The "Y Me" Support Group
I have had breast cancer twice, the first time when I was 37, and it was pretty advanced. One of the support groups I was invited to was called Why me?
That just irked me no end. I sent them a note and said, "well, why NOT you?" Nobody replied. Seriously, are we supposed to get points for good behavior that protect us from ever getting sick??The very question implies that the person thinks they are too good to get the disease (and inherently, that the ones who do get the disease are somehow inferior).
