Sumary of How I Changed My Relationship With Fear:
- I was certain the lump I had felt in my breast was simply a cyst or a fibroadenoma — two of the most common benign breast tumors..
- Fixated on these questions, I drowned in devastation and denial, searching for something to blame for the fact that I had cancer..
- It only natural to wonder how the hell I got to this point, but staying stalled in my past didn’t serve me in my current situation — a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient who needed to get a port placed to start chemotherapy ASAP..
- Allowing my fear to surface, I noted it as a heaviness in my core that radiated icy-hot spikes through my limbs and a blossoming, steamy fullness in my cheeks..
- The more I practiced this process, the easier it became to experience all the emotions that arose when I was diagnosed with breast cancer..
- In fact, understanding myself in this way brought me clarity as to how I wanted to proceed as a young mom and doctor diagnosed with breast cancer and ultimately shaped my strength through my breast cancer journey…
