I know its not really humor but
When I was told I had thyroid cancer I was told many things
"it is a good cancer"
I know each and every cancer has its good and bad points but all those quotes plus alot more came from medical professionals.
I know they were trying to make me feel better about it.
I have also heard there are other cancers that medical says are "good cancer"
so far the best comback I have come up with is "well if its such a good cancer I know where the frozen section is stored we can transplant it to you"
I just dont know what to say when they try to chear me up with its a good cancer though... I have many other serious medical issues that came up around the same time some caused by it and others may be related and some not related. but right now I am a 40 year old man who is basicaly un-embloyable for full time work (debilitating vertigo). and most insurance companies wont touch me without alot of exceptions to the pollicy.
Some days I need humor just to cope with this "good cancer" (oh I am a year out and clean scan so yea) but unless they can fix all the other medical issues that came up at the same time I am not going to be able to work again. I am being retired from the Military after 20 years service with the yep your broke comment.
to find work I will need to find a job I can do indoors where i dont have to do much moveing so data entry sounds like the ticket.
Today I need some humor.
