One of my favorite statements in the book by Terri , "What you do does not define who you are; what defines us is how well you rise after falling." Tools of the trade for those of experiencing this walk, include attitude and humor. Also becoming your own best advocate by taking notes, writing down questions, and keeping your records and appointments for future reference is vital. Guide your own ship and take that ownership so you are in control.
They even mention a program that is offerred here at the institute called LOOK GOOD, FEEL BETTER which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and without a doubt the best appointment you need to keep throughout this all as you will find fellowship, laughter, and comraderie. You and I both know when you look good you feel better and we can give you little helps and tips and show you how to do it so in the end you do feel better. I will admit it is like pulling teeth to get some patients to come to one more appointment but I never had anyone leave and not enjoyed themselves. So ladies sign up for this and I will guide you through.
Having just briefly hit the high points of this book, I will say it gave me alot of insight. If you have the opportunity, please read this and hopefully find some support and comfort in it as well.
Making it a great day!
