Worth Reading

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. “

And

“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!

And

Greg with Stage 4 prostate cancer: Thoughts of Death and Life

I’m a selfish person, and I don’t care about that. I don’t want to miss you yet Greg.
