So, I have learned a lot. The scariest part, after you get through the shock of learning you have cancer, is getting the PET scan to tell if the cancer has metastasized, which means if the cancer has spread somewhere else in your body. You get the scan and you wait, not too long, to find out. Managing your mind is the key. Your mind generates thoughts, mostly that cancer has spread throughout your body and you are surely going to die, but there is no evidence that this is true. You breathe, you breathe again, and a higher level of consciousness tells you not to jump to conclusions and to wait for the information to arrive that will define your life going forward. And that you do have to come to terms with dying in some small way.
