Some nights I
wake from a bad nightmare about a fast approaching storm . In this
dream, many tornadoes are formed from the dark frightening clouds. Running from the awesome, destructive power of
these tornadoes, I never managed to get away. The tornadoes hurl
me up much
like Dorothy in the movie Wizard of Oz.
Why do I have these frightening nightmares? Reflecting on
my real life, I feel powerless against breast cancer. Like breast
cancer, I feel powerless towards the tornadoes in my dream. The
awesome power of tornadoes is to be respected.
Knowing what to do when a tornado is
sighted is the key that will protect us harm.
Personal note: Please do your monthly
self breast exams and schedule yearly mammograms.
