Just read this on Twitter today and it hit home as my husband may be starting more chemo.  Some how it relieved some stress for me.

Wink.  I am right there with you!  I hope the link works.  I can't cut and paste it from my post.  As the caregiver, I feel a total lack of control and cannot even imagine the patient's feelings of loss of control.  As I sit and watch my husband (sort of a control freak in his own right) lay on the bed with people poking and prodding him and being completely out of control of things, I am impressed!

I've not read the article but what you have described is an article of losing control.  It's very hard for me as I've always been in control of my direction in life, my future, my goals and when that was overturned by a diagnosis of something that was not in my future, it made me feel anxious, nervous, anxiety and scared.  I'm not one to fly either because I'm not in control.  I'm just trying to give it up to God and hope that he can control my future and let me know He's in charge.
