"Personally, being a strong woman is like a double-edged sword: it is both a blessing and a "curse." It is much like the saying, "The squeaky wheel gets the oil." Basically, the loudest of people, who appear to be weak, are the ones who get the attention. Recently, this was the topic of discussion at a local cancer support group. What happens when the "go to" person is in need? Personally, that is one of the most frustrating feelings....to need help and nobody is physically around to provide the support."
