Bumped into someone I know (let's call her X) the other day, and she made it pretty clear, via her (lack of) words and actions, that she's cross with me. Sometimes I feel that people are nice to me simply because of my circumstances. So although I was irritated at X's actions, I was grateful that she had been true to her feelings and had not compromised them simply because I'm ill.
I want people to treat me the same way, as much as possible. I know this can sometimes be difficult because the word cancer carries with it so much weight, and thus people can't help themselves. However it would be best for everyone all around if we all stayed true to our feelings. I am still after all, the same person - balder and a bit fatter on the outside but pretty much the same on the inside. Which means that although I may be physically weaker (this is grudgingly said) I am certainly still strong enough to fight my own battles.
