Do any of you watch old Fawlty Towers episodes? You know when the wife is on the phone, ignoring customers,drawling, "Oh, I KNOW!"
Lately, I have found myself hearing from family and friends who have received breast cancer diagnoses. Two people in the last two weeks.
I guess I know how it feels. In the case of my sister-in-law, she wants to talk to me about how it feels to get a body part cut off.
Oh, I KNOW!
In the case of my friend, do I understand the fear of the still-unknown-and-soon-to-be-determined prognosis?
However, what do any of us know of other people's pain? How well did I come through breast cancer? Awesome! Unless you want to count the emotional blow-torch that I applied to my life afterward.
Anyone who is familiar with my life is aware that I don't have any wisdom. Or knowledge or answers or solutions.
Oh! I know.
