She has my attitude! Desserts and liquor. Although, eventually, you get a stomach ache, so I am sure there will be real food.
I can identify with not telling people, I kept my multiple myeloma diagnosis to myself for quite a bit while I processed it.
But I was never self-sacrificing like the character of "Cathy" played by Laura Linney. She took care of everyone else and now she is putting herself first. I was always more balanced (selfish?) than that, lol.
But I love the "I want it and I am not putting it off" mindset.
And you don't need to have cancer to have that attitude. Almost everyone I know should have a little more of that attitude.
