The New Normal

Standard

Friday 28th February

Take advantage and do the important stuff, the rest will happen come what may.

The best way to fight this disease is to be alive for as long as I can.

No easy options, it is what it is. There are no answers.

There are always clinical trials. There should always be hope. Maybe one day this will be a chronic rather than a terminal disease once stage 4 is reached.

The Combi-Ad trial makes me believe I am doing something to help my outlook, my prognosis, my survivability chances.

The diagnosis changes your life ~ you have to adjust your priorities.

I may have cancer, but cancer doesn’t have me.

Cancer may leave my body, but it will never leave my life.

These are just some of the thoughts I have as I realise that this is the ‘new normal’ for me. There is no going back. Live with it. ‘Build a bridge, and get over it’.

Adjust.

Adapt.

Accept.
