I wouldn’t say I agreed with everything journalist Joanna Moorhead says here but a lot of it hits the mark:
Re point No 3, about friends’ tales of good fortune… I’m more than happy to hear about all the good things going in in everyone else’s lives. Despite the obvious, there are actually lots of good things going on in mine too!
Re point No 8, asking how I feel… physically I’m feeling great. In fact I’m fitter than I’ve been in years. But I’ve got breast cancer, so emotionally I’m feeling pretty fragile.
Re point No 9, about post-surgery hospital visits… I’ll let you know nearer the time. The op isn’t likely to happen until December or January. We’re starting with chemo first, and the first session is likely to be early next week.
