"Please don't joke about cancer."

This is going to be confusing.

I'm reading Jenny Lawson's most recent book, Furiously Happy.
And when I went to post a loving comment on her blog I saw that the comment above mine was, "please don't joke about cancer." and I thought:
Ugh! Please DO joke about cancer!! That's what I've been saying for all these years!!

So I went back to her website today to try to re-comment on the cancer comment BUT what I found instead was awesome. And instead of reading any more words here, you should go read these other words:

These words. Click here and read and it's ok to cry a little.

I know! Wasn't that amazing? I'm ordering two of that drawing as mini-posters, one for me and one for a friend.

I love Furiously Happy and Jenny's description of depression vs. other illnesses. I thought her rant about depression vs. cancer was REALLY well-done and drove the point home. People who were offended by it must have missed the point!
