So many people have given me shit over the years for talking about my cancer. It’s too personal, too upsetting, too much. People go on about how I shouldn’t share my personal life – the ups, downs, losses, victories, struggles and successes.
Well this is part of why I do. I’ve always hoped my story might help someone feel less alone. I also share so V might have a record of what it was like for me as a widowed single mum who is also a cancer survivor. And I also post so friends and allies can get some insight to what people with lived experience are going through so they might know how to better support the people they care about.
So to all the people who gave me shit – gagf. I helped someone and all you did was bitch at me.
