Sometimes it feels so debilitating thinking about all the pain my mom endured throughout her cancer. It consumes me somedays. I was sharing my feeling with a friend and they commented that maybe her pain was in fact not that bad to her because the body has a mysterious way of protecting itself. I was so angry. They didn't see my mom crying when I would help her into the tub because she had become so skinny it hurt her bones to sit in a bathtub. I know this person had good intentions but sometimes I can't believe the things people say
