i’m the one folks go to when their parents get diagnosed with cancer.
i guess i can be a comfort of sorts.
“my parents died of cancer and all i got was this lousy t-shirt”.
one of my closest home vixen’s mother was diagnose with cancer yesterday…
her mother is currently in the hospital awaiting testing.
she is a wreck about it.
she is very close to her mother.
she just lost two of her close friends to death last year as well.
i own the shirt to that too.
there isn’t much i can say to her.
“it’s going to be okay!”
“she will be fine.”
“they got it quick so they’ll be able to get her together soon.”
those could be all lies.
you just really don’t know.
things could be going well and looking like a full recovery.
there wasn’t much you could have said to me either.
the one thing i can do is just listen.
even if it sounded like pure crazy talk,
i’ve learned in these situations,
you just need to provide a shoulder and be a friend.
it’s better when the person has gone through it already.
they can provide an emotional cheat sheet.
that’s all i can really do.
she has to meet with to the doctors tomorrow so she’ll keep me posted.
she has already been on google sniffing around.
that’s never good.
she’s mentally already planning the funeral.
2018 is starting off so weird.
i’m really not trying to font “bad”,
so i used “weird” instead.
and my own issues,
i’m completely drained today.
my resources are tapped at the moment.
all i want to do is sleep and wake up to the sun being out again.
