Cancer is something someone hates to hear, be it a simple type or a more aggressive type. For most people being diagnosed with cancer, can stir up all kinds of emotional and physical stuff, Also a lot of anger. You ask yourself questions like,”Why is this happening to me”, ” what is gonna happen to my family”, and ” what did i do to deceiver this bullshit, SCREW CANCER”. I still have to work, I still have to make a living for my family, how long is that gonna last?
It is important to note that not everyone will go through all of these stages. If you do, they might not happen in order. Some people have described a “roller coaster effect,” with lots of wild swings between stages. At least that’s what happened with me. After the anger, came the denial. ” There’s no way I have cancer, the doctor must be wrong”. Some times they are! So, always get a second opinion. Try to stay positive at this point for yourself and your family, like i said the doctors could be wrong.
The third and worst at least for me was the depression. Depression can get in your head and mess it all up. It tells you to forget about taking care of yourself. What does it mater, your gonna die anyway right? Remember my fiends he is not your friend, forget about the drugs and alcohol that depression keeps telling you to do and stand up an say SCREW CANCER!
Then there comes bargaining..”maybe if i had done this or that right ” “what if its something that will just go away in time and i don’t have to worry about it” Bargaining is a good way to keep your head in the sand so to speak.
At that point, that’s when acceptance comes along and you accept that you have, cancer. So what should I do to better myself? Do I listen to the doctor ? Do I start the chemo, the radiation, herbal cures, essential oils, fruits, diets (to help clean out the poises in your body). However the stages come, it’s not that easy and when you think you have figured it all out, the roller-coaster starts all over again. After everything you have tried to help your self with keeps leading you back to anger. Which once again, allows depression to weasel its way back in.
