      Although my life is consumed with my own cancer battle and the battle of my wife's cancer, I still try to find the good and funny things to help guide me thru this battle. I am sorry if I have offended anyone. I believe there is beauty in all things. May your days be bright and happy ones.

      My typical answer would have been kiss my a$$. I do say that a lot, but what the family member said was uncalled for and extremely rude. I may have even said same back to you. Everyones life is worth living!! I'm in an irritated mood right now, so this kind of XXX me off. I just don't understand some peoples insensitivity. Let them walk a mile in your shoes and see how well they can handle it. No need to feel sorry. This is a great place to vent and have a pity party.

      I think you just needed to vent, and this is a good place for it. Unfortunately, we've heard it from family, friends, even the medical profession. I guess everyone gets a little tired once in awhile. I can tell you that nobody wants to hear your problems, but as soon as they get cancer, they call you because you have had the experience. Then, they want to hear your story. I experienced it with a friend who had uterine cancer 1.5 years after me. She didn't have time for me when I was sick, but she sure had time when she was sick. I don't wish anyone bad luck, and for sure cancer. But, sometimes what goes around, comes around.

      I'm not sure that if I were in your shoes that I wouldn't be spending all my time feeling sorry for myself. This is awful. You are very strong to rise above all of this. Just remember that we are always here for you and though we are not real family, we might be the best family you ever had. That's cuz we ALWAYS care and we are ALWAYS here. I will pray for you and your wife that youu might find all the support you need within each other.
