happen since my Aunt and uncle had it and I thought in my subconscious mind that I am going to get it . Yeah so life has definitely become more adventurous now 😀
Just got my bilateral mastectomy done as soon as I got the news and now in the recovery phase. Cannot explain to everyone how important it is to get yourself checked for any and everything regularly. Alhumdullilah , I caught the cancer at stage 1 but still have to go through a number of preventive treatments including chemotherapy and I am already shitting my pants 😀
It is so very important to stay positive through this whole ordeal . Could be for your family, friends, kids, parents but look for something that you would want to stay positive for. And you have to be selfish , it is ok to be selfish through this time. Take your time to heal . I am being very positive and have already agreed with Allah that all my sins are now cleansed 😀 and I am going straight to Jannat. hahahaha.
