So the whole “I have cancer” thing is going pretty well. I am almost certainly going to be just fine after the next surgery (still not scheduled for certain), and am surrounded by loving family right now. On the whole, I am feeling quite upbeat and accepting of the whole situation. As Maverick put it, it will be “concentrated misery” which will be over soon (Maverick like TopGun not Sarah P.).
There is just one thing that is bothering me a little. I feel sad and a little angry when people don’t acknowledge what I’ve told them. That I am sick, and I will get better. I’m not sure what I think of this reaction, because in some ways I think, suck it up, you are going to get through this even if a few people you consider friends can’t think up a way to tell you they hope you will be okay. On the other hand, this sucks, and my friends acknowledging that this is a hard patch is very comforting.
So am I allowed to be downhearted that some friends have just totally ignored my news, even though they said they wanted to know the results? How hard is it to say “That sucks, I hope you get better soon.”? Or am I just being morbidly sensitive?
