Happy November

One year ago today I got the call. 

You have breast cancer.

And even though I already knew,  it was like someone punched me really hard in the chest.  I felt like I couldn’t breathe, like i was underwater.  The words didn’t quite make sense. I can’t remember anything else she said. I just remember the feelings that came along with those words.

Empty. Sad. Tired. Resigned.

Nothing else mattered.

A year is a long time.  It changes you.  Sometimes I’m surprised I made it.  But here I am.  I intend to make the most of the time I have left.
