I hope that having cancer hasn't turned me into a spoiled brat.
When people hear that I have cancer, they offer support and encouragement. [Side note: I think I am probably cancer-free at this point, but as I'm still going through treatment, I'm not going to split too many hairs. Anyway.] And they buy me things. And they listen. My God, do they listen.
And it's soooo easy to get - well - taken in. It's like I have this free pass that says, "I Have Cancer: Give Me What I Want!"
