I am 32 yrs old and I have cancer in several parts of my body. Sometimes I think that I have come to grips with what is going on with me and then again I think that I have not come to grips. I find myself crying alot and just talking to the lord and asking him to save me.What is one to do. I am not with my family. I live in another state and I really need them right now. I can go home but I need to take care of somethings here first before I leave. Does this ever get easier? Will the crying ever stop? I have so many questions that I would love to ask. If there is someone out there that can help me, please respond to me. I would really appreciate it.

Sincerely Yours
Jeni32

Hi. I am 31 years old and a four year survivor. Does it get easier? I am not sure. The hardest part for me now is having that passing thought everyday. WOW I had cancer! I think things change and you have different thoughts. For me my treatment time was probably the easiest emotionaly, because we were always busy. Does the crying ever stop? I am not sure. I find myself tearing up over small things now. Mostly my children. I guess what I am trying to say is things are different for different people. All is not bad though. God has given me some of the best friendships I have through cancer. There is a purpose for everything. I do not have all of the answers, but I will answer any question I can. Feel free to ask. God Bless

Hi Jeni, First know that your feelings are normal - you will have those ups and downs. I am a breast cancer survivor and even now after my treatments have ended, I still have those good and not so good days. Keep praying....because that is so important and will help you get through this. If you can be with your family, I recommend that; it sounds like you really want to be with them. I think if you are with them physically, they can provide the love and support that you really need. The crying will fade but you may find down the road that you will be crying for different reasons than you are now. Just stay strong and positive and know that there are so many other people out there who can reach out to you and help you get through. Please let us know how you're doing.
God bless,
Annie

Jeni...I am not sure that the crying ever stops, but I am so glad that it doesn't. Someone once told me that "crying was a cleansing of the soul". If that is the case, I have an extremely clean one. :) I am also not sure if it gets easier, but crying always helped and still does help me. My dad had cancer, but is now a 7 month cancer survivor. I weekly or daily cry. Sometimes I have no idea why. I just know that I am truly fortunate that my father is still alive and sometimes i take that for granted. Crying always helps me though. Even though my eyes are swollen, I feel better getting my emotions off my chest. I say you keep crying girl :) I am not sure if you ever come to grips with what is going on inside of you. Your body is such a complex thing and it may be impossible to completely understand it all. I hope God helps you get all the answers you need. I will be praying for you..God Bless!!!!
