How not to say the wrong thing...

I usually steer clear of re-posts, but this one is too good to pass up.

I hope that I can remember the "comfort in, dump out" mantra whenever I am in a position to: (a) not be at the center of the attention,  and (b) interact with my many survivor-friends. It is so easy to forget that we are fragile humans, but we are especially fragile when an unexpected illness takes over the world that we know.
