Here are some things that I wish someone had shared with me while I was going through breast cancer.
No one, and I'm talking no one, knows how to behave with cancer. There is no training manual that tells you how to deal with this new level of fear. (Your emotions are running high, right off the charts.)
If no one can say anything right, it's normal (). I once said to someone very close, “It's not that you are doing anything wrong, it's that you are not doing anything right.” I really didn't know what “right” was. What was right to say or do to me on Tuesday was entirely different than on Thursday.
You can have as many individual passes as you need, and there is no expiration date, but never can you shut down & shut everyone out for more than 3 days.
