I have a headache. I have had it for 6 weeks. Yesterday I had a blood test and tomorrow I'm having a brain scan. The doctor said he didn't expect any problems to show up on these tests but he is just being thorough and ruling things out.
A while ago my counsellor asked me if didn't find it strange that in all the time since I was diagnosed with cancer my mum or sisters had never given me a hug or sat and cried with me. It does not seem strange in terms of my family as we are not like that. Though, I can sort-of see it is strange based on the impression I get of what families are like from what I have seen on television.
But there was no use saying it to me. Surely she needs to say it to them. But, of course, she's treating me not them so she can't.
Today I would like a hug.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
