hi, I don't know how others feel but I'm not sure life is worth the hard work. I'm 58 years old, a cancer survivor so far. My work mates hate me say I'm lazy, I'm 30 to 15 years older than them, my work involves heavy pushing and lots of walking. Since chemo my feet are numb, right arm lymphodema, after mastectomy. Aggressive stage 3 Tumor. I don't understand these unfeeling people, as I have carried many "lazy" work mates through out my career and am proud that I I have looked after those that needed help in being elder than me or not well. I believe in helping others!

    Hello there! You are a cancer survivor and this fact is enough for you to be an inspiring person for all those suffering right now! Please do use your experience to help other people fighting now with this disease. You may be valuable to them! Dont you have a choice to find something different to do instead of such a hard work? There will always be someone insensitive in this world but you know what? Life is a circle! Good times come come bad times come.. Those that dont understand you will one day come in your position. Life is such a lesson.. You are a winner and have survived so much wouldnt it be a pitty to give up now? Keep calm and carry on smile you are not alone!

    Hi Sheridanl

    I cannot believe these horrible people who you work with. Do they know your story? And that you had cancer? If not then you should think about telling them, if they already know than there are no words to describe these selfish uncaring people. I think your remarkable that you are still working after going through all that, and they are not worth you wasting any more of your time worrying about what they think of you. They are not worth it.i truly wish you lots of happiness for your future, just carry on with what you are doing, it sounds to me that your doing great and I think it's marvellous that your still working after going through all that. Your a very brave lady.

    Big hugs snd take care

    Hey there,

    you dont have a problem, they do.

    You're a cancer survivor! You are much stronger than their words.

    They do not understand what you've been through.

    Are you feeling better today?
