• Do you get tired of those people who constantly tell you that there is a cure already but "big pharma" won't let it out.

    Do you get tired of those people who constantly tell you that there is a cure already but "big pharma" won't let it out.

    Or those that say blueberry juice will do it, or orange peels combined with smoking pot at the same time? I just usually shake my head and grunt at them, but sometimes I will tell them how stupid something sounds. I don't need to hear that crap when right now all I want to do is get to the bathroom before I hurl on the floor!

      Why anyone would say these things to someone who is suffering through the $%#% of cancer treatments has always baffled me. This is somehow supposed to make us feel better????? Even if it were true this is in no way a comforting statement. It IS stupid and ignorant but some people just don't know how to react when they hear that taboo word -CANCER.

      I've dealth with this stuff for 32 years. There's always someone who has a "friend" or Aunt/Uncle that has been taking XYZ powder from China (because it's not approved in the US, because big pharma won't let them) who has been doing great with it. It must work because they haven't been diagnosed with cancer! I stand stunned when I hear that. Shake my head and walk away.

      I agree that it is very, very frustrating.
