Being Positive–The Cancer Curmudgeon Way

I know my posts tend to be, well, curmudgeon-y. I do find the pink power “you can do this” stuff a little distasteful. But that is not to say I mind all kinds of encouragement type of quotes or graphics or etc.

Here is something encouraging, almost like the “fight” language, for the cancer malcontents.

Oct 2010 diagnosed with Stage 3, HER2+ Breast Cancer. Completed treatment Jan 2012. Waaaaaay over pink. Applying punk rock sensibility to how I do cancer.

    1. Meow indeed! You know I am a pet sitter right. Am typing this with a Malti-poo in my lap right now–I once posted a cranky essay on here with a nice interruption of cat-on-keyboard language smack in the middle–bet that threw readers, “what does she mean by 34567890-dfghjkl?”
      So that is why some posts or even how I talk is animal oriented (During my every 3 weeks Herceptin treatments I considered myself as on the cancer center’s short leash, and now that I only go every 6 months for check ups, I’m on an extendable leash)! We must chat about your dogs sometime.


  1. I agree. There’s encouragement and then there’s encouragement. Love this kind! Awesome that you are a pet sitter.


    1. Pay is not great, but am better off now emotionally and mentally than I was a year ago. I know my sarcastic ways may not reflect that, but at least I got my fighting spirit back after leaving previous job. In the past I would’ve been too depressed to even care enough to have a blog.
