I SO get where you are coming from... I've had so much "good" advice from oncologists to naturalpaths that it makes me feel like just strangling them some days.

I'm a cancer survivor. You guys and gals know. I've said it many times before. I've spent 3 years essentially living in a tiny hospital ward.
Any conversations I have with others eventually start to go that way, however much I want to steer away from it. The prying and disassembling of others always comes down to me admitting "Eh yeah I did the whole cancer thing."
It's a big part of who I am, I'm sorry. It just is. I still suffer from health issues and emotional issues as a result. I'm depressed. I'm not empowered, or strong, or happy to be here.
I'm not a miracle. I feel like an abomination if anything. Good job, doctors! You've created a walking, talking train wreck!
So all you bewitching salesgoblins out there--
Have a little respect, or at least a little tact, if you've already forced this information out of me with your psycho head games.
Just let it be at that.
I don't want your supplements.
I don't want your super foods.
I don't want your websites.
I don't want your blogs.
I don't want your detox kits.
I don't want your meditations or yoga mats.
I don't want your candles, crystals, or prayers.
I don't want your new age shimmy shammies, dilly dallies, or dickery docks!
I don't want your hydrocolonic nozzle either.
I don't want to be your testament, I don't want to be your poster boy.
I just want someone to understand what I have gone through, talk to me eye to eye, and maybe a hug. Empathize.
I am not a rube for your dumb little snake oil stand. If you want my wallet that badly, at least have the decency to feel about in my pants pockets a bit!
Shame on you!
