Hello there. I was diagnosed with colon cancer approximately one week ago. My mom cried; my sister cried; I was numb. I’m unsure as to how I should feel. Sometimes, I think to myself, “I have cancer. OK. No big deal.” Other times, I doubt this is a reality. I feel as though I’m having an out-of-body experience - as if I’m watching a movie of someone else’s life. How do I go about completely accepting my diagnosis? Any help is appreciated. Thank you for reading. GOD bless you.
