The cancer misfits.

Updated: Dec 24, 2019

I mentioned that in my last post.

But I kinda love the sound of it.

Don’t you?

It gives me a sense of belonging.

And after the hell of cancer I felt like I didn’t belong anywhere.

Now that I have wonky tits and weird side effects from the cancer meds I don’t quite fit.

I don’t fit into a pretty package anymore.

That used to bother me.

It used to bother me so much.

But now I realise.

I have all of you.

And you have me.

We have each other.

We are the cancer misfits.

We get it when no one else does.

We get what it’s like to lose all your hair.

We get what it’s like to have those giant chemo needles shoved in your arm.

We get what it’s like to have the poison pumping through every cell of your body.

I know you get it.

And you know I get it.

Because we’re the cancer misfits that came back from war.

Who will always be slightly shell shocked.

But will never be beaten.

We will never be the same again.

So stop trying to fit back into that boring square hole you once lived in.

You’re a beautiful and wonky shape now.

A shape that is imperfect and awesome.

And you don’t have to fit neatly into any hole.

You fit in with me perfectly.

You’re different.


And exactly the same as me.

So stop feeling alone.

And just be a happy misfit.
