Through the years as a cancer survivor, you will find your real friends. Some you will find are TOTALLY CLUELESS. I believe your MIL falls into that last category.
, after dealing with one cancer, all the scary moments and your MIL thinks you are not handing this well. Where has she been?
I had (note past tense) a friend, something of a ding bat. Anyway, day of my surgery she came to visit me in hospital with a box of chocolate. Though I might enjoy them following my surgery
My brother after she left asked me "does she have any idea what type of major surgery you had today. I told him probably not. I was 3 months out from my last chemo and had scans. All was clear, she responded, "so NOW can you put this cancer thing behind you and move on". I looked at her and said "if you look at the stats, my chances of being alive in 5 years are about 30%. Could you dismiss it so easy and move one". She dropped her jaw "how do you sleep at night". I responded "many nights, I do not sleep" Dingbat!
As CRGuy said it best Don't let small minded assholes drag you down to their level. I want to remember that one for future use.
Again, don't let her get to you,
