Re: Coping With Anger

This was a good one. Anger is not only for the person going through the cancer but the caregivers and loved ones too. I am stuck at the anger point right now.....and what makes me the angriest is mowing the stupid yard...silly thing to get so angry about but there it is. I see a gal every week (or as close as possible) as she has been a tremendous help.
It was good to know that it's okay and part of the whole process.

Re: Coping With Anger

Kris put on those pink boxing gloves and let the anger out. Don't laugh but I would get in the car, put on Mama Mia and sing my heart out, singing is good for you. I would drive around singing at the top of my lungs and go home feeling hoarse but refreshed.  Mmmmm maybe that is why they asked us to move!  JK  LOL

Re: Coping With Anger

Kris...Funny but not funny to you.  I hear you.  Always mowed the yard, but there are so many other tasks I did not want to take on. 
Still, you made me laugh.

Re: Coping With Anger

Lainy - It's funny that you talk about driving and singing....I do that a lot. I am a terrible singer expect when it's in the car....my family always knows when I had a bad day when the can hear the music when I pull in the driveway. They used to run and hide.

Marion - It really is funny about mowing the lawn....it's not like Mark ever mowed it except when we had a rider....we always had the kids do it before. We have a big yard about 1/2 an acre and a push mower. There are so many other things to get angry about....all those projects like the leaky bath tub I should get upset about but I just finish them and move on....but the lawn is sure to drive me to tears every time. I finally told him the other day when he caught me crying after I mowed it. I think it made him really think about how much I have taken on. I think he is trying harder to do the things he can now.
