Hi, folks. I'm a 28-year-old cancer survivor. Diagnosed with astrocytoma in 1987 and in remission officially since 1993. Being cancer-free doesn't mean much given my current physical state, however.
I know I'm not alone in feeling anger and resentment towards illness. I started a blog, now termed my "venting blog" where I've begun to release some of the pent-up emotions I've had.
Cancer presented itself to me when I was 5. It formally left me when I was 13. But the fallout from the battles fought in my boyhood have left me feeling worse than ever. I'm 28, but feel like 128. **** cancer.
Please check out my blog if you are hurting or know someone who is. Know you're not alone. And know that it's absolutely, perfectly okay to say **** YOU to a piece of **** disease.
