    hope this doesn't offend anybody...

    I get so angry when I look at some people
    they think their life is filled with so much evil
    just because they can’t get an outfit they’d like to have
    and they know they have enough clothes to last
    I get mad when people complain about the way their feet hurt
    when all they’ve done is stand for five seconds on the earth
    or they complain about feeling a little sick
    but on the other had they can take tylenol to be unsick
    I can’t stand the complaints about feeling so tired
    it you haven’t done anything? then why the hell are you tired?
    whining and screaming and feeling undesired
    how about we switch places, thats what I desire
    i’d rather worry about clothes, than loosing my hair
    i’d rather have my feet hurt, than have doctors be unfair
    i’d rather be tired from nothing, than from chemotherapy
    i’d rather have a regular life than have people ask me...
    so how does it feel to have cancer in you body?
    I know its concern...but sometimes I’d rather you not bother me...

    I absolutely feel you, LovelyGoldenOne. Many healthy people whine and whine about doing exercise, simply because they're lazy. One woman I train has every reason not to work out - rheumatoid arthritis and a host of other problems. Yes she is always pushing herself. Sometimes I feel like people are so ungrateful for what they have. But I just tune them out and concentrate on being grateful myself.

    My thoughts are with you as you continue go to through treatment. :heart:

    this is true, lovely...........the perspective your bring is real
    people today are so ungrateful and unthankful for the simple
    things in life............too preocupied with frivolous immaterial issues...

    I feel you...
