It’s most important to have something to turn to when things get rough. Whether it’s going to the cinema, art gallery, shopping or watching your favourite movie or series at home on repeat, when you feel sad you need a go to. You are allowed to treat yourself. On a few occasions when Shelli received the magical word for a metastatic patient “Stable” it was a huge celebration time and an extra shopping date whether it was in store or online. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just something to remember a good day.
Every cancer patient knows that dreadful feeling between scans and your medical appointment for results. Whether it’s completing your first treatment, being proud of yourself for coping with a bad day or being fortunate enough to be told all okay, “come back in a year and have the scans etc again,” find a little something to be proud of. It’s time to give yourself a special treat! You deserve it.
