Brain Cancer: What Overcoming it Taught me

But a few things helped me get through my cancer experience and come out healed.

  1. Surround yourself not only with people who love you, but also believe in you. They must believe in the power you have to heal, the strength you have to fight this and your own resolve to win this.
  2. Don’t blame yourself. This is not your fault.
  3. Stay active and social. You may want to hide out from the world. But that won’t help you get through this. By hiding away, slipping in your own precious state of depression, anxiety or fear, listening to your own bad talk, this is what can destroy your sanity and resolve to win this. By keeping your activities and social relationships alive, you will help yourself feel normal and move through this process with a deeper sense of well-being.
  4. Realize that food is nourishment. That everything you put into your body can impact your opponent — helping or hindering it — so by seeing what you eat as natural medicine you will become more aware of what will help fuel your body and make it able to fight this.
  5. Be open and unashamed to accept professional care. My doctors were amazing and sometimes we need that extra help.
  6. Move your body! I fell back in love with yoga, especially through Yoga with Adrienne. I started by doing her 30 day challenges, and am now up to 3 classes of hers a day. Amazing way to get healthy and prepare the body for Soulgasms.
  7. Decide and relax into the fact that it’s going to be OK.
