We all go through rough patches in our lives, physician when the path ahead seems too difficult, too challenging, and we wonder how we’ll get through it. That’s when we have to dig deep, believe in ourselves, and say “I got this”. We’ll look back and be glad we did.
Don’t stop, don’t look back, keep moving forward.
Yesterday morning, I got up early to visit Rice Lake in North Vancouver while the sky was overcast. I love how peaceful the forest is, being among the greenery helps with my health and well-being.
To recap: On Sunday, September 4th, I completed Cycle 21 Week 2. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex).
Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
