Yesterday a relative asked me to a coffee morning, I said unfortunately it coincided with my haematology appointment. She asked why I went to haematology. I never mention the "C" word, so I said I had a problem with my blood and bone marrow. She gave the usual remark of "Well you don't look ill". Then her husband butted in with "you should eat a healthier diet that would sort it out for you". So I said well actually it's a cancer called Essential Thrombocythemia and I take chemotherapy for it. They both looked at me and said they'd never heard of it and it obviously wasn't cancer as I looked so well.
No I didn't bang their heads together but I felt like it!
