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. Fuck 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 FUCK YOU to a piece of shit disease.
