Life's a bitch, a very bitchy one that grabs you by the balls when you least expected. Yes life is unfair, is so unfair that to a certain extent you just want to scream and just stab yourself, straight to the middle of your heart.
Yet, life is fair when it comes to illness. Regardless of your sex, age, race, status, we can never run away from it. My aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer, 3rd stage. She just finished her chemotherapy sessions and having her first radiotherapy soon. And last week, my best friend's father was diagnosed with lung cancer, 4th stage. 4th stage is a very scary stage for a cancer patient. He will be having his chemo session this coming Tuesday, i think. My friend was devastated, the bad news just crushed her. I thought i know how to comfort her since i shared the same experience of having a family member who is suffering from cancer, but i guess i'm quite clueless in the end.
"Everyone tell me to prepare for the worst." she said.
"Why can't we hope for the best?" i said.
It kills me to see her this depress and sad... Yes if i were to be in her shoe i would be devastated too. I want her dad to be well, and i want her to be well too. What should i do? What should i say?
Everything is so fragile now that i'm afraid the words that are coming out from my mouth would break her to pieces... Dear friend, please stay strong and know that i will always be there for you. Be strong and grabs back the balls of life. Don't let go.
