She told Moira: “Why do you have to keep going on about me having my lung drains or starting my chemo again?

“You must know how that makes me feel.

“You seem to think it will help to tell people so they can tell me how sorry they are when they’re watching me dying.”

She added: “It’s alright for you lot, you can make plans about how you’ll cope with me not being around but there’s no point in me doing that, is there?
