A couple of weeks ago I dreamed that I was watching next year's AFL Grand Final and it was looking like Hawthorn was going to lose. I was thinking 'this can't be happening again, not again' and I felt so dreadfully unable to cope with it. This dream has remained clear in my mind since although I normally quickly forget dreams.
I didn't realise at first but then when I thought about it I saw that it was a very obvious translation of worry about my annual check-up. I was not conscious of being worried but underneath I clearly was.
I had the check-up and it was all fine apart from having put on some weight which is a whole other bucket load of both practical and emotional issues.
I hope by writing my dream down I can stop remembering it. I don't want to talk to people about it as they think I am past having cancer issues and I don't want them to know how much it still effects me.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
