The best thing that my new doctor said to me yesterday? “You can change your mind a hundred times if you want. This is a dynamic process.”
She put me totally at ease.
There’s been so much pressure to make decisions that feel so permanent, and not wanting to make a mistake.
There’s also been a lot of people trying (with good intentions) to terrify me with their own horror stories, or sad stories of treatment or experiences with cancer. There’s a lot online that is scary. I try to avoid it all, not read it, stay away from it.
This isn’t denial. It’s smart.
It’s smart to protect my own energy and energies. It’s smart to create a bubble of safety around myself while I’m most vulnerable.
I change my mind a lot on a lot of things in general, now in feel more freedom about upcoming breast cancer treatments.
It may not be easy for others around me, with my constantly changing mind and moods, but it is what it is, and now I can accept it and just go with it.
Whew! … for a new doctor.
