I think that the best thing my brain tumor did for me was give me the understanding that I am not in control, and the only thing that I have control over is my behavior. That, for me, was enlightening. I have a hard time believing that there was any higher reason for my brain tumor, cancer two years later (totally unrelated) and the recurrence of my tumor a few years after that.
I feel as though I have always struggled with faith and trust. I have a difficult time accepting that I am not in control. My brain tumor literally brought me to my knees. I have to have faith. I have to believe that this is part of a greater plan…and I do. I know that I am a different person now and I am slowly learning to accept the “new normal”….how has your faith changed or evolved?
