Apathy. This is my story about apathy. How it affected my life. Apathy is the lack of interest or enthusiasm or the lack of concern. In other words - indifference, often in things that strongly affect our lives.
I knew there were things I should do , but well, I would get around to them. Just not now. It could wait. I was doing ok. I talked about eating organic food but you know, it's easier to just pick things up around the corner, and it does cost more. I might have to forgo a movie or eating out to be healthy and it wasn't going to kill me. Or was it???
Then one day as I was looking in the mirror after my shower, I saw something that did not look right. Now I had time to check things on the computer. It said it could be a symptom of breast cancer. My heart almost stopped!
I called the doctor, got a mammogram, some other tests and behold, I not only had breast cancer, but lung cancer and skin cancer , all at the same time. Not too busy now to look at things but too busy to do anything but have one biopsy after the other (4 in all). Next came 3 surgeries to remove the cancers and then radiation and chemo pills. I opted out of the other chemo drugs.
