“I’m All Right”

Jo Dee Messina

There are no coincidences.

I was feeling not so good recently because my treatments have been tough (lots of chemo and the unpleasant after-effects) and the results have been just ok. Too early to tell if what we are doing is working. Oh well.

Man does it get hard at times. A cancer journey is full of twists and turns. No matter, it is important to understand that it is what it is and that it is still up to us to decide if “I’m all right.”
