stage 4 colon cancer

I start chemo Monday. I'm a total basketcase! I don't know if my emotional roller coaster is from the hysterectomy or of I just can't handle this go around of cancer.

Re: stage 4 colon cancer

I'm sorry you are having to deal with all of this, I'm sure it is very overwhelming. Take deep breaths and focus on one thing at a time as the big picture can be way too overwhelming.
What kind of chemo will you be starting?

Re: stage 4 colon cancer

I'm so sorry to hear you are facing this. You're right: the hyst should be enough for anybody. To have to face this, too, must be very hard indeed.

When I used to get cancerhead really badly (typically in advance of some kind of test or treatment), I tried to make myself remember calming moments from my childhood. Some call it imaging. Have you used that kind of practice before? Maybe it might help you get through this next passage.

I'm sending you my favorite poem by a really fine poet. She died earlier this year. Lucille Clifton.

Blessing the Boats
(at St. Mary’s City)

may the tide
that is entering even now
the lip of our understanding
carry you out
beyond the face of fear

may you kiss
the wind then turn from it
certain that it will
love your back

may you
open your eyes to water
water waving forever

and may you in your innocence
sail through this to that
