    YKYACP when you lose some previously stubborn weight you gained back after cancer year, and instead of saying "Alright, hot damn!" you go "Shit, NOW what?"

    YKYACP when you have everything needed for any hair eventuality (no hair, thin hair, short hair, longer hair) and then realize you don't know what to do with newly curly hair (side effect du jour).

    When you use the term “side effect du jour".

    When the nurse In the lab can't find a betadine swab and you produce a packet for her from your tote bag.

    When a doctor says, “What are you doing? Eating healthy? Don't you like ice cream?" (Talking about unwanted weight loss.)

    YKYAACP: When the pharmacist writes a big cheerful "Happy Birthday!" on your ondansetron prescription

    When you come downstairs and loudly and proudly announce, "I pooped!" only to realize you sound like a toddler....

    When your BOSS asks to rub your hair...

    YKYACPW you are asked the COVID screening questions on entrance to every hospital and you answer "Have you felt feverish in the last 24 hours?" with "Only about 12 times an hour."

    And your answers to all the other questions are positive too :D

    Cancerchondria and it's kissing cousin internetochondria. That's when you search your (usually mild) symptom on the internet and find you're suffering from some rare disease that only four people in history have ever had.😏 Unfortunately I know a number of people with this malady.

    Ykyacp when you take a medication to battle the side effects of another medication, which was itself prescribed to help with the side effects of yet another medication. Then you forget what you were taking the initial med for in the first place 🤔

    You know you are a cancer patient when you don't have the strength in your arm to blow wave your own hair becuse the tumor is pressing on your nerves and then it hits you... I won't have this problem when my treatment starts again-

    YKYACP when your hairless nose drips so much and so often that every pocket and purse you own have wadded up tissues in them.
