For every independent person, asking for help is difficult. When faced with a life threatening condition it can add to your already existing feelings of helpLESSNESS. But I think that to ask for help is to also give someone else an opportunity to help someone. I read somewhere that this is a blessing, that this person is able to perform an act of kindness and support that they might otherwise never have. In almost 5 years of cancer treatment I’ve had to ask for help, and I was, at different times, so embarrassed to do so. But I discovered that people really want to help and that I needed to just get over…myself!
