Video: Add a Face to My Words

This is one of the videos I have been asked to do this year to talk about life with metastatic breast cancer. They’re difficult to get out – sometimes by voicing these emotions, I feel like I’m separating the cream from the milk if you know what I mean, and afterwards comes the “clouds in my coffee” – and it’s not vanity but tears that fall. When verbal expressions of deep seated feelings surface the sadness fills up and over the brim of a cup I hold delicately in my hands.

I also thought you might like to see me, although it may send some of you to the unsubscribe button I hold out hope that instead you’ll see more of me and the effects of my disease on my life. Please enjoy and excuse the raw, unedited quality or lack thereof. Just life at the dining room table – no fake news, all fumbles and stutters, without subtitles or captions. The real me.

Be sure to check out my latest blog post on Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s site, for which i also volunteer my time as a patient advocate. My post covers tips on how you can use journals and creative expression for emotional well-being when faced with a cancer diagnosis. You needn’t have cancer or breast cancer to benefit from the article. There’s a lot to deal with these days, facing a global pandemic with the promise of vaccinations but no end in site. Please read and comment – it’s important to get the word out to for LBBC.org and all of its beneficial resources.
