Jordan's Journey

Jordan's Journey... a kid trying to kick cancer's butt... from a loving fathers' perspective.
"... The chemo ritual has never been easy for Jordan...

"... Jordan’s relationship with cancer has changed. It annoys her. It’s inconvenient. More than ever before, she treats it as a terrible nuisance that gets in the way. And, she dreads the steps it takes to make the nuisance go away. Her mind is preoccupied with the side effects. She has grown-up anxieties and she’s fatigued by them. There’s little one can say to quell these anxieties. The best we can do is acknowledge them. The best we can do is apologize and show signs of true empathy while we watch from the sideline and pray some of the suffering could transfer from her to us. The best we can do is love her. And that we do while wishing through tightened lips that we could do more..."

It's not an easy space to be in when you share with some people of my own personal 'health-issues' story at the moment, and they simply i] don't believe you, and ii] keep talking over the top of you while you're trying to tell them, is fairly upsetting, to say the least.

Such kind people...

And no, I'm not being a drama llama either.

I've written a few thoughts in my private blog about it all...
Peas be with ewe
