Chemo-Rad Jane Takes life One Day at a Time

Friday, January 23, 2015

Life has a way of giving you a perspective you never expected. Breast cancer sure has changed my views on life and totally changed my outlook on how I am living my life and going to live my life in the future. My day to day struggle on fighting chemo and radiation systems and the way I look at food and how exercise and food nutrition is so important to health. I have lost 22 pounds since Thanksgiving and I am not even trying. The symptoms have curb my desire for food which is not a good thing. I am trying every day to keep track and eat but can only eat small meals four times a day but my exercise is more the than the calories I am taking in. So it is all about balance. Trying to maintain that balance is a challenge I have never had to face before so it is a new frontier for Chemo-Rad Jane and it is so unnerving. Taking steps to and strategies to handle this is so scary for me and I know others have traveled this road. It is so hard because your body never feels well and you just want to feel well again and I have to remind Chemo-Rad Jane to take it one day at time just take one day at time.

    I visited your Spark page & read your blog with the idea that Holy Spirit would give me words of encouragement for you & you know what happened? Your words & your whole outlook concerning what our Abba is allowing in your life has encouraged me.

    I pray our Creator God's perfect will each moment of your days!

    May you receive all He is giving you, as you determine to continue to trust in the shelter of our Father's wings!

    May the Lord grant you comfort and peace as you go through the treatments. May you know His presence with you moment by moment. May He bring the healing and restoration he has for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon Blessings,

    My challenge has been PTSD and there is no cure for that (other than the Lord). It effects every day of my life and all of my family and friends, too. There is no death sentence attached, but if I would allow it, it would destroy the foundation of my sanity and my life!

    I have allowed Jesus to touch me and am doing much better these past 9 years or so. I suffered for 10 long years not knowing what was the cause of PTSD. Now I live one day at a time, sometimes a minute at a time when the symptoms 'kick in'.
    The Lord is good and he is the HEALER! I agree with every comment that has been made here!
    Don't give up! God is with you and you are not alone.
    I hope your loved ones are supportive. I would love to be a part of your support system if you would like that spark friend me!

    Praying for you!

    I'm praying for you. I sort of understand how you feel. Mine was/is multiple sclerosis instead of cancer. Sometimes it's hard to put one foot in front of the other (literally). It's so much harder to be the recipient of help. Each month I take my monthly infusion at the local cancer center, so I come in contact with a lot of cancer patients. I can tell that it's their outlook that makes all the difference. I hope you have a good support system. Please consider me part of it, if you'd like to friend me.

    May God touch you and make you completely whole and healthy again! I am praying for you. He is the ultimate Healer regardless of whether it is done through medical treatment or instantaneously. Don't let your thoughts of a good future be clouded by what you are experiencing right now. God has a good plan for you and it's filled with hope for a better tomorrow.

    Praying a miracle for your life. You know, God says, Behold I am Lord of all flesh, is there anything too hard for me?"

    If you would like me to be one of your support people, I am here. Feel free to add me as a spark friend and I will be emoticon happy to do the same.
