My journey… six monthsPosted March 15th, 2010 by hallter
The last week for me has been an emotional one. I met with a counselor and spoke about healing, both physically and mentally, from my cancer. The conversation proved to me that I’m stronger then I thought I was and really helped me to feel better about what I had been through. It helped to bring closure to my uncertainties, helped me to feel ok about my feelings.
I also had my six month check-up from the last surgery. I felt good about the appointment and the conversation with my doctor. The exam was good and the blood tests came back great. The lab results came back with abnormal cells and I had to go back for a more in depth exam. My initial reaction, and I’ll be honest, was panic!
The reason I’m sharing this is after the first moment of panic, I realized that I was breathing like I had learned in the Mind Spa and other presentations. It started unconsciously, which surprised me. Becoming more relaxed I was able to think and not panic. I did research as to the type of cells that were found which told me they were most likely not related to the cancer that I had. By relaxing, I was able to look at things with a different frame of mind and not in a panic-state.
I have gone back to the doctor and she found no abnormal cells, just dead cells that normally would shed. Life is good and I appreciate the time I have spent learning to breath. Breathing is, and can be relaxing!
Relax, breath and enjoy every moment that life sends your way!
