confessions of a cancer patient [part 3]

I don't need your gifts or your cards to feel supported. I just need your presence or your words that acknowledge you have not forgotten me.

When I was first diagnosed with cancer I was bombarded with people who rallied around me.  It's been a year and a half, and most of those people are gone. They have forgotten, and it hurts.  

I still need support. That need hasn't even started to dissipate, and I don't think it ever will. But I'm okay with that.

I am able to find good in the midst of bad. I know it's the presence of God in the midst of turmoil.
