Cancer and the Rose Coloured Glasses

BlogHer Original Post

If you have a chronic illness or disease, you've no doubt made a list of reasons why you hate "it". But how many people are brave enough to put that list out there for the world to see?

How many people don the rose coloured glasses in public because that's what the world wants and expects? The ugly alternative makes us uncomfortable. Please don't show your anger or your fear. Please just keep your chin up, stay positive, it will be ok! Minerva says no thank you to the rose coloured glasses and she does it beautifully.

I can face my enemy full on, in bright light, knowing exactly what it is I am facing...rather than being befuddled by rose coloured glasses....

Minerva is indeed A Woman of Many Parts.
