During chemo youre more tired than youve

During chemo, you’re more tired than you’ve ever been.  It’s like a cloud passing over the sun, and suddenly you’re out.  You don’t know how you’ll answer the door when your groceries are delivered.  But you also find that you’re stronger than you’ve ever been.  You’re clear.  Your mortality is at optimal distance, not up so close that it obscures everything else, but close enough to give you depth perception.  Previously, it has taken you weeks, months, or years to discover the meaning of an experience.  Now it’s instantaneous.  ~Melissa Bank

Bill Hemmer:  "You said cancer changes your life, and oftentimes for the better."
Joel Siegel:  "Yes…. Gilda Radner… said this in her book.  What cancer does is, it forces you to focus, to prioritize, and you learn what’s important.  I mean, I don’t sweat the small stuff.  I used to get angry at cab drivers.  It’s not worth it…. And when somebody says you have cancer, you realize it’s all small stuff.  And what Gilda said is, if it weren’t for the downside, everyone would want to have it.  But there is a downside."
