Thank you! I'm so sorry to hear your first doctor said something like that. That's horrifying. I have heard a lot of generic things from people, especially the old "you're so strong" "you got this" mantra. I try not to be too annoyed by it because I think people honestly just don't know what to say and they sort of freeze when they hear the word "cancer". I know the few who shared actual advice with me or shared their own personal stories really impacted me the most, so I hope that I can do that for others now.
