Husband, I think I’m going to get cancer,
He says, “you aren’t going to get cancer,”
I say, “a lot of relatives had cancer,”
I say, “I don’t know what I’ll do if I get cancer,”
He says, “you aren’t going to get cancer.”
Husband, the chemo brings a symptom that is part of my phobia,
Husband, I don’t think I’ll be able to get chemo if I get cancer,
Husband, why did I have to get this phobia?
Husband says, “you won’t get cancer,”
I ask, “do you still love me with this phobia?”
So what do I do?
I do what I did when my panic attacks used to happen every day,
Continue my education is what I do,
I keep researching every day,
Trying to find an answer through education is what I’ll continue to do.
