Blogging Is NOT About Pity

Sometimes I worry that blogging about the cancer could be interpreted that I am seeking pity.  

That is certainly not the case.

What is "pity"?  
  •  A feeling of sorrow and/or compassion caused by the misfortunes/suffering of others.
Well...I might cause pity or it my be a result of a post or update on our life, but in no way do I expect people to act on those feelings.  Telling someone in crisis you feel sorry for them does nothing but make them realize just how bad things actually look, from the outside looking in.  Sure, at times we have needed and received help...we all have, for that matter...and I am thankful each time...but I will have to pass on the pity party.
