While I really am interested in increasing awareness about the experiences of cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, and family and friends who are all affected by cancer, I must admit reading, thinking, and talking about cancer makes me “feel” it a little bit closer. And it is depressing.

To change the subject, I started reading and thinking about other diseases and got more depressed.

There is a limit to what one can undertake.

I think there is a survival mechanism somewhere in us that gives this feeling a break and directs us away from distress and helps find us things we can enjoy.

For me, that will be remembering the activities I enjoyed, like that 2nd hand store I like going around. I have been there more than 3 months ago. Time to re-visit. See what I can see, what I can find to purchase.
