I watch some wonderful crap tv. Some reality shows, some drama, some fantasy. I really enjoy a wide range of tv. However, why is cancer so previlent in tv? Why does reality tv use it as a justification for the person receiving attension? Why is cancer used as a major plot point so frequently?
Was it always like this and I have only recently noticed it? Am i more sensative to it now?
I puzzle at why our society is so caught on that term. Honestly I want it to be thought of with less fear. I want it to be seen as “wow that stinks but it will be okay”.
The “ugly C” word is used as fear. I think it is one of the most feared diagnosis. And yes it stinks and yes it is ugly. And yes it deserves the fear level.
But for me personally I wan it to be less then it is. I want it to be something that is passing in the night. Something that isn’t that huge of a deal seems easier to mentally and emotionally manage. I want to stop having the plot point reminders of what I have gone through. I want it to just be a part of my story that is this life, for it has changed me. But I want it to be a minor key.
Maybe if it wasn’t so scary, maybe if it wasn’t such a big deal, my mind could come to peace with it faster. Maybe I could move past it with greater speed. I would love for this to be ancient history in my life’s story.
And only time can do that, but patience isn’t one of my strongest traits. I suppose I will need to do the work. I will need to take the path ahead of me. No skipping to Go and collecting my money.
