What a weekend! I finally felt human and could almost taste my food, for me I say that is fantastic!! We were so busy being a family this weekend that I almost forgot about cancer, almost.
It is such a treat these days to feel good that you forget to slow down. I have packed this week so full because next week I go back for an infusion, and need to remind myself to chill. It actually isn’t that hard to remind myself because I fall asleep sitting up around 3pm. Anyway, it was a great weekend all around. We rested, I actually went in the pool, Zack relaxed and we saw some friends. Goodness all around.
On another note, I was introduced to Brene Brown today by my therapist. She is awesome (so is my therapist). See, when you have cancer, it is REALLY important to see one. There is a LOT to talk about. But anyway, she showed me this video that I am including today. It talks about EMPATHY vs. SYMPATHY. If you know me and read this often, you know that I HATE sympathy. I don’t want your pity either. There is such truth to the difference between the two, and I have never resonated more with anything.
When people found out about my cancer, people reacted differently as expected. With the exception of the few that I expected, and the few that surprised me, most of you have shown me empathy. Thanks for that!!
Please watch this video below, it is really eye-opening and inspiring.
