Time becomes elastic when cancer enters your life. A day can stretch to infinity yet a month can be gone in a snap. Your every day thought is consumed with when and how long or where the time has gone. When will the clinic call with an appointment, a diagnosis, a biopsy result? How long have I got? How long can I wait? How can it be chemo day already? Where have the months gone?
For most of your life you settle into a comfortable routine of work, family and social life. Most of the time it is your solace, security and home. Sometimes you come to resent that routine and see it as a rut. It seems like an endless, laborious, mind-numbing grind. Treasure those times, the good and the bad. When your life is thrown into turmoil, you will long for the worst of days past.
