What a Pain
The past week or so has been an absolute blur. One week I'm up and healthy, and the next week, I'm diagnosed with cancer. What a pain. Although I know I should feel the same - the cancer was simply picked up because of a health check I signed up for - I feel different. Tainted. I feel that my body (specifically my left breast) has been traitorous. And although I was doing double spin classes just last week, I suddenly feel frail. My world has changed, and although I do not want to be defined as a cancer victim, it is part - and will forever be a part - of who I am.
