Saturday, my husband and I had an eye appointment- long overdue for 4 years now.
I’ve been getting some stellar headaches and with Myeloma in the midst you try and
stir away from getting paranoid- but ya never know…
All went well with the multiple blinks and slight chuckles as the doctor and nurse made us feel
so comfortable. I’m sure most of you can relate when filling out your health history for new doctors who tend to be introduced in your world, well even though this was a eye appointment
I felt and usually now feel compelled to let all health care people know that I’m not your typical
patient and a girl has some issues- unfortunately.
Well upon giving the spelling of myeloma- the nurse so nonchalantly stated she’s a 10 year cancer survivor of breast cancer. Have you noticed as I, that even not by chance meeting people with cancer nowadays is a norm. Someone out there is going through the same or similar trials we’re all facing this time of our life. Well this lovely lady was very calm and I suppose felt the worst was behind her for now. We spoke briefly about needles and one of her procedures that consisted of a mammogram
machine and a tube inserted in her breast…. Ouch!!
It’s amazing how any of us get through what we have to do to figure cancer out.
One thing I can say is cancer brings us together in one form or another- and the will to survive by all means necessary could never be as true than when breaking down the similarities.
Be strong my fellow mm family!
We will get through this by all means!
