Going thru such a prolonged treatment process I have heard a lot of "you're gonna be fine" or "you'll get thru this".
Am I the only one who feels like that's just what you say to someone in that situation? You don't say "things are looking bad for you" or "you might not make it this time". I don't know if I really expect people to say those things exactly, but I get tired of the past couple years hearing people tell me that everything will be fine. Maybe I'm just pessimistic where I should be optimistic, but after a couple years of fighting I lose sight of "the bright side".
Or when people say "it could be worse", no one ever says "it could be better"
My least favorite having Hodgekin's Lymphoma is since I was first diagnosed I was told "this is the most treatable cancer"... That was before I came out of remission twice, but I still hear it from people that are just hearing my story for the first time.
I appreciate when people tell me I have their support, or something similar to that, but they don't honestly know if I'm going to be OK or not. No one knows for sure.
