You have colon cancer.....stop.....breath.....colon cancer. I was 43 years old, had just started to go through empty nest syndrome as the chicks had just left the nest and BOOM! It dropped like bomb from the sky!I soon realized just how important my writing truly is. Since being drafted into the war on cancer, writing has been my weapon of choice. I could not carry this albatross without first ranting and raving and crying over my mortality in the form of words. I am allowed to behave like a total mess for the sake of a poem or story. This enables me to paint on the Cover-Girl smile and behave rather socially acceptable while in public.I realized I am writing what every cancer victim feels but we are much too polite to say. We do not discuss the things that will make our loved ones uncomfortable. The loved one begins to feel you (the cancer bearer) has given up because you feel a need to rant, rave, to be damned angry!! AND in need of someone to stand there and listen.....listen.....listen.....
