It is not easy to go through cancer by yourself. Yes, many people do do it but I highly recommend that you get support. There are many ways to do that either with a in person support group, online support group or with family/friends.
While I was going through chemo I signed up for a wonderful group called Chemo Angels. I was assigned two angels (one from Texas and one from NJ- my home state) that wrote me every week. They sent me encouraging notes, letters and small gifts in the mail. On my bad days, it took all my energy to walk to the mailbox but to get a letter just made my day. I can guarantee that these notes will:
Make your smile
Gives you encouragement
Make you feel like someone cares
I have saved several of these notes and value them with all my heart. They were strangers, angels that made me feel like I was not alone. This is one of my favorite cards.
