You Cannot Pour From An Empty Cup But

Sometimes the people who are charged with caring for us do the most damage. Sometimes it is doctors, friends, family but as cancer patients we need to take care of ourselves and focus on our fight.

I didn’t write a “real” post about this but, I might soon and probably should. Until then, I lift my teacup to all those out there fighting cancer and dealing with the those who knock over your teacup, sip theirs and then act like you’re the crazy one! 🙂


Also, I created another meme along the same lines. Many cancer patients are strong and this leads some to think we are always strong, never down or depressed. Sadly, it’s because of this strength that some feel that they can say or do anything. What they forget is that a large part of our daily battle is invisible to them. They are not physically there when we cannot function, are in pain or simply need a comforting touch or word. So our suffering is often beyond their comprehension or dismissed…and sadly is sometimes used as an excuse by others to behave poorly to you.  Well, you are not alone. We stand together, we fight together and we hope together.


To my fellow tea drinkers….you are not alone,

  1. So well said and so so valid! Often their actions are unintentional, but their thoughtless behavior does harm nevertheless. I would love to read a blog about this from you.

    • Thank you so much. It’s really true and sometimes not so unintentional but we have to try to gather our strength and move on. I have been flirting with writing a blog with this theme. 🙂

  2. Ed, check out cannabis oil. I am posting a message from someone who cured themselves of stage 4 breast cancer and MS using it. There is a doctor who provides it in the US. 90 days of 1 gram a day and many, perhaps most go into remission. Watch Rick Simpson’s – Run from the Cure for more info. This was posted to my public service web site – by someone who experienced a “miracle”: with his wife (but it wasn’t really a miracle, it’s (cannabis oil) just been forbidden by the powers that be).

    “This is a great miracle that has just happened in my family and i can’t keep this testimony to myself, my name is Alan Davidson, my wife’s stage IV breast cancer and MS has just been cured with the cannabis oil gotten from DR. Henry Zimmerman , cannabis oil is great medication. To hell with the government and their insane policy, we have a medication that is hundred percent assured to cure cancer and you don’t need to spend so much money on anymore on chemo, radiation or surgeries that wouldn’t work. Where to purchase, contact via: ( My family is now a brand new one, so stop your worries and go get your medication and set the family free of the deadly disease that hold no respect to family harmony. Make your health a better one by using cannabis oil in your everyday life. contact Dr. Zimmerman on: ( for all type of cancer cure.”
