Is that right? Did you really say that?

    All of them! Also:

    “I thought my life was bad, but look at your situation!”

    ”My prognosis is not as bad as yours.”
    The comments about knowing people who had died were common. The chemo one cropped up a lot. 

    A nurse who on my first day of chemo told me that because I had to reschedule due to cold caps “We are very busy and you are holding us up from getting home.”

    Mostly people mean well. I’ve learned to tune out. These days people don’t even ask how I’m doing. I prefer that.

    Best one I've had so far was the nurse in the holding area before I was wheeled into theatre telling me that one of her colleagues had BC and recently died.

    I should say that every other staff member at the hospital was great and very sensitive.  (I had the same nurse before theatre the second time round and this time she didn't say anything.)  I have to say that my disbelief in what I was hearing distracted me from the panic I was feeling at the time. :D

    A friend of mine has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and one of his colleagues told him he eats like a crab. :(
