“I will never call myself a ‘cancer survivor’ because I think it devalues those who do not survive. There’s this whole mythology that people bravely battle their cancer and then they become ‘survivors.’ Well, the ones who don’t survive may be just as brave, just as courageous, wonderful people and I don’t feel that I have any leg up on them.” Barbara Ehrenreich  (via nprfreshair)

Opinion on “Cancer Awareness”

People are always trying to out do one another. “I care more than the rest of you, which makes me better than you.” This applies to these trends you see on social media recently having to do with cancer awareness. The girls with no makeup and the guys putting their genitals in some hosiery for awareness. I think people are already fairly aware of cancer’s existence. I’m quite aware myself, being a cancer patient, yet, I don’t feel the need to make people aware of my illness. In fact, I go out of my way to keep it as “dialed down” as possible. People treat me differently when they find out, like I might keel over in front of them suddenly, like I’m made of something more fragile than themselves.

I don’t see why people need to be more aware of this disease than they already are. I think they should be more aware about what they can do about cancer. I wonder if people are aware of preventative measures. I wonder if people are aware of how it affects those around a cancer patient, whether it be friends, loved ones, or co-workers. I wonder if people know that a positive attitude and environment goes a long way in getting through both physical and emotional turmoil that surrounds a diagnosis like this.

I guess my point to this rant is that, if you’re going to get involved in cancer awareness, make sure that you’re not just wasting everyone’s time with something that doesn’t mean a damn thing to those of us that suffer with it. Educate yourself about cancer and what you can do to stop its advances. That’s what I would call awareness.

“The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.” Unknown (via psych-facts)

I can get on board with this.

I feel that there should be more high-fives in my life.

To the people who are always asking “WHEN ARE YOU AND KATHERINE GONNA MAKE A BABY!?”

I love that “your friend’s dog” is almost zero effort and almost as much fun as a dragon.


A fairly accurate fun versus effort chart for pets.
