Medical trauma can leave you feeling voiceless.

You didn’t choose the earth-shattering diagnoses – you had a stroke, you have cancer, you need an amputation – you could die. Medical personnel speak in their terminology, and you feel lost. Suddenly, you don’t seem to understand the meaning of common words, and the world becomes an overwhelming, too-loud place.

Managing Your Experience of Medical Trauma Step 1

No pain is insignificant. Suffering is universal.

Many people are too quick to say that "no matter what you are going through, someone has it worse" or "there is always someone with bigger problems". It is emotionally dismissive and conveys the message that your struggle is insignificant and that you are overreacting...my concern is, how is the situation affecting you?

Cowden syndrome

I too have cowden syndrome and many a time
I think why me.ive had 3 operations on thyroid.1 to take a sample, the other to remove half and then 3rd total thyroidectomy at 30 was when it wrapped around my airpipes in a dangerous way and had to come out. It was stopping me breathing.

I had lost my mum to cancer and was adamant if ever i had children id get regular mammograms so my children could have a mum around.at 42 cancer was found..I had a mastectomy and reconstruction.3 months later i had a reconstruction on other breast and chemotherapy which i hated as was sick as a dog.
It took 1 yr to get the results from a blood test as i asked for regular mammograms at 40.

I was put on tamoxifen. My periods started to play up.
Had to have polyps removed on and off for a few years till i had a prophylactic hysterectomy. At 50 i decided i wanted my left breast gone.i had a feeling.mammograms were clear but a grade 1 lobular cancer was found.

Colon is being monitored as is kidney where they found a mark as an incidental finding. 2 sites on the 'cowden list'.

I have had other thimgs to contend with unrelated to cowdens but this is something that always stay with me. I keep myself to myself and dont talk about cowdens with people who dont know me well. I have days the fight gets me down.grappling with thyroid tiredness and carrying on can be overwhelming but i try.

To anyone who has a rare disease, dont let anyone stare at you.we are unique.and for some reason , ive been picked.

Gods timing #FightCancer

#Cancer @ no point did God say you are up next for death.

There's so many people who have died before you.

Your Fight for cancer is more mental than physical.

Sort out that belief that says cancer kills? Who said you can't be the 1st to fight this mentally?

No one can dictate your beliefs.

Your healing is all dependant on the strength of your belief.

Inbox me, lets talk.

My husband was diagnosed too.

Nothing beats beliefs, prayer and action.

I started with beliefs because you may pray well but if your beliefs are not in order... I'm afraid.

God loves you and exhaust your mental ability.
