Hello members, I am tagging you in this discussion because this has been a very inspiring and engaging discussion.
If you go back to page 1, you can read the story of Anna Renault and how she thrives with cancer after defeating cancer 8 times! Let us hear your story and share what thrive with cancer means to you!

I have always tried to continue to focus on the positive things in life... such as my family.
I also put posters around my house... encouraging posters of things I wanted to still accomplish in my life, like go back to school, beat cancer, take another family vacations, etc... Seeing these encouraging statements each day made me focus on not giving up.

How are you today? I thought I would revive this older, but helpful discussion!
Going through cancer treatment or caring for someone with cancer can be hard on the morale.
What do you do to stay positive on hard days? What helps motivate you to keep fighting? What helps you to "thrive"?

I don't know how I feel about this. I know it's obviously important to try to stay positive and not get bogged down, but sometimes I feel like there's almost this pressure on cancer patients to always be positive and strong and to be a "warrior" and set a good example almost. Does anyone else feel like that or is it just me?

Linda here. I just joined and I am having trouble figuring out how to do things on this site, so I don't have a profile or a picture yet and no clear indication that this remark is going to be in the right place, but I would like to respond to suzzie that I also do not like the warrior/fighter images about cancer. I always say I am in treatment for my metastatic breast cancer and that I am working hard to get the best care and treatments available to have mybest life while caring for my chronic condition.

I enjoy traveling in my 30' Class C RV. Gets me out of the house and I get to change the scenery. Can't go too far as I get chemo shots every Thursday, so I have to travel around that day.

@Michele720 Wow that's amazing! What a great way to take your mind off things! I always love going for a drive when I need to clear my head.

I feel most times I am still living due to my daughter in my life. I also feel if it wasn't for that I wouldn't want to live. I am in constant anguish and very alone and my reason for looking for someone to talk to. Just to vent.

@Cooqie33 I feel the same way at times. I had a plan. I have 3 kids. I want to be positive, but I’m angry!
