While going thru them, I don't like to talk about my personal challenges. I'm pretty private so I keep certain things to myself.

This will sound strange coming from one who is agnostic. But I pray for the strength to deal with whatever it is I'm going thru and whatever lies ahead. I keep to myself a lot and I also find writing things out to be helpful. I can examine my reaction and feelings about things when I write them out. It can also help get things out of my system.

Cancer tries to steal things from you.

It should be re-marketed as Can't-cer. Can't taste food anymore. Can't sleep for a consecutive stretch of more than 4 hours anymore. Can't avoid the occasional moping introspection about mortality anymore.

It's not like getting shot, or in a serious car accident. If you survive those things, you recalibrate and move forward. You pay the price and get to the business of moving on with life.

The problem with cancer is that it keeps charging even after the initial transaction is done, and you keep getting these annoying phishing emails trying to pull you back into recurrence.

In a way, it's a little like stumbling into a patch of quick-sand. Not only does it try to suck you under and suffocate you, but if it doesn't kill you, it still tries to keep you locked in one place (Cancer limbo sucks). You find yourself trapped in a landscape of perpetual risk and anxiety.

Cancer is a taker.

But surviving cancer does GIVE you some things. Insight. Perspective. A new and distinct vantage point to look at what matters in your life.

Very true, at least when we survive this it does gives us a broader perspective in, life trying not to be ****ty anymore.
