For me, Cancer was a full time job added to my actual full time job and overbooked life. I think that’s why my first day of chemo hit me like a freight train. There is no hurry in chemo. There is no anesthesia. No hustle and bustle of people moving to get you from here to there. Nothing to organize. Nothing to do. There is an attentive staff preparing for your marathon. There is stillness. There is waiting. And there is a profound state of quiet.
