So I really need to vent. Went to visit the in laws. My father in law started talking about his friend who has stage IV cancer so me trying to show him that people could make it through that said that my cancer was stage IV (He lives far away so he did not see me during my treatments). Then he proceeds to tell me that my cancer was not stage IV because it did not spread. So then I was trying to explain to him that is did spread to many lymphnodes in my neck. My husband is lucky I love him because I just let it go. But I"m still really pissed about this. How dare someone tell me what type of cancer I had. He thinks he know everything he is just a selfish jerk. People have no idea what we go through and especially having oral cancer that our problems don't end after treatment. I still want to punch the man in the face. I couldn't believe that he was actually arguing with me about what cancer I had. I think I know loser. Anyone else have relatives who think that know so much that they know more than you? I really wish I would've told him off. At least I'm at home now and won't see or talk to him again for at least 6 months. I really want to say something to him but I don't know what to say that won't include using curse words and minor violence (just kidding, maybe not) How do you deal with ignorant people.
