Holds breath and types….. so, I've got cancer…
I’ve been learning a lot about honesty and showing one’s vulnerability. Hat’s off to you MM for writing that. And I’ll keep tipping my hat to you all the way – I have no doubt it will be hard, but it’s a fight worth having.
While not the same type/location, here’s a link to a blog by a similarly aged guy in my cycling club. I don’t know him, but I found reading his blog amazingly touching and uplifting. And he’s back on the bike….
Best wishes.Posted 4 years agopeterfileMember
Awful news for you and your family, but glad you’re in fighting shape and up for kicking this in the arse.
I’ve had my mum and best mate go through the same process, the only advice I could offer you is to lean on those around you as much as possible, it will make things easier for you and, strange as it sounds, it will make this easier on them too. One of the hardest things I found was not being able to help, just having to stand and watch them go through it, so the more I was able to do (even just trivial things), the more positive I felt since I was at least doing something.
You’re in good hands now. I hope everything goes well, I really do.Posted 4 years agojivehoneyjiveMember
All the best buddy… stay positive and focused and no doubt you’ll be back on top in no time; there is a lot of evidence to show the healing power of the mind, so hang in there with mind over matter and you’ll kick it’s butt good n proper.
Also, if you do decide to begin a Crystal Meth Empire due to your natural levels of genius, try to avoid becoming overly greedy.Posted 4 years agoslackaliceMember
I admire your courage in so many ways. Believe and keep going and believe some more and thank you for sharing. There are some wise and humbling words in the posts above, Im sure you’ll take much strength from them.
And thank you also for giving me a renewed perspective on my life.Posted 4 years ago66degMember
I’d like to wish you all the best for what ever you may have to face in the future . Whilst i am not suffering from cancer the last couple of years have been difficult in our family, my father in law has had his bladder and all plumbing removed but now has lung cancer whilst my mother has had two different types of cancer in either breast . My uncle has been fighting cancer for the last decade and has just passed his 120th chemo treatment.
The thing that has surprised me over the last few years is how resilient people can be and accepting of the changes to life that occur after diagnosis.
I can recommend a book that may help with some of the questions you may have it is titled Cancer is a word,not a sentence by Dr Robert Buckman.
Good luck.Posted 4 years agojonny rocky mountainSubscriber
