The initial thing to do is panic, as expected. Everyone around you fall to their knees and feel lost, you too.
I did too, but I transcended myself, and performed beyond expectation. You may not believe that this could happen but I will tell you no matter what you think. I chose to survive, and now I am months away from graduation from a diploma course, which I started during my treatment.
What makes you transcend yourself? Is it an expectation? Well, I can tell you, no. However, the fact is there for all to know, I believed in life. When you have an objective, and a will to live, you will naturally pick yourself up, and think of what to do, not wait for miracles. This is not the time to plan for an end, this is the time to conquer what nature tests you on.
I had two tumors, and now I live with a restricted diet. In addition, immunity problems too. So, I feel I can understand how you feel. The only thing that has pushed me and kept my head up from dropping down, is the purpose in life. You and I should know that there are many children out there, suffering since the day they were born. This gives you the purpose, help them, and live!
You fall when people tell you to.
You realize that the main reason others fall to submission and acceptance of "fate", is when everyone around you shows you a negative impression. This is their submission to "fate".
I live to see more people frown and jeer at others, but I suffer and still seem in a better state than many others, who are totally normal. I know they need to be positive in life.
