I have thought about commenting on the latest discussion on mammograms, but haven't really been clear what to say. Therefore, I appreciate Gail Collins today.
Where I live it is almost a rite of passage to have been through treatment for breast cancer. There was a talk last night near me about how breast cancer may be influenced by environmental pollution. "Duh," I thought. Look at how we are exposed. What do we expect? And look at the stress, and on and on. I felt pretty clear about what caused my cancer. I was not dealing well with my response to Bush. I have a little warning system now. My scar goes into a Harry Potter type of distress when my thinking is off track.
It is why you often see a back and forth on this blog. Can you believe this? Oh, my this is a beautiful place, and it is, and it is, and it is.
This time of year my chemo nausea comes back. My body remembers, and I am so very grateful to be here. Thank you all for being here with me, and sharing a world that is beautiful and complex, and simple, too. Love, commitment and gratitude truly make the world go round.
