Good morning, everyone... Dealing with cancer is hard, the physical toll as well as the emotional toll it takes on us is extreme.
I try to stay as positive as possible about staying on this earth for a long time and fighting every step of the way to make that happen. My goal and focus is on my living.
I get enough reality checks from blood test, scans and doctors visits to know that this is a battle.
What do you do in the following situations?
1. I have a long-time good friend that says all the wrong things. No matter how positive I try to be she talks to me like I am already a death's door. I find myself depressed after I talk to her. I try to understand that she is doing her best but my husband wants me to cut off ties with her because she brings me down so much. I feel like I am attending my own funeral when talking to her.
2. Second, what about family members that do a check-in by text but never show up or even call - just a stupid text?
I have other friends that are a very strong support group and that is what I surround myself with but what do I do about these people? Ignore them, cut them off, or just deal with them. I don't want to close off the world but I need positive thoughts from them.
