Oh dear I think I have been horribly guilty of mentioning staying positive to people in the past and now I will learn how it feels I suppose ... sorry everyone I didnt realise how stupid that was but now obviously I do but its too late to take it back
This thread is so helpful and uplifting
I know that the line that I hear every day at work is going to really hurt next week when I return to work. I work with the elderly and they very often say to me 'Dont get old love' they are simply expressing how hard it is having aches and pains etc but suddenly that statement is going to really hit home
They will not know of course that I have cancer but I am not sure what if anything to say.
In the past I just quipped well I will try but the alternative isnt much fun either
somehow I dont think I can manage to just say that now
