This group has been through a tough stretch the past couple of months. I am a 6 year survivor of stage 3 rectal cancer, diagnosed when I was 36. I am disease free and considered cured, but make sure to tune in here and let people know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. But today, I myself feel down. As a criminal proseuctor stress is a daily factor, and it is a guarantee that someone will not be happy with our work. I work hard and am a good attorney, but there are times when my work seems irrelevant compared to what we have gone through, and are going through. Our return to life is no walk in the park, and our physical and emotional wounds remain tender. I give so much credit to us, the fighters, who continue on in life while dealing with such a draining experience. We could probably all use some sun and sand somewhere, with no worries other than what time dinner is served and when the tide comes in so we can move out beach chairs. Anyway, thanks for letting me share a little...you guys are the only ones who know the shoes I walk in.
