Ups and Downs: Dealing with your emotions.

Ups and Downs

The Canadian Cancer Society points out, that both the patient and his/her family can, and most likely will go through a series of emotions which can including: shock, fear, denial, anger, guilt, anxiety/stress, loneliness/isolation, sadness, depression and hope. I must say that I have experienced most of these emotions over the last few months.

Such truth! I've been through and still am going through much of those mostly sadness and anger lately. Sometimes I think this has been harder in some ways for my Partner who had to put his life on hold to be there for me and has kept feelings in to stay strong for me.

My Michelle

The most important person in my life, my Michelle.

I'm sure that she will try to persuade me not to publish this post but I must publish it for all to read. It is important for me to share how much it means to me to have her in my life, to have her always by my side and how much I love her.  Michelle has been there for me for all the important milestone in my life. We live our lives together, taking each step in the journey as one. I could not have asked for a better partner during this new uncharted path that we are on together.

I honestly do not know how I could navigate this journey without her help.  Without her being apart of every step of this cancer journey. We are life partners and have stood beside each other for thirty-three years now. She is my soul mate.

Michele is wonderful. She may not relish the recognition but she needs it. Her journey is difficult. I know this first hand as I cared for my husband for 3 years as he battled pancreatic cancer. You don't sleep well, you don't eat well, you don't think of yourself, I couldn't read a book or socialize much. She wants to get this right all for you. You are very lucky to have her and she to have you. You have an intimate bond that will remain with both off you through eternity. You are spot on! My thoughts and prayers will be with both of you.


BTW, an in-law of ours battled esophagus caner and beat it. He has been cancer free for so long he doesn't even need a recheck. This cancer is beatable.
