教育杂谈

   I will never forget that Tuesday afternoon in the doctor's office.I had been feeling sick for a long time and my mum had taken me to hospital to have me examined.Two weeks ago,Dr Richards asked me a great many questions and took samples of my blood.Now,he was looking at mum and me across his desk and there was a sad look in his eyes.I knew that the news was bad.Dr Richards told me that the test results showed that I was suffering from a serious disease."It is cancer,"he said.I did not know much about cancer then,but I had heard that it was an incurable disease.Mum held my hand and I saw that she was crying.I remember having an empty feeling in my stomach and thinking that my life was going to end.
  I was wrong.This was only the beginning.Cancer,Dr Richards explained,can be treated.Cancer is a disease that begins in cells.There are many types of cells in the body and each has a special function.In a healthy body,cells grow and divide to produce new cells only when it is necessary.In my body,the production of cells is disrupted.Cells either divide too fast or at the wrong time,making it difficult for the body to function properly,Nobody knows why some people get cancer and others do not.Doctors do know that cancer is not caused by injury and is not contagious-it does not spread from one person to another.
  The next year was painful and difficult for me and my family.Like many people with cancer,I had to be treated with radiation followed by treatment with chemicals.The treatment made me sick.Very sick.There were days when I wished that I were dead so that I would not have to feel so sick.My family and friends were wonderful.They helped me find the strength I needed to recover and they kept me from feeling sad and lonely.Dr Richards and the others at the hospital told me that I was a fighter and that I could win.They were right.The treatment was successful and I was able to go home after exactly fourteen months,two days and six hours in hospital.
  Two years have passed since that day in Dr Richard's office and my life has not yet ended.On the contrary,I now feel as if that was when my life really began.I have been living with cancer for two years and I plan to keep living with it for a long,long time.Yes,my life has changed.The cancer in my body has been defeated for the moment,but I know that I will never be completely free from it.It can come back at any time and the struggle will never end.I now think of my cancer as a gift.It taught me an important lesson about life.Living with cancer has made me realise how precious life is and how important it is for us to take every chance to live life to the fullest.Every day is a new opportunity,and I have learnt to appreciate every minute of each day.
译文:   确诊患有癌症:在那一天,我的生命结束...又重新开始!
  我永远也不会忘记那个星期二下午在医生诊所发生的事情。很长时间以来我一直感到不适,妈妈带我到去医院做检查。两周前,理查德医生问了我很多问题,并采集了我的血样。现在,他坐在对面,看着妈妈和我,眼神悲伤。理查德医生告诉我实验结果表明我得了一种很严重的疾病,“是癌症,”他说。那时我对癌症不是很了解,但听说过它是一种不治之症。妈妈抓住我的手,我看见她在哭。我记得心里是一种空荡荡的感觉,认为我的生命即将结束。
  我是错的,这仅仅是开始。理查德医生解释说癌症是可以治疗的。癌症是一种从细胞开始发展的一种疾病。人体内有有许多种类的细胞,每种细胞都有其特殊的功能。在健康人的体内,只有在必要的时候,细胞才成长分裂并产生新的细胞。在我的体内,细胞的产生是混乱的。细胞要么分裂太快,要么在不恰当的时候分裂,使得身体难以正常运转。没有人知道为什么一些人的癌症,而另一些人不患这种病。医生们知道癌症并不是由创伤引起的,也不是由传染引起的-它不会从一个人身上传染到另一个人的身上。
  第二年对我和我的家人来说是很痛苦难熬的、就像许多癌症患者一样,我不得不首先接受放疗,再接受化疗。治疗过程是我感到难受,非常的难受。在那些日子里,我但愿死去,以便我不会受到这么大的痛苦。我家人和朋友非常关心我,他们帮助我获得了康复时说需要的力量并且没有是我感到悲伤和孤独。理查德医生和医院里的其他医生告诉我说我是一名斗士,我会战胜疾病。他们是对的,治疗很成功,住院整整14个月2天6个小时之后,我能够出院回家。
  自从那天在理查德医生诊所的事情已经过了两年的时间,但我的生命并没有结束,相反,我现在觉得我的生命才真正开始。我已经与癌症共存两年的时间,并且我打算与之长久共存。是的,我的生活有了变化。我体内的癌症暂时受到控制,但我知道我永远也不会真正地摆脱它。它随时都会复发,并且斗争将永远也不会结束。现在我把癌症看成是一件礼物。它教会了我人生重要的一课,与癌症共存使我了解到生命是多么的宝贵,对我来说抓住每个机遇充实生活是多么的重要。每一天都是一此新的机遇,我已经学会了欣赏每一天的每一分中。
