Every so often I repeat this as it may be helpful for newer patients. When good intentioned people tell you not to worry because any one of us could be hit by a bus and die today, ask them this. "When is the last time you worried about being hit by a bus?" After they say "Never", ask them if they have ever had a song stuck in their head that they couldn't get out. After they say "Yes", tell them, "That is what it is like living with cancer. Every day. All day." They begin to get a better idea of what we endure.
