I am constantly surprised by the surprise that people show when they meet me. Most who have heard about my situation, seem to be amazed that I am walking around, doing normal things and looking like me. In fact one of my close and good friends commented the other day that I was looking ‘trim’ and whilst that may be an exaggeration (a welcome one) I don’t and haven’t ever thought of myself as being ill.
I am having treatment for cancer, my treatment for bowel cancer has happened and I am now willingly undergoing treatment for cancer. I AM NOT ILL OR UNWELL! I am not in pain, never really have been and I certainly don’t view myself as being sick. Some people seem to be surprised by this, as I think they expect me to be a withered, sallow soul, hobbling around clutching my bum hole. Well, I am afraid that’s not me.
I am perky and upbeat some of the time, grumpy and cantankerous for a reasonable amount of the time and pretty normal for the rest of the time. I might even be a little more ‘trim’ than I was a few weeks back.
Enjoy the music.
