When the going gets tough, the tough get goingLife has been difficult for me over the last three months, and it has turned my world upside down. It felt like the end of the world at times, but my inner voice reminded me that this was not the way I could give up.
The problem started when I started getting frequent fevers and back pain; I started losing weight and muscle, and it got worse when I couldn't eat properly. I went to some good doctors, but none of them could find my problem, and it was only when I did the ultrasonography suggested by a hospital doctor that it was discovered that I had a tumour in my body, which needed to be removed immediately. I had an operation, and the tumour was removed, but it was not the end of my problem but started a new one. My doctor said that cancer has spread in my stomach and I need to go for chemotherapeutic treatment. My biopsy report is yet to come, and as soon as it does, my doctor can start the proper treatment.
I missed being able to come online and share my feelings with you all, despite the fact that I was not online in ISC but used to read forum posts every day. This post is not to get sympathy but to let you all, my friends, know that no matter how hard or tough a time I get in my life in the coming days, I have to win the battle and comeback soon to my daily routine. My friends and family, and not to forget my boss and my coworkers, all stood with me in this tough time, and I am really thankful to all of them that they all did not let me feel demotivated. I have often said in forum posts that more than the medicines, it is the will power that helps to cure any disease. The time has come for me to do the same.
