I am writing a page about Childhood Cancer. I feel that is better than writing a post, because a post will just get pushed further down my blog each time I publish something new. A page will be static.
Even as I type this, I’m thinking of the analogy that I have just created.
If I was able to deal with Childhood Cancer and move on, then it would be getting pushed further and further away, as new memories are made and different experiences are lived. Instead, it sits beside me everywhere I go. It doesn’t sit comfortably either.
However, my son’s illness forms a huge part of my life and is part of what makes me who I am. It seems right then that it will become part of the ‘backbone’ or ‘framework’ of my blog.
Thinking about ‘backbone’, I was going to put an inspirational quote in here, about strength and adversity, but, I’ve failed to find a suitable one! Everything I’ve found on the internet implies that, once you can no longer be strong in a situation, that you have failed in some way. (Or that’s my interpretation anyway). So, I am working towards being strong again. All my strength has gone for now. But hopefully I can BUILD on my experiences and become stronger. My experiences therefore being a ‘framework’ to work from.
Perhaps though, the most important reason for having a page dedicated to the subject is that, it will be more easily accessible and will be highlighted in the menu. The more information that is available to others will hopefully mean fewer cases being misdiagnosed and could save a life.
I will write another post when I have completed the page. To be honest, I expect I will write more posts about it as my blog develops and refer back to the page anyway.
As always, I’m grateful for your feedback and knowing that people are reading my posts is good.
