    Just when you think you have it bad, you read something like this that shows you that someone else always has it worse.

    Doctors in India recently operated on what they say could be the largest brain tumor in the world, according to news reports. The patient, 31-year-old Santlal Pal, had been living with the large mass on his head for three years before his surgery to remove the tumor, the BBC reported Thursday.

      There was someone on this site who once said that she thought many of us complained about our scars being too noticeable. She thought that perhaps we were imagining them worse then what they actually were.
      Then I remembered a older man I saw at the cancer hospital, he just had a hole where his nose used to be. Wonder what he might have replied to her?
      I hear stories here that amaze me & I wonder how they manage to survive.

      I agree, there is always someone with a little worse path than you. Molly, I remember sitting in the oncology waiting room thinking that I really should just get up and walk out, that I couldn't do this anymore. Then, the door would bang open from a hospital be being wheeled in. There would be someone in the bed that was barely more than a bag of bones, but there they were, keeping up the fight. And one little lady would make it a point to smile and say something nice to anyone she could see while lying in that bed. Those things will change your attitude in a minute. I wonder how man times this poor fella had somebody tap him and say something like, "hey you got something on your head". People can be mean.
