The Perks of Being a Cancer Patient

Cancer? I hardly even know her.

And that is because I am in complete remission! You know what’s awesome? Getting a PET scan that tells you that you definitely do not have cancer! I bet you can’t say that you definitely don’t have cancer since nobody’s taken a picture of your insides lately. But I cannnnnnn!

I still need to get three more poison chemotherapy treatments, but at least I’m going through them cancer-free. Honestly, my disposition has totally changed. My cancer-related anxiety has melted away and now I’m just left with the normal anxiety that plagues my life.

Weather? I hardly even know her. (I came up with that one on my own)

I rarely go outside. By the time I’m done with the treatment, we’ll be moving right into spring. Every now and then someone will text me saying it’s super cold or snowing and I’m just sitting here enjoying the balmy climate of my apartment.

2018 will go down in history as the year I skipped winter.

Fashion? I hardly even know her. (Oh my god, titles are so easy.)

I have mocked people who wear leggings as pants mercilessly for years. I just think it looks so stupid. Leggings as pants makes you look like you walked out of the house before you finished getting dressed. The only reason I even owned leggings was to wear them under my pants when it was super cold or as an alternative to tights when I wear a dress.

Now, I take it all back. Now, I have leggings in all sorts of colors. In with the leggings and fluffy socks and out with the bras and anything that is not 100% comfortable. If I have to change out of it to go to bed, it is not for me! Fashion is a burden that I do not have to bear anymore.

  1. Dear Molly,
    You guys are so funny. You all “get” each other. I am impressed, and more than impressed, so happy for you. The light at the end of the tunnel is brighter. It has been a pleasure to have been allowed to share so much.
