The Pink Elephant


Living with a chronic it cancer, leukemia, diabetes, like living with the proverbial "Pink Elephant" in the room. Everyone knows it is there. Everyone sees and feels its oppressive, offensive, and uninvited presence. Yet, no one wants to call it by name. Everyone steps gingerly around its massive bulk. All those in close proximity hold their respective noses when they get too close. When it eventually takes the dreaded, but anticipated, crap on the carpet, the response is to tie a putrid pink little ribbon around it to make everyone aware that it there.
