    What are your favorite blogs written by cancer patients/survivors?

      I'm not much of a blog reader or writer. I tend to find them rambling and just not very interesting. They can be quite useful and cathartic for the writer, but often not that useful or interesting for anyone else. I think part of that rep has come from blogs being to easy and cheap to produce. Anyone can do it whether they are a good writer or not and whether they have anything useful or interesting to say or not. Again, that's great for the writer, but I just don't have the patience or time to wade through most of them.

      I have a blog and yes, it is useful and cathartic for me, but my friends have told me it has helped them understand what I am going through. I know some people from this site have read my blog and found ot helpful as well.
      There are a few I like to read, but most are not cancer related blogs :-)

      You are welcome to check my blog, http://frommyroad.blogspot.com, started in September 2009 to let my family know what was happening with treatment. They told me it was useful. I neither found it cathartic or interesting at the time, but it's interesting to look back on it now. For other breast cancer patients/survivors, I would only say that one person's experience with it, is not necessarily what yours will be--even with the same diagnosis and treatment. Just because I reacted in a particular way to a certain treatment or drug, does not mean that you will too.
