BanglaHunt Desk: Now is the time of mourning in Bollywood. Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor have had two successive Indrapatans in Sinejagat. Unfortunately, neither of them could avoid the sight of cancer. However, there are examples in Bollywood of losing cancer and returning to life with a smile. Popular actress Sonali Bendre is one of them.
Sonali was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. From then on the life-and-death struggle began. In the end, he lost to cancer and won. In a recent interview with a newspaper, Sonali told the story of that fight. The actress said everything about her treatment, her husband Goldie Behel's constant presence.
In Sonali's words, “I am fine now, I am healthy. However, this lockdown has not changed much in my life because I have been in quarantine for the last two years. But at that time many people came to meet me. That's what I miss now. ”
Sonali also expressed regret over not being able to meet her parents now. He also thanked the fans for their good wishes. Due to their good wishes, he has been able to return healthy, said the actress.

“I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me. ” – Cheryl Strayed, Wild. Over the past couple of months, I have had good days and bad ones. There have been days when I’ve been so exhausted and in so much pain that even lifting a finger hurt. I feel like sometimes it’s a cycle… one that starts off with physical pain and leads to mental and emotional pain. The bad days have been many… Post chemo, post-surgery and the like… where even just laughing hurts. Sometimes it felt like it took everything I’ve had to push past it… a minute to minute battle with myself. I got through it knowing that even though I was fighting a long drawn out, draining battle… it was one that was worth the fight. It’s important to remember that we’re allowed to have those bad days. Forcing yourself to be happy and cheerful all the time serves no purpose. Who are we being fake and putting on an act for? I allowed myself to cry, to feel the pain, to indulge in self-pity… for a short while. Only you know what you’re going through and it’s fine to accept it. Emotions aren’t wrong. Feeling negative emotions isn’t wrong. But after a point, identify it, recognize it and refuse to let it control your life. It takes an immense amount of self-care to get out of that zone. Sleep always helps, or having my favorite smoothie after chemo, or just talking to my son. For now, as my treatment continues… my visual focus remains to just get better and get back home. It’s yet another test… Student all my life… Learning all my life… #OneDayAtATime ?: rissrishtibehlarya
