Catherine's Assessment

Who I am

I have cancer

I rate the pain

It's hard to describe

My dog is good company

My sister is a Godsend

My husband has not been well

It's hard to describe

Maybe they understand but I just don't think they understand what this numbness and tingling are. I don't think they understand what this is that I'm going through. And I can't seem to describe it to them. At one time, somebody said to me, "Well, you got gastritis. That sounds like gas." I said no, it's not gas. I've had gastritis and I know what it is. This is nerves. It is not gas of any kind. I guess unless you go through it yourself, you don't realize what it is.
