Honest question: what does that question mean, exactly? Could you elaborate? Not sure if I'm reading it wrong or what.

Hey there.

I'm so happy that you are moving forward. You are going through more than what most people in their 20's ever have to deal with, and that's more than admirable.

I don't want this question to come off to you as non-sensible, because I'm aware that it could. I'm curious about that one month period of time where you 'blacked out'. Typically, when someone sleeps for a long time, we sort of feel that it was long. 6 hours compared to 10 hours of sleep just feels different, even if that difference is subtle. But you didn't exactly "sleep" - so when you awoke for the first time, did it feel like a long time since you had been awake last? Or was it a different feeling?

Sort of a strange question, but just genuinely curious. Thank you for doing this AMA.

Two questions, really, if you don't mind :)

  1. Has the prominence of cancer really increased as society has become more 'modernized' and industrious?

  2. I am 22 years old now. I've known about cancer since a boy and my conception of it has always been "Well, that person's definitely going to die now that they have cancer." Do you have any information from your research which would change my awry conception of cancer?
