Does it bother you when you are asked are told"You don't act like a cancer patient"?
I have been told that i don't act like i have cancer and i know others who have been told the same thing. I was wondering if that has ever happened to you, and if so, how does that make you feel?

♥♥Manda ♥♥
No, it doesn't bother me a bit seeing as I don't have cancer.

No one calls me or tells me anything about the way I act. If I tell them I've had brain cancer, they just say, you can't tell or ask me questions about it that I don't mind answering. And you can't tell unless you see the side of my head that was cut open and had radiation to. Besides telling someone I had cancer got me out of a speeding ticket and got me a discount at the dentist.

Yes, that happened to me. People expected me to cry all the time, but I had to work and try to forget about it or else it would be too depressing. BUT the flip side was that when I was in a bad mood about it, people would say to me, "Geez, you're crabby today." You just can't please 'em! Put yourself and your health first, and the people who are truly your friends will stick by you and understand your ups and downs.

To answer how did it make me feel when I was asked that, well, I got angry. How did people expect me to act? This is when you find out who your true friends are.

I was told the same thing when I had cancer. Made me feel great. It also made me feel everything was ok.

Mr. Sunshine
The longer you deal with cancer the more you realize people really do not know what to say. It doesn't bother me. You do get a lot of cheap compliments such as "you look great" without the added for someone with cancer.

Oh Sandra honey, you have hit on one of my pet peeves.

I have brain cancer and people are surprised when I tell them that. They sometimes back away (like it's contagious) or they just look at me and say, "but you LOOK okay?!!!" Even my parents still do it and I'm 48!!!! My husband occasionally has to sit people down and and remind them that just because you can't see my scars (thank you Dr. Lee!) and because I have all my hair, doesn't mean that I am okay.

I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard that. I'm going to start responding with "but you don't look stupid"!

I'm still being told it, mainly because I'm not having terribly bad side effects (still tired, but no hair loss, no nausea, etc.). I don't feel like a "cancer patient," I just feel like me with one more pain in the a** disease.

No it doesn't bother me at all. Why should cancer patients "act a certain way?" I personally love to live life to it's fullest, and refuse to let my cancer kick me down. So that statement doesn't bother me in the slightest.

NO it has NOT happened to me, as I don't have Cancer.
However, My Mother did.
Up until about three weeks before she died of stomach cancer, she was even attending the Casino.
NO she didn't bet heavy.It was just an enjoyable outing for pensioners.

She though had been having blood transfusions ans i think that was what kept her going.
THEN, doctors decided at the hospital that since her condition was Terminal and blood bank supplies were low at the time,,they decided to "pull the plug"..stop transfusions.

Though there was some family protest, we didn't get anywhere and 3 weeks later mum died. Maybe she didn't feel too much as she was then on a Morphine drip. BUT??

i have been told that before. i am prone to brain tumors and am probably going to have to have a second one removed soon. i am only 21 and people have told me that they never would have known. they try to tell me how brave and inspiring i am. i don't exactly know what for, i have not done anything that brave or inspiring.

i dont tell that many people. it is not that i don't want them to know, it is that i don't want to be treated differently, because in all honesty, you do get treated differently. not in a bad way, but i hate that overly sympathetic, annoyingly overcaring way that some people can get. not trying to be ungrateful, but they need to stop. because i am still going to play soccer, and wrestle with my man, who is a gift from god btw :), hang out with my friends and all the other stuff i did before. just like i do when i get over having a cold. just like everyone else. it makes me sad that they think we are sad, small and vulnerable.

who said there was a certain way cancer patients had to act anyways?

there are Olympic gold medalists in wheelchairs. i wonder if people still tell them they don't act like a handicap.

I just laugh and say it's how this one acts.
