Sometimes Inappropriate Humor is Self Care

I used to show up to my radiation treatments wearing a leopard robe and paper crown. It took some time for my (very serious) doctor to understand my humor but towards the end of my treatments, he always had a “butt joke” for me. Since I had rectal cancer at the time, it was quite appropriate. I believe my sense of humor got me through the toughest time of my life.

Be well,
