Since being diagnosed with cancer, the most popular saying I’ve heard is ” I don’t know how you do it.. ” I usually smile and change subjects. I get that until your in these shoes you may not fully understand but this is my mindset.. I am doing it because I have to, it can be life or death so quickly. Nobody after a diagnosis is just going to give up, we may have our moments in denial and grief; but you push to the side and realize what it is happening and you just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and dang it, you refuse to let it get to you. You prepare for the worse and pray for the best. You push yourself. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. No matter what side effects have happened or what you have lost; you fought for this life now live it. That’s how it’s done it. There’s no other way.
