Since your diagnosis, how has your confidence been?

  1. What a timely question ... someone just sent me a copy of "They Said To Go Home" (https://www.contemplatingcancer.com they-said-to-go-home) WOW what a powerful piece.


    For me it captures exactly how I feel after receiving a blood-cancer diagnosis, being treated and then ... turned loose. My confidence is building back now but as she says in the article ...you feel like you have been turned around 20 times and sent off in a new direction. Dennis(Blood-Cancer.net TEAM)

  2. Confidence is an interesting thing to look into. My confidence has suffered because of weight gain, hair changes and mobility issues. Those are the outside things. On the other hand, I've gained confidence internally knowing that I can handle a lot of adversity and still survive.

    1. 🫂💗

    2. So agree there is an inner strength and sense of self-confidence that happens as you emerge from the tailspin of cancer and the treatments.


      You have run the gauntlet and come out the other side with a sense of victory and a deep appreciation in knowing that you are still here and living life 🎉 Dennis(Blood-Cancer.com Team)

  3. I’m not sure if this will make sense but I definitely going to give it a try my confidence has taken a bit of a beating but at the same time my confidence has risen. It’s much better than before and I’m still improving my confidence each day there are areas in my life that I am not as confidence just because of the side effects of the chemo and bone marrow transplant overall I’m working on all of it♥️ I hope that makes sense not the best at trying to explain what I’m trying to say in my mind lol 🫂 I hope you’re kidding what I’m trying to say🥴😬💗Amanda🐼blood-cancer.com team member 🧡

    1. You are doing a great job Amanda. The fact you are writing about it says you are traveling "Recovery Road" at a nice pace and gaining confidence with each step you take. Suspect you will be running a full speed 🏃🏾‍♀️in the not too distant future. ...Dennis(Blood-Cancer.com TEAM)

  4. I love the metaphor of "Recovery Road" which too, has taken me along its twists and turns and numerous potholes that I try desperately to avoid. Occasionally there is level ground and with it the ability to see over the hill : - )

    1. Glad you liked the Metaphor - it just hit me one day and Blood-Cancer.com is where we all can find fellow Travelers carrying similar loads
