Jodie hit out at insensitive remarks made to cancer sufferers
“People just don’t get it. Unless you’re in that situation, people just don’t understand.”
On good days when she feels well, Jodie said she goes out and tries to live life to the full – but she says it’s difficult to strike the balance.
“It changes every day, I can wake up and want to run a marathon, but other days I can wake up and think: ‘Am I going to die today?’
“On a three times weekly basis I get these comments and it makes me feel bad.”
She said she no longer spoke to people who had sent her unkind messages.
“I’ve just had to have a no policy now, because I was sat there feeling really guilty and awful about it,” she explained .
“It did really get to me – thinking maybe I should just man up, maybe I am being weak, but then I’m thinking: ‘I’ m sat there on chemo, drugged up, still working ‘. “
