The last thing I'd want to be labelled is "brave"
"I think you're really brave"
It'd freak me out eugh. non?
Braveness is not fighting to stay alive. That's just WHAT YOU DO.
they told me how nice I smely
unless you're ten or under when it means you'll get a lolly pop.
I'd say you'd be unfortunate
you'd be a coward?
You "lose your battle against..." whatever it is. How is lazing around in bed and withering away akin to fighting?!
lynphoma i hated being called brave i just wanted everything and everyone to be normal around me.
sorry i cant spell my own illness
there was literally nothing anyone could do that would piss me off more. Not even insults and abuse about it. I can't really explain why but it's the most patronising, condescending and humiliating thing imaginable.
I'll save the personal confessional crap next time.
But yeah I'd hate this, considering that if I was dying I'd probably be shitting myself.
"He'll get through it - he's a fighter." No one ever says "Oh fuck, he's totes going to die, isn't he. Come on, we both know it - he's a right pussy. He couldn't hold off a moth, never mind cancer." I hope people say that about me. At least then I can die in the knowledge that people really knew me.
And that's why I'll be going out kicking, screaming and crying. People will NEVER forget that.
and you would be my gill
