Hi Melissa - Well I can tell your days haven't been going well, and the so-called "reality" shows aren't providing much of an escape. Yes, cancer is an ugly, horrible, devastating disease and there are many days when dealing with it just sucks. I'm glad you feel comfortable enough with us to tell us exactly what's on your mind and what you're going through. Your 2009 list would be frightening to many people, and yet you've weathered all of that and more. I don't know what to say to you today except that it's important that you get your feelings out - good and bad - and keep in touch. Just like there's little to no reality in "reality" shows, there's little to no reality in the way Hollywood portrays cancer, and only someone like you, Melissa, going through the real deal, can show us what cancer is like - the good, the bad, and the truly ugly. Keep on writing, my friend. Warm regards, Pat
