Hey everyone, my father has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Doctors are not too sure about the specific details, but so far only Lung Cancer has been confirmed. I am not willing to follow SDAA (Shock, denial, anger, acceptance.) I have passed the stages of shock, denial, anger, but not acceptance. Acceptance has always been hard for me, whether if it was not doing well on a test, or missing an event. I don't know what isn't making me accept this. These couple of days, my heart seems like an anchor dropped on a sea floor, unable to see life in the light. The survival rate is very low. The hope in me has dropped dramatically. Video games have always relieved stress for me. I have been extremely busy lately helping my dad. I am afraid that when school starts, I won't be able to do well on tests, getting bad reputations from my teachers. I have always been good at academics, but stress can really get into the way. I probably should see a therapist, but why waste money when you have EMC.
