Feeling completely alone

One of the biggest and secret moments that a cancer patient has through out this journey is the mighty “melt down” and feeling completely “alone.”
Smiling, making others happy – pretending everything is OK, well sometimes behind that smile it’s not.

When the melt down and blow up happens – you don’t want “it’s going to be alright” lectures and the art of war strategies. Cancer patients are their own fight every day without being told.

Some cancer patients have “melt downs” all the time, some hold it all in until like a massive nuclear bomb it explodes and goes off leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. (Shelli was the later.)

Bottling up your feelings because you don’t want to bring anyone else down is understandable at first, especially when you need time to process everything that’s happening to your body. But once you regain your footing, it’s important to communicate as openly as possible with your caregiver as well as your entire family.

Visiting a cancer patient face to face may be limited when they feel unwell and fatigued but many can be messaged on social media, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangout and phone! Nothing worse than feeling completely alone!
