I think that people who have experienced this shouldn't be made to feel that they can't be truthful about their feelings in case they're not being positive and then are less likely to make it. I want to feel that I can be positive some days, and wail and cry and complain on others. I hope and pray that I will be one of the lucky ones. But if I'm not, then I haven't lost a battle, or my spirit. I can still have been brave and positive. But I will simply have been unlucky.
And, who knows, with all the developments in cancer treatments, maybe it will be even more of us that can share our hatred of the language of cancer in five years' time. Even better, perhaps it will be such a distant memory that we won't even notice!
