I've wanted to be a teacher my entire life. I love learning new things, and one of the best ways to really learn a subject is to teach it. As long as a student is motivated to learn, I have infinite patience in trying to teach new concepts and ideas. In college, however, I learned that in my chosen career, science, teaching isn't rewarded. Research is.
So I decided to pursue a career in industrial research, where, ironically, teaching is rewarded.
Part of the point of this blog will be to teach others (and myself) about living with metastatic cancer in general, and metastatic breast cancer in particular. So I'm departing from what I had planned to write about to opine on a question that was posted on my Facebook page. Fair warning, my friends don't ask easy questions, so this topic will probably be addressed again in the future.
The question? Drum roll please......"How does your prognosis change your day to day life, your thoughts and emotions?"
