I must be about 3/4 of the way into this cancer journey now. With only the Rx leg left, tonight feels like a good time for a mid-term assessment.
I remember starting this journey in Jan/Feb this year with at times frantic, panicky emotions and at other times romantic fantasy-filled notions of how I will handle it all.
So how has it been?
It is no walk in the park people. It is not fun. It is not easy. It is not terrible. It is just long and tiring.
But! Yes, there is a but! This is one fascinating life-changing journey. It is doing what any calamity does to a soul: it gives it a new life.
I could go into the one thousand and one ways of how I am a "changed" person, but that would require too much typing. So I will take one example only.
I, Shafeenaaz, have come to like people :)
Yes, my allergy to homo sapiens has disappeared! It may have taken me over 35 years, but finally, finally, I am learning to appreciate the power of human life. Every SINGLE human life.
And for that, I am grateful to the One who is The Witness. :)
