Fighting my oligodendroglioma grade 3
This is my second touch with brain tumours! I had my first tumour removed in 2007, but it returned as grade 3 cancer, requiring a second surgery in October 2011. I finish radiation tomorrow (yay!) and should be starting chemotherapy in a few weeks.
Not really sure what I want to say. I just want to connect to other cancer fighters to feel like I am less alone. I have a beautiful family who have all been so generous with their time and love, but I know they are finding it hard more than they would like and on a rational level i do understand why. The most hurtful comment was that it's all become about me and that our family now all have cancer. That's hard to hear, especially when im so tired from the radiation. The truth is that none of us want this, least of all me but what they say is true. And I hate that it's my fault.
Words of encouragement and support would be greatly appreciated. I am tired from the radiation and trying to stay strong for everyone. I know I should be getting more sleep and focusing on positive thinking/ yoga to get through this as best as possible, but I'm feeling too tired to even start! Hoping when the radiation is over I will feel better?
