Oh well, at least it’s not a bad cancer.”

Very understanding of you . . .

Everyone gets tired.”

Really?  I’ve never felt like this before.

Buck up!  You’re fine!”

Even when I think I am, I’m really not.

Anything you need, just let me know!”

Really?  Could you be vaguer?

I don’t know how you do it . . . I can’t manage what I have to do.”

NEVER compare yourself to me . . . you have NO IDEA.

      Although it has been 6 years since my diagnosis and surgery, there still isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t feel this way. Even on the best of days. Thank you for putting into words that couldn’t be truer.

    This is great, in particular your line “even when I think I am I’m really not”! really hit home for me. So many times I’ve told myself and others how much better I am – I believe I’m 80% better now I said to everyone at work, then a little bit down the line I realise that I was actually much worse than I realised but NOW I’m better than I was, then a bit further down the line I realise that really I wasn’t, but NOW I am. It’s so difficult to tell what’s really going on and how well, or otherwise I really am on a day to day basis. And so it goes on, what a weird illness, in some ways no wonder others can’t understand it! Great to have this community where we can all relate!!
