People tell me to ‘just rest’ but seeing the mess increases the stress! Bills pile up and just the management of my treatment takes a surprising amount of time.Â It is more than a trifle frustrating the way cancer can take over one’s life and focus switches from wellness to the disease.
At least I’m now at the stage where I can walk away from much of the workload. I concluded that being overly concerned about all the work is detrimental to health as well. I do my best to complete responsibilities but rank everything according to what is top priority. I do the other things as time and energy permit.
What is interesting is that I have attempted to do that most of my working life. Suddenly a death sentence trims the fat even more as I realise the world will not stop or grieve for some things that don’t get done before I am.
