I feel one coming on, oh heck I feel a lot coming on. Oh no, I don’t want to do it but I can’t control the temptation.
Yikes, here they come ... my New Year’s Resolutions.

Seems silly doesn’t it to try and control that which we have no power over, like our own health, but it’s often a reflex reaction when you’re diagnosed with cancer.
You feel there must be some way that you can solve this. But at some point you realize that life is going to take you where it wants, regardless.
Sometimes, the fact that we have no control over the big things in our life, transforms into a need to find things we can control – all the petty stuff: like which way up wine glasses are put in a cupboard; or how the dishwasher is loaded.
