Roberta Aberle - October 2014
Roberta Aberle, a member of Mylifeline.org, recently posted a blog entry on working during her cancer diagnosis and treatment. In it she describes how important work is to her, as well as the numerous challenges she's encountered in simultaneously trying to maintain her career and manage her cancer — including the treatment side effects:
“I need, no, require, the distraction and normalcy, but I can never predict what my body and mind choose to feel on any given day.
I can be right in the middle of crafting an e-mail and go entirely blank on the topic or the purpose.
I freeze in a presentation or meeting.
I take notes that I cannot decipher an hour later.
I make errors that I would never have made a year ago.
All due to the side effects of treatment and the preoccupation with a disease that can take every ounce of your energy to beat.”
Aberle goes on to discuss her passion for her work, how highly she values it, and how she must continue to find ways to modify her routine and expectations in order to keep working while she battles cancer.
