A couple of people I follow on Tumblr have posted excellent pieces recently:
A woman on her second go round with cancer, this time ovarian, explains in detail why that hope-and-be-positive shit can annoy some of us with cancer: Think Positive!
Pay attention when she says:
“I feel like I’m not allowed to express my pain or sorrow or petulance or anger and it is a suffocating feeling. “
“Nobody likes a cancerwriter who isn’t shitting sunshine all the livelong day. Nope, everybody wants a feel-good story.”
Love, love, love the part of shitting sunshine, I’m sure I can’t be accused of that, LOL!

Hope my posts help you as you start out. As you know I prefer reality, not a pinkwashed view. By facing reality unflinchingly, we may move forward and reduce the grip of cancer.
