From the time of diagnosis to forever, one of the hardest things with which a cancer survivor will ever have to do is to ask questions. First of all, we don’t know what to ask as we have no experience in the field and second, we can’t necessarily trust the answers that we are given by the members of our medical team even if one of them has the the time and/or the disposition to help. So what is a person to do?
“Whenever something doesn’t sound right or feel right, I ask for the help of God Almighty to help me to know what to do and to trust that this is the best guidance that I can possibly receive.“Barbara Jacoby
It was easy when I was going through treatment as it was many years ago before social media and all of the medical collective operations so I pretty much did as I was told except when what I was directed to do did not sound right to me so I asked to be directed to a second opinion. But now there is so much information available and so much of it conflicting from so many sources. And if the last couple of years have taught us anything, we must do our own research carefully and not jump to immediate action or conclusions.
You may be in a position to have a medical doctor in whom you have total trust and therefore feel comfortable to do as directed. Or you may have no desire to do any research on your own which is fine but not likely if you are reading this post. However, for most people, this is not the case.
Therefore, if you are like me, you might ask for some Divine intervention. Whenever something doesn’t sound right or feel right, I ask for the help of God Almighty to help me to know what to do and to trust that this is the best guidance that I can possibly receive. And just as I have never been steered wrong in the past, you may find this to a path for you in the future as well.
