After my first chemotherapy treatment, my spin class instructor asked me before spinning "how are you?". ( A loaded question for anyone overcoming cancer.) I responded, "fine, except they added some steroids to the mix, and it me made a little edgy". Her response?
And then she spun us into near cardiac arrest with another of her "expand my horizons" music play list that included a few "edgy" songs.
I have since asked to be taken off the steroids, and there is beauty of being surrounded by lots of wise counselors as I continue the battle against a life shortening disease. For my spin doctor and others, being edgy is a cool thing, and it gave me the freedom to release the tension of the side affects of treatments in the presence of friends, who sincerely want me to get better.
I pray you surround yourself with a wide variety of professionals as you fight the good fight of faith.
Thank-you Beth, or Dr. Beth for being my spin doctor.
