The Cancerland Carousel


I frequently use this image: If being diagnosed with breast cancer the first time was like being on a roller coaster, living with metastatic disease is like being on a carousel or merry-go-round.

Sometimes I'm sitting on the bench, enjoying a quiet ride.

Other times I'm going up and down on a pony.

That's what it feels like now.

  1. Jill,

    I agree with you on that ... highs and lows.

  2. You are very right. Roller coasters, merry go rounds...it sounds like a fair. But there's no cotton candy, so you discover it's not fair at all.

  3. I pray that you may find even more moments of peace and pleasure on the ride..
