My new path.
Do you have a brain tumor? I do.
May is National Brain Tumor Awareness Month, and I’m celebrating by having surgery to remove an egg sized tumor from behind my left ear. Egg sized…yea, no more eggs for me! I have encountered hard boiled eggs left and right recently, yet I can’t quite comprehend that something that size has actually grown inside of me. I still picture it to only be the size of a plastic bottle cap.
I don’t know if I’m still in shock, in denial or just don’t fully understand what is happening. I would really love to know which of those three options is what I’m actually feeling. It would really, really help me to deal with this. I don’t want to let myself get depressed. I want to be positive. When there is a chance that you could have Brain Cancer, it is so hard to not be depressed and be positive instead.
My life has made one huge wrong turn and I just want so badly to put it in reverse and get back on the path I had been going.
I like to think that my new path is just an extra long journey that one day will connect to the path I had envisioned, and this bumpy, ugly road will be one of my past.
