Sick with Worry

This post will be a quickie.

Ever heard of the saying “Sick with worry?” Yeah? Well, me too. But, I’d never actually experienced ‘sick with worry’ until my diagnosis.  It’s terrible — horrible. Three words that seem totally innocuous.  However, when you are actually sick with worry, you will be on your ass. Or the bathroom floor, in my case. Just dry heaving and spinning. I’ve not figured out a real solution to this problem. Right now my best defense is Paul. I just let him rub my back until it’s over and then I hug him and cry into his t-shirt.

Sick with worry…. You’ve probably read those three words, and/or said them a million times in your life. I now know what it means and I hope none of you out there reading this ever experience this feeling.

Now, back to reality — get out there and VOTE, today is ELECTION DAY!

  1. I wish I could give you the biggest hug right now! I feel and hear your fear, and I hurt for you. You are stronger than you think, and bigger than this horrible “c” that is knocking you back. Be still, and know that you will be the victor here. I am thinking of you and praying for both of you.


  2. So I’m miles away in the UK and I know just how you feel. I’ve been there and it sucks. All I can offer is that it will pass, just like the flu or a bad migraine. It’s natural to be sick with worry, we’ve received a huge shock and that takes time to sink in. You’re stronger than you’ll think right now and you’ll adjust to a “new normal.” Be kind to yourself, give yourself time and space to get to grips with this new reality, no one expects you to get there straight away.
