"Sex and the City"

This all makes me think back to the “Sex and the City” episode where Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda go with Samantha to chemo. It’s a hot summer day and they are all sitting there eating Popsicles, keeping Samantha company, and making the best out of an otherwise crappy situation.

I think it has to be just about one of my favorite episodes of the entire series.

However, it also profoundly saddens me.


Well, last week, when I had to go for my infusions, other than my immediate family members, no one was banging down my door, telling me that they were coming with me, no matter what I said to dissuade them.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m truly grateful to the people that were there for me. And I know that there were people who weren’t there, who were supporting me in other ways…

But what about all of the people that weren’t?

Do I not have good friends?

Am I a bad person?

Am I expecting too much from people?

And why does a show about sex and shopping have some many life lessons to teach us?
