Home Now what? The highs and lows of survivorship

You've got this...

I know we all have good days and we all have bad days, hell, sometimes it's good hours and bad hours, not even days. I hope this helps a little: 

The path maybe rocky, with many twists and turns,

there’s going to be downward slopes where you’ll slip and loose control.

There’ll be steep trails where you’re likely to trip and stumble,

but remember, each step is a step forward.

Each day brings you closer to the end.

Every morning gives you another day to strive.

The light at the end of the tunnel is still there,

even if you loose sight of it some days.


You’re loved by many,

Supported by more people than you know.

You’ve more strength than you can imagine.

Lift your head and walk on,

    Hi @Cath62, I wrote it for myself as much as others, to remind me to keep going on the days when it gets hard. A really dark sense of humour and someone to share it with helps too! Be kind to yourself.
    I saw a quote and I can't remember who wrote it (sorry), that said:
    "My body has cancer, my spirit does not."
    Great affirmation and great to tell people who have trouble separating you from your cancer diagnosis.
