Divya Par (Blood Cancer): Nothing Could Stop Me

Divya Par (Blood Cancer): Nothing Could Stop Me

Looking forward to something is very important. I love learning new things. I was a very silent girl, but now I smile much more than before.

Blood Cancer Diagnosis

In 1991, when I was just 11 years old, I had red spots on my hands and legs. I was excited about taking off from school and going for a check-up, but that excitement immediately dropped when the doctors said I had to get admitted. I was diagnosed with Acute MyeloidLeukemia. But I didn't know then that I hadBlood Cancer.

Blood Cancer Treatment

I underwentChemotherapyand bone marrow transplantation. I was among the first few people going for a bone marrow transplant. My sister was my donor, and I am very grateful to her. It took a long process.

My family was of great support to me. The Blood Cancer treatment was painful; my throat was sore, and I couldn't drink or eat. Sometimes, I would feel very lonely because I would see the entire world pass by, and I was sitting, not doing anything. My mom and uncle were there for me. My uncle used to come and play with me.

The students would go on school trips, but I was always left out because that was too much of a risk. That became the fighting drive I had to get through all those things and enjoy everything, and no one would stop me.

I had lovely hair, and I lost them completely, and to date, I have not gained it back. I have scars on my neck, and I was so hesitant to show these scars for a long time. Everyone used to ask me why that scar was there. I didn't open up much because I didn't want to talk about it; I used to go into my cocoon and not talk about it, but now I take it as a proud scar, which shows what I survived.

The doctors said I could not conceive, but my father decided that my education and self-dependency were more critical. It was a life-changing experience. I had a very focused mind. I did my Master's, and it made me an influential person. My parents were proud of me when I completed my Master's. I got so much into physical exercises and did Zumba, steppers, cycling, etc. I also did hiking, trekking, and everything I had always wanted to do. I worked in California for seven years. I met my husband there, who understands me and has been a blessing. He has helped me break all the exterior walls I had built.

I had a very fantastic career, but later I decided that I wanted to do something else. I am now doing craniosacral therapy and learning to become aYogainstructor. I want to reach out to people in a holistic way. I am also training to become an emotional freedom technique practitioner.

I feared a phenyl smell for many years because that would remind me of the hospital. I DROPPED IT when I realised it was a minor thing troubling me. It's a long process, but it all gets better.

I become asthmatic during seasonal changes and want an inhaler, but Sudarshan Kriya has helped me improve. My physical health has improved a lot. I am now a more fun-loving, independent person.

Acceptance is Essential

Accepting what has happened to you and accepting that it's not your fault is essential.

Accepting your state of time at a particular moment in your life is essential.

Firstly, I didn't know that it would be a long journey. I thought it would be just for a month or so. Later, I realized what was happening, and my sister was always with me, which helped me a lot.

Initially, I was happy that I was pampered and loved it so much. Later, I focused more on education and used to feel motivated whenever I got good grades. I was never afraid to explore. During my master's, I explored cooking and went to New Zealand, South America, and Europe. I love travelling, and when I was in the US, I have seen 40% of the National parks. I enjoyed everything because I waited stuck at a point for a very long time, and I didn't want to waste any opportunity to explore.

Parting Message

Have patience. It is painful, and you feel as if your whole life is disturbed but do not worry about it; you will get through this and do much better things. Hang in there; don't lose hope.
