Yesterday I told our Dr. Beach, our Vet. Today I told the chiropractor. I figure these people will see me in a couple of months when I may not look like l do today (understatement.)
Is it that I am looking to avoid uncomfortable or awkward situations? Maybe, but I also believe that when people know what we are facing, they can support us in ways we may not even think of.
Heck, that's why I am blogging about cancer. The more we talk about things, the more we hope to gain some sort of undertanding.
We are fortunate. There is not the stigma of cancer that was common in the day when Susan G. Komen, and later her sister, Nancy Brinker, founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure were diagnosed with breast cancer. I remember reading a story that a neighbor of Susan G. Komen's crossed the street to avoid her on her street. What she really needed was a hug- I've been getting lots of them.
