My sister was diagnosed with uterine cancer today.
I think it’s still really early, so there’s a good chance she’ll be fine. But still. Cancer is cancer.
Another thing they said was that she needs to lose weight because of the things they’re going to need to do will require anesthesia and while she’s overweight and has high blood pressure, she’s at a higher risk of things going wrong. So now she’s like, yeah! I need to workout! But of course, she doesn’t go to me. She just decides she needs a treadmill. I recommended that she just try walking outside first, and she’s like, NO. I WANT A TREADMILL I HATE WALKING OUTSIDE. My family doesn’t have the means for a treadmill, she’s having serious issues, and she’s still refusing to use the means that are readily available to her. And I’ve offered to everyone in my family- not just her, that if they’re truly serious about wanting to workout and lose weight and stuff, I’ll help them. I’m no expert, but I’d like to believe I do know my way around a gym and kitchen. But I feel like even with what is going on she still doesn’t care about her health that much. I feel like if I was in some kind of dire situation where I have the power to change things, I would work for that without waiting for the convenience. I just wish there was more I could do.
