OK, after almost three weeks, I’ve worked out what to do.
For those who came in late: I’ve been asked to write a guest post on someone else’s blog. Now it’s not just any blog, it’s a special blog – Jodene’s “Project Me” blog. Jodene has written a post every day for the past 507 days. She has a ton of followers, she writes “With courage, consciousness & a sense of humour”, and she’s been a real inspiration to me in my little blogging adventure. But I haven’t been able to work out how to condense my story down to one thousand words.
Well, I now know what I’m going to do, and I’ve already started. I’m not going to tell my whole “cancer story”; instead, I’m going to write about the frustration of being a cancer patient. There’s been a lot written about the pain, the suffering, the trauma, and the horrors – and I certainly don’t underestimate them. But I haven’t read much about the frustration, the niggly little annoyances, the silly thoughts you have, and the mind-numbing conversations you find yourself participating in.
So, stand by for my post – The Impatient Patient – coming up soon…..
