Keeping Me On Track

Today I met with my psychologist at the Cancer Institute. We talked about how ... mentally I was feeling better. We thought it might be that the 'shock' of my diagnosis wearing out. I'm hoping that is the case but just a reminder ... the chemo drugs sure do play havoc with you mentally so it may be short lived. Anyways, my psychologist does a great job keeping me on track.

Speaking of keeping me on track ... I have so many other people who help keep in on track and so many people who offer me support. I just wanted to say thank you ...
  • thank you to my husband and to family for their support.
  • thank you to those who have sent emails and cards.
  • thank you to the Breast Cancer Coffee Group.
  • thank you to my blogging buddies who have supported my blog by signing up as supporters, who have emailed me, signed my guest book and/or made comments to my posts.
  • thank you to my friends who have offered their vacation homes as a getaway for my husband and I.
  • thank you to my friends who take me out for coffee/lunch and make sure I get out and about.
  • thank you to the staff of the Cancer Institute.
I feel very fortunate to have many supporters ... so thank you!

It's another beautiful sunny day but still chilly at -13 °C.

I feel very fortunate to have you as a supporter as well. You know Daria, there is an old saying, "You get what you give!" So do not be surprised by the goodness that comes your way - it is simply being returned by those you have given to.
Big hugs,

Thank you for writing down all of your thoughts. I found your blog on Kijiji and it's been very inspiring. It's my first year volunteering with the Relay for Life and I hear new stories daily of friends and family diagnosed with this disease. But I never hear the nitty gritty details that you have shared here, and it brings a whole new perspective to my reason to help out. Thank you.

Even in your death you are still inspiring Daria. I have only just found your blog 4 hours ago....and I am still reading along with you. I am only on my first round of Docetaxol, for recurrant stage 4 IDC. I only wish I had stumbled upon you earlier, but would I have been ready yet? We'll never know, and I am so blessed to make your aquaintance now.Thank you for paving the road ahead of me, and here's to those who will follow behind me.
