Last week when Ms. Fawcett passed away - even though I knew that her time on Earth was limited - I found that I became very sad and went in to a deep depression. I had watched her documentary of her story and of course could relate to the physical and emotional pain. And I felt sad for her friends and family that are grieving her passing.
It seems to happen every time I hear of someone's passing because of their loss with the battle of cancer. I thought at one time that I was somewhat emotionaly strong, but found out last year after a friend passed away, also at the age of 62, from cancer - that I am not strong. I cry for days and I can hardly shake the sadness.
If any of you have any advice for me on how to deal with the emotional issue of when someone looses their battle with cancer - how I can become stronger and get through the profound sadness, I would very much appreciate your advice.
Thank you for listening.
It has been so long since I got onto the AARP site, I forgot how great it is to hear from others who have cancer or are survivors of cancer. I watched the documentry on Farrah and I cried! She was such a couragous woman, what a fighter! She loved life and was not ready to go. I kow when I went through my chemo I had a lot of emotions, why me? am I going to die? Will I ever feel good again? etc etc. I am now 5 yrs cancer free and it does get better. I am now traveling all over the country exhibiting at trade shows to promote my scarf design to help those with hair loss due to health issues. I love helping those with low self esteem from losing their hair. Farrah was known for her beautiful thick hair and when she lost it and showed her head she seemed like such a fragile, vulnerable little girl!
