Preview_ringing_in_my_ears

I kind of feel this way with the ringing in my ears. It's constant. Probably 70% of the time. Does anyone else get this happening?

Do you tell people not to hug you since you've had cancer?

Preview_tell_me_everything_you_told_the_nurse

This made me laugh! It's so true, every time I tell the Nurse that weighs me and takes my blood pressure a little bit, then in the exam room another nurse comes in asking some of the same, and a little more, then sometimes a resident comes in and does a complete exam and asks all the questions, followed by the Doctor who you have to rewind it all to. It's funny, sometimes aggravating, but really, I don't mind. I guess if they ask the same question 4 times they will get the answer right.

After every bad or rough day, I always tell myself that there's always tomorrow!

Ask anyone with thyroid cancer if they think we got the "good" cancer and I'm sure they will say, Uhh, NO!

I know there are other cancers that are referred to as "the good cancer" to get. But it drives me crazy when I hear this. We all know there are NO GOOD CANCERS! Maybe it's because they are trying to make you feel good, like saying well, at least it's not lung cancer or pancreatic cancer. That doesn't make me feel better at all and its insensitive to those with that kind of cancer.

Have you heard this before for your type of cancer?

I get tired of negative people always posting what they can find wrong about everything. You know the type, they can't see the good in anything but are quick to point out what's wrong with anything or anybody. Those people will also start telling me how bad chemo is and all of the side effects and long term damage it's going to do to me. I'm just sick of it! *Ranting over, thank you*

This is how I feel most of the time, don't try to save me or take over my life while I'm fighting, just be there with me while I do it! But, I do appreciate everyone helping me along the way with the little things that become big things when we are down.

I get tired of people looking at me with pity and saying they will pray for me, like they think I don't have much time left! I'm not planning on going anywhere, anytime soon!

This says "take this dove", I'm pretty sure that's a hummingbird, still, I like the sentiment.
