Trying to keep busy
Thursday, December 09, 2010
My "baby" sister is currently battling cancer with a really grim prognosis. It's the first thing I thing of when I get up, and in fact, I find myself dwelling on it in the middle of the night. 3 AM seems to be my witching hour so naturally I am craving carbs and my cortisol levels are probably in the trees. Being a Type A person, it is difficult for me to not be able to control her cancer-just zap it and make it go away. As a nurse, I see the worst in this situation and am a real "downer" to the rest of the family who maintain hope. I have to bite my tongue a lot.
