My favourite ‘cancer mom’ blogger is Nicole Scobie. She just gets it like only the parent of a kid with cancer can. Her latest entry is called How Not To Cry.
I had to read it. I have become an expert at not crying. I rarely cry in public anymore. I do my best to be ‘numb’. It is possible to be so tired of crying you can control it, even in the most difficult situations. If you ever see me not crying an wonder how I am doing it maybe you will also see that kinda clued out look on my face as I disconnect what is happening from my emotions. It’s a copying skill many parents have had to develop just to get through the days, weeks, months and years we are under intense stress because our children’s life is being threatened by disease.
How Not To Cry is also a tribute to a little girl who refused to let her cancer take her spirit for play!
Give it a read. Maybe Nicole will become your favourite too.
