Two years later..

More than two years have gone by since my hysterectomy. I'd like to say it was a breeze, mostly it was, but there were definitely some darker days. I had to get to know the new me, and I had to let go of a lot of opinions I once had regarding medication. I previously had taken pride on not 'needing' any sort of medications to function, but this new me most certainly did. FINALLY, I now feel like I have come out on the other side.
This month marks three years since I started this journey. It will never be over, but I will forever be grateful. I was given the chance to be proactive with my health, and take advantage of the amazing knowledge that science and medicine provide. Medicine is constantly evolving and hopefully improving. I am committed to always doing what I can to better my odds, and my loved ones' odds here on earth.
Not a day goes by that I don't look at my kiddos and wonder if I have cursed them with my faulty gene. I just hope and pray, EVERY DAY, that a cure for cancer is found.
