Do you feel like people are tired of hearing you talk about cancer? I really want to talk about my cancer. I want to talk about what I went through to every one I meet. But, I have learned that others don't want to hear it. I sometimes try to jokingly add it to a conversation, but it never goes over very well. I often get those weird looks and awkward silences when I say something about having cancer. I feel like people want me to move on. It's over with, Amanda, move on. Does anyone else feel like that? I am so excited to talk about it here with others like me. It was hard. It was scary. I am still in pain from my hysterectomy. I don't have my muscles back yet. I can barely go up the stairs. I am going through surgical menopause before I am supposed to. I can't have kids. I am now always irritated. Sigh! That feels so good to unload. And, I bet you get me. You know what I am talking about. You have gone through it, too. Or, you are going through it. Do you feel like you can't just talk about it with everyone? Or are you telling every stranger "Hey! I had/have ovarian cancer" and then they give you this Wow!-that's-too-much-information-that-I-can't-handle look. Is it just me or do you get that look, too? Being able to talk about what I went through, out loud, is my way of saying it and then letting it go. I am trying to find people who get me, who know what I am talking about and who understand it all.
