I hear a lot of complaints from Cancer patients and Caregivers about how “people” don’t understand! Often they are either sad or angry about this revelation in their relationships. It saddens me, of course, with everything they are going through, to have this added point of view and undesired situation.
But here’s the thing… The only way they can TRULY understand is if they too have cancer or are caring for someone who does (at least that is the prevailing view with many cancer patients). Is this something that you really would wish on your friends and family?
