    Have you considered that your outlook on your entire cancer situation will affect how you view each of the pieces of your cancer journey?

      Being positive is huge in this journey. I haven’t gone through hardly anything compared to most of you, and I catch myself being negative. I have to really work at being positive some days. I have a very empathetic personality and sometimes I just have to back off when I start feeling responsible to take on the pain of others.
      This group helps me turn my attitude around more often than not.
      Someone came into my office today to bring me some scarves because she found out from someone that I had breast cancer. When she walked in, she looked so sad. She seemed almost disappointed that I hadn’t lost my hair or that I didn’t “look sick.” I felt bad for her, but I was very thankful she wanted to be so generous. She asked what she should do with these scarves. I told her I hated to take advantage and if she wanted to return them she could, or if she wanted me to pass them on, I would. On Monday, they are going to my nurse navigator and donated on behalf of my friend.
      We agreed it would be nice to have her gift go to someone who could use it.

      Most masks don't keep out all that many pathogens, but they do keep your spittle in. I don't wear a mask for me, I wear it for you. My cardiovascular surgeon wore a mask for a 4 hour surgery, took it off long enough to eat lunch, then put another one on for my 3 hour surgery. If she can do that, you can wear one for an hour to go shopping ~ or are you a narcissistic sissy?

      I am a highly compromised individual. But I too have rights. I should have the right to safely leave my apartment. When you don't wear me the right to leave go about. When people don't wear masks they are compromising my health and well being.

      It's all about Me Me Me, for too many people. They still don't understand that they can pass this thing along to lots of people without even knowing it. Just look at the infection rates skyrocketing and that should let you know that something has to change.
