Medical trauma can leave you feeling voiceless.

You didn’t choose the earth-shattering diagnoses – you had a stroke, you have cancer, you need an amputation – you could die. Medical personnel speak in their terminology, and you feel lost.

Idiotic and tactless comments #medical #surgical #BreastCancer #Recovery #cowdens Syndrome #Caregiver #Mastectomy #Laugh

Some ppl feel the need to fill the air with words.
