I have finished my four treatments of AC and have two more of four of Taxol to go--I can not wait for this part of the treatment to end. I don't know if its me, but when people feel compeled to say something to me about my cancer, I'm amazed at how insensative they can be. Lately, it has been people telling me "you know, your hair will grow back in curly" or "Breast cancer? People don't really die from that anymore." Why do they feel the need to comment on my condition as if they are experts? I'm sure others have heard worse things.

Thanks, Pennyone Log in to post a reply

Cif - "everyone else I know that had chemo continued to work full time, you do not need disability"

I honestly want to kick everyone who says that to me. Chemo is hard. It is harder on some people than others. My chemo has been bearable mostly, but even so, it's made me a little wobbly and I've had a couple of almost-falls, muscle weakness, forgetfulness (this is a big one - I caught myself almost putting the ice cream sandwiches in the pantry!), nausea of course, mine's been tough, and the dreaded "sudden naptimes" where you just sit down for a few minutes and fall asleep for hours... none of that stuff would fly at work! If I worked in an office, I'd be at work for three days (if that) and get sent home with a stern order to wait until I felt better before returning! (But I work from home, so, yeah.)

But I, too, get the comments from people who say "You're taking time off from work during chemo? But it's only chemo!"

Makes me want to take them to get some chemo and see just how great they feel afterwards...

CrawfordsMommy - Before DX, I was a healthy, half way decent looking 43 year old women. I had a career and was in what I felt was on my way to being in the best shape of my life.

Then the bomb went off and F@!# ME! I did NOT and could NOT work through chemo. Really??? F@!# That! There were days when I couldn't get out of bed. Between doctors appointments, lab appointments, actual chemo infusions, blood transfusions and all of the other bullshit - NO F@!#ing WAY I WAS GOING TO WORK!!!

I would never wish this shit on anyone....but there are times and there are people that I look at with there stupid comments and I just think....hmmmm....hope you don't end up like me!!! I never thought I would end up like me...so it can happen to anyone!!!

IT MAKES ME SO MAD!!!!! (UGH!!!!!!)

BTW...I'm thinking about changing my profie pic to reflect who I am now (I look like you!) The person in my profile pic no longer exists.

Hanley50 - I hear ya!!! I was 45, looking and feeling great, living a healthy lifestyle and in great shape, doing that whole self-improvement thing... then up pops that stupid lump... now I'm lazy, bald, outta shape and poor! I was like, "Really? Breast cancer? Is this some kind of joke- Do I have to do all this treatment crap NOW?" I have been useless and unable to work throughout most of my treatment. It affects us all differently. I've definitely had long strings of "not EVEN getting out of bed" days. I will definitely be more sympathetic to anyone with cancer in the future... I feel like I got off light only being stage 2A (at least thus far; I'm fully aware that anyone ANYONE can have a recurrence at any time)... oh, and now it's October! Had someone ask me at the register yesterday if I wanted to donate to breast cancer awareness! I shot her a pointed look and said I'm plenty aware of BC thank you very much!

Some days I look at my driver's license picture (good complexion, pretty hair, actual eyebrows, confident smile, no weird steroid bloating or sunken cheeks, etc.) and I just want to CRY. It was taken 1 month before diagnosis and I looked like a totally different person than I do now. Chemo wrecked my face and I'm disgusted to look at myself in the mirror right now.

I was at a dinner party, while I was going through chemo..so I barely dragged myself there. One guest told a joke and the punchline was "at least you don't have cancer". I was sitting right next to him. Nobody laughed, but nobody called him in it either.

This is just total crap how y'all are being treated...remove those people from your life, if you can, at least while you are dealing with cancer.

I have had several health issues prior to this disease...and you never can really tell if someone is a genuine friend until something like this happens. I heard of backstabbing behind my back within a women's club of which I was a causal member, joined to meet new people in the town, play bridge, etc. Said nothing to them about my knowledge of said rumors..... but when their health took a turn for the worse....well, my higher spiritual self decided the "Hell with it" and returned the favor the first chance that I got! Told them all they did was talk about "their" health issues and that it made plenty of people "uncomfortable hearing about it all the time" suffice it to say they problems were not cancer

Oh well, what goes around, comes back around! I had several gals tell me " Too- shay!" Well deserved!

I had long hair when I was diagnosed, and I got it cut very short right before I started chemo to make it less traumatic when it started to fall out (although getting it cut was a trauma in itself). Anyhow, the short cut looked cute, but it didn't feel like me. Two days before Christmas, the hair loss had gotten bad enough that I shaved my head and switched to my wig, which essentially looks just like my hair did before I cut it. Still, I wasn't used to wearing the wig and very new at styling it and was really self conscious.

When I walked into my in-laws' house on Christmas, my mother-in-law said she was disappointed that I had the wig instead of the short hair because the short hair had looked so cute in the pictures and had really suited me.

OK, so not as bad as some of the stuff I've read on here, but still. Really??

A year later, I told her I had cancer. She hasnt been by to even talk.. one day she randomly text..She told me about others that had been though the fight of cancer, that it would be hard and than asked to borrow my kayaks since she figured I wldnt be using them. Maybe she can't deal with this, but I have to and it's without her.
