I have been doing a lot of reading lately since I have so much spare time (said in my best sarcastic voice) and I just had to share my thoughts on a book I finished last night. And I am not talking about the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy which I’ve been reading too and has taken my mind off cancer! What I do is read a fun book like Fifty Shades and than a serious book like The Anti-Cancer.
The book is called Walking on Eggshells and was given to me two weeks ago from one of the oncology social workers (Amy Sales) at Hopkins. She told me she wrote it for caregivers and handed it to me as a gift and said, “if you like it, pass it on” and well, I really liked it so I wanted to share. While Dan was at Hopkins that week, she came to see us a few times and gave me some great advice like needing to give myself a minimum of 60 minutes of day for “me time” which I have yet to do. I really needed this book. I sat down last night and started at 9 and finished at 10:15. It’s a quick and easy read and I highly recommend it to anyone in my shoes.
Thank you Amy for your gift. I will definitely need to refer back to it as we head further along on this journey.
Excuse me while I get back to Fifty Shades….I promise when I am done reading it I will update on our last 3 weeks of Dan being hospitalized. It’s been a long road so far and he comes home tomorrow. Woohoo!!
