Barbara Ehrenreich- Pathology of Hope

ehrenreichThis is one of my favorite articles of all time. I am sharing it here because I want to make sure I can always find it. Nine years ago I had to deal with breast cancer. I called it breast cancer light. I had what they call Stage Zero DCIS and I had a lumpectomy and radiation. At the same time I had other personal hurdles going on and life was challenging to say the least. I could not have managed it without permission to feel really bad sometimes. Depressed. Angry!
