This week my husband and I heard those beautiful little words of N.E.D. (no evidence of disease) result. And I have to say, I never tire of these magical words! They are my lifeline!
Confession… I admit the process never gets any easier, in fact sometimes I think as we get further away from my initial no evidence of disease result that we heard back in October of 2015, the anxiety can grasp you even more. They call this “scanxiety”, and folks, it really is a thing!
My scanxiety isn’t as intense as what it use to be, but it lingers in the background and I know now how to really keep myself busy up until the day of results! I know that what I have been granted is this beautiful blessing of time, but I must not dwell on what the possibility might be, of if and when my cancer may return. To do this, I feel I would not be living.
Do you suffer scanxiety, and how do you cope? Share with me below!
When I shared my news with my social media followers I left them with these words…
The unpredictability of life can never be taken for granted.
Even when we stare our mortality in the face, there are still possibilities, there is still life, there is still breath… I am forever grateful for these beautiful words of no evidence of disease and I hope they bless the ears of many other patients’, not just my own!
With love, light and bundles of gratitude xx
