Patiently Occupied?

So what is this "Patiently Occupied" blog about, anyway, you ask?

Well, even if you didn't ask, I'll tell you anyway. My main blog has been primarily about topics of interest to someone in my situation, whereas I felt I needed a place to be less objective, a place where I could discuss the feelings surrounding that situation. Not wanting to change the tone of that blog, I decided that I needed a separate place from the "formal" side of things.

If you've seen my profile here, you've undoubtably seen that my "occupation" is listed as "patient." That really has nothing to do with patience, though of course it's a characteristic that is sometimes required.

These days, my primary "job" is to be a colorectal cancer patient, and this is a blog where I can express the emotions that arise from that, and related posts as well of course. It is about the occupation of being a patient, and everything that accompanies it.
