3 Statements I’m Starting to Hate

1. Everything will be alright.
I know it’s meant to be reassuring but when you’ve run so long and hard without a finish line in sight, you will definitely be left with doubts about being able to endure until such time that you cross the line and everything’s okay.

2. Cancer is caused by an unhealthy diet and lifestyle.
I personally know and have seen teenagers who eat unhealthy, do some drugs, and drink to excess and they don’t have cancer.

3. Be Strong
This is definitely easier said than done. When you go for a scan and are told that your child has refractory disease (new cancer growth), though the mind tells you to be strong, the heart struggles with it.

So, there. I know people mean well but maybe I just need to hear something new. C’mon, people, be a bit more original and creative. Lol

  1. my hodgkin is in remission … and people are just trying to be nice ,but they do not know how to react so they say stupid shit like this. I’ve been there I wanted to kick their faces in…I was in so much pain I couldn’t see straight and this asshole tells me to be strog… WELL FUCK YOU !!! But you know what? The anger and the pain …those things made strong… Everyday I told myself I HAVE TO DO THIS… It became my mantra. The things is that you don’t need to be strog all the time… trust me…I know… once in awhile you could break down and cry your eyes of…and after that you just get this feeling of calmness.
    And you do not have to explain your struggle to anyone. You just have to do what ever it is in your power to do to just keep sane in all this insanity that is happening to you.
    I am sorry for my poor enghlish.

    • Thank you @ralucagirlwiththebook. You know exactly what I’m talking about. Your English is fine 🙂 I’m happy for your remission. And you’re right, it’s okay to sometimes break down and cry!
