    BGMAT sadly this is all normal. You never know how strong you are until “strong” is the only choice you have!

    I asked for strength. God gave me difficulties to make me
    strong.
    I asked for wisdom. God gave me problems to solve.
    I asked for prosperity. God gave me brawn and brain to
    work.
    I asked for courage. God gave me dangers to overcome.
    I asked for patience. God placed me in situations where I
    was forced to wait.
    I asked for love. God gave me troubled people to help.
    I asked for favors. God gave me opportunities.
    I received nothing I wanted. I received everything I needed.

    The things I hate since being diagnosed with CC are:
    Not having my husband with me (I lost him 5 yrs ago this month to cancer), to hold me when I feel unsecure.
    Not having someone to talk to about my fears, my feelings as I don’t want to burden my children, who already worry about me.
    Waiting to see in April if the chemo has worked and having to wait 2 weeks after the scan
    before I can see the oncologist (he will be away) for the results.
    Not knowing if the chemo side affects will get worse with each treatment.
    Yet when I read the other posts and how rough some people have it, I feel I have nothing to complain about.

    Scott, Those of us who have lost loved ones experience the same thing. People seem to avoid you as they are uncomfortable not knowing what to say or do. Yes it’s hard for them too, but it is harder for those dealing with cancer or the loss of a loved one. All they really need to do is be there for us.

    Pat, I totally agree with you. I hate seeing those commercials. They generally only take cases that make their statistics look good. Also they make sure you either have a very good insurance that they accept or the means to self pay. They are for profit. If you have a rare cancer, one that does not have a very good cure rate or do not have the means to pay it seems they can not help you. They also spend a whole lot on advertising. As you said, if you are that good, people know.

    HI everyone, I have been around here a while, I try to be positive, and not dwell on that which irritates me, but here I go… I hate the commercials that are for a cancer hospital that seems to feed on those with little hope, If you do go to their website which boasts “look at our survival statistics ” well yes, only for select cancers, not all. The highly advertised cancer hospital that seems more profitable than insurance. They have their own cable channel on my carrier and it just seems wrong or upsetting to me this never ending infomercial, some things don’t need to be sold, if you are that good, people will seek YOU out. There, I feel better now, I like this thread, Pat

    I don’t like that a good many people are uncomfortable when I run into them in public. I know that its hard for them too, but I just wish it wasn’t.

    Marion revived this topic, but thought it was fitting to bump it again to the top. Under rememberance section today, people are recognizing that today would have been Kris’s 41st birthday. Kris (devoncat) started this discussion, and it is a tribute/example of the special people the world has lost to this horrible disease. For those who haven’t explored in depth, you can click on a member name and pull up all their previous posts. I did this a while back for devoncat, and although she had already passed, I was touched by her life and spirit. I know I am not the only one who she has continued to touch.

    If possible Marion, can we “sticky” this topic?

    xoxo
    Catherine
