Seven years ago at the end of my radiation & chemo, well-meaning friends would remark that "now you're cured" as if it were something I didn't have to concern myself with any more. Cancer is a long-term condition that it's possible to manage, temporarily remove, and put into remission. Dealing with it is like losing weight - not a temporary fix, but a lifestyle commitment to maintain a healthy body.

During the diagnostic phase of my cancer battle I said something about 'the big C". My sister, who means well said, "you don't have big C cancer you have little C cancer."

It set me off. Just what EXACTLY is little C cancer?!?!?!

She was trying to make me feel better about what I was facing but to me it was like she wasn't giving me credit somehow for what I was going through.

so what's the thing that someone said to you that you just wanted to bite their head off for?
