What I've learned over the past year:
I have learned that life is really short and it is very useless to waste it by being negative. It's important to remember all the good you have and try your best to forget about the bad. Being negative about your circumstances, just destroys yourself and your family. My mom was very positive when she went through all her procedures and I think that is what saved her. I guess I've just learned to be grateful for what you've got and forget all the other stuff. That's about all I can do with this.
