Together we will beat cancer

So this morning I had to drive into town for a bra fitting.  I nearly made it to the car park but in the end had to pull over just behind it to be sick (I keep medical grade sick bags on me).  It was no biggy, I had nothing in my stomach so I was vomiting entirely inoffensive white foam.

Was digusted to then see some suited man in his 40s walk past staring and laughing at me.  Not that it's ever funny when someone is sick but I had a head scarf on so fairly high chance I'm ill in some way.

I've heard stories of cruelty to people with cancer but had never experienced it myself.  What is wrong with people?

If I had to choose between cancer and being cruel like him...

All it did was make me more anxious and prolong the wretching Sad

That is unbelievable - I can’t imagine how screwed up one must be to do such a thing. So sorry this happened to you.

I can understand just how it feels.

I have neighbours either side of me that give me hassle.

One side a newish neighbour has killed all one side of my rear garden plants & told me I need his permission to plant on that side of my garden which he dosn't give.

I have lived here for 28 years  he was not here when I started doing my garden & at the end of the day its my property bought & paid for.

The other side throws their garden rubbish into my garden over my fence,my daughter puts out my recycling bins when she comes at weekends  they tip them right outside my front door.

So now I don't recycle.

Thank god the houshold rubbish in in a wheelie bin.

Best wishes to all x

Some people just have no common decency. 

Hope it didn't ruin your day too much and you got the bra you needed. 

Got to try and think he's just a one off as most people will sympathise or offer to help in some way

I wish there had been some substance to the vomit (it was just white foam) cause then I'd have got out and done it over his shoes Laugh

Thank you.  I've heard of much worse happening to people, I do wonder what is wrong with some people!

Dear TwinTwo, some people are so insensitive, but many more are so kind, put this horrible man out of your mind, I read your posts and the help you give others, you are obviously a gorgeous kind person so cannot contemplate others being so rude.  Just the other day a friend of long standing but who I don't see often asked how my husband was, he's got stage 4 lung cancer I answered gently, she looked me up and down and said, well you're looking really good on it!  You could have knocked me over with a feather, so a rude man isn't worth your breath.  Keep posting you are so strong.  Love Carol x

Thanks Carol,

So sorry about your husband, I hope you're getting as much quality time together as you can.  Can't believe what that woman said to you, but I guess sometimes people just open their mouth cause and words tumble out Shocked

Hi. I'm so sorry to read this, people are so disrespectful. That's just disgusting and completely wrong!

My brother went through a similar situation a few months after he was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) back in 2017. 

He was very jaundice and his skin was yellow and somebody said to him in the street "You look like you should be on the Simpsons". He passed away six months ago but that comment has always stuck with me. 

All of this is hard enough without people doing and saying absoutely disgusting things

Take care

So sorry that you had to experience that.

Some people have no sense of decency, but luckily he is in a minority 

Keep strong and try to stay positive ( i know easier said than done)
