I talk about my predicament much more easily. I was afraid it would be difficult to discuss, but – for the most part – people are just as nervous in talking about it as I am. And talking to most about it is encouraging.
Of course, you do run into the boneheads who don’t get it and yammer on about the person they know who was encouraged to have a double mastectomy so that the situation wouldn’t arise again in the remaining breast or how many people they know who have died from breast cancer. Now those are really the comments you want to hear when you’re facing a breast cancer. Real encouraging, don’t ya think.
