Lisa Quintana's thoughts and ideas about living with cancer. As a stage IV breast cancer survivor managing to stay alive since her stage IV diagnosis in 1997, and after living with Breast Cancer for 20 years...I thought I'd share my experiences.

Shaking your Fist at the Heavens
Recently, upon hearing some bad news about tumor markers from me, a friend said that I must be shaking my fist at the heavens. Hmm. No. And I can't think of when I' ve ever shaken my fist at the heavens. It wouldn't do any good, and it would have the ability to give me a sore arm. Plus, there are better things to do with your hands.
You can shake your fists at skyward if it makes you feel better. Just don't spend a lot of time and energy doing it...a little bit is OK...too much just makes you bitter.
