In a recent therapy session my therapist asked me why I am afraid of my cancer returning and it being the ultimate cause of my death. Basically, why am I afraid of dying from cancer? The answer is I’m afraid it could cut my time short. Because it happened so early in my life I am afraid that cancer could be the reason I don’t get to do what I want to do in my life.
Luckily, I am healthy and all is well right now. But the possibility is always there, right now that fear is just a little more amplified than it usually is.
