Being told you have cancer is scary. Fear and apprehension will often be your first response. Being diagnosed with cancer is like being run over by a train, this is not surprising because you have been run over by a train, an emotional train.
When this type of emotional train hits you, you will need to decide whether you will be traveling in first class or third class. Where you sit on the train, or even if you manage to get from under the train and find a seat is your choice; decide that you are a first class rider on your cancer journey.
Being told that you have cancer is not a bad thing; remember you are no sicker the day after you received your diagnosis than you are on the day before your diagnosis! Being diagnosed does not make you sicker. It means that you can choose to be on your way to becoming healthier.
Now that you know that you have cancer or another cancer, you can start taking action to control it.
I am not suggesting that you be glad that you have cancer, but be glad that you have the diagnosis, now that you know about it, and can begin to deal with it.
