As many of my friends know i have had cancer and as a result of the ongoing problem i had to travel a great distance to recieve radiation therapy .That was 8 weeks ago and tomorrow i go home . This amount of time has been a shock as originally i was only to be away from home for three weeks at the most . Complications as a result of the way i was treated occourred in the fact that it was a severe trigger for my depression .I saw some great drs and it was decided i be admitted to a special unit for a bit of intense treatement. So thats where i have been and it`s done the trick i have not felt this good in ages and i look to the furture with a lot more hope and clarity than i have in a long time . I only wished that i had encountered a place like this many years ago before so much damage had been done. Now with christmas just around the door i will have a lot of fun and it will be a test of how well i have learn`t valuable living skills to cope with everything . But i`m ready to live life to the fullest and make the most of what i have got because i have realised how quickly life can be taken away without any warning . Take care one and all

Oh Hope its so good to hear from you. I have often wondered how you were doing. Its truly wonderful to hear that you are doing so good and feeling so good too. You have been missed. Has the cancer gone in remission or do the docs think they have it taken care of. I want to say it again, its so good to have you back and feeling good. Take care, its a good day on mylot, there has been a couple of people who haven't been on in awhile that has showed up. Take care.

Hello dear Polly great to see you and just great to be back .Yes the cancer is in remission he told me it will come back but i`m not going to be sitting around worring just when it will surface again .It`s funny that after such an experience i can look at things in a different light and all those little things that i once worried over just seem so in significant to me now there are more important things to focus all my energy into now ,just a shame that it took cancer for me to see clearly .

G`day mac .I only wish i could take things easy then i know things would of probably been ok but it wasn`t long before i was back into the full swing of things and just look at me now back to where i was but thats ok some things have changed ( of course not the things that needed changing ) but i suppose life would be too boring if they did change .Take care my friend will be in touch.

this is a long time ago now and here's hoping that you still have a positive outlook on life and that things are going very well with you hope. Life is too short not to be enjoying ourselves ... no matter what we are doing in it, long as it is legal that is. lol I do not come here anymore but just popped in to see what was happening in the wide world outside of my own little space. Good luck in whatever you do hope and may all the ill health and treatments you have gone through in the past while, disappear forever.

Like 14Missy, I haven't been to your place in awhile, either. It sounds as if you've really been through a lot but have come out of it a better person--which is a positive. I hope that both your Christmas and Easter were great and that you're looking forward to a great spring. Don't be a stranger here. I'm hoping to see some newer posts a.s.a.p.
