Hi all, I was reading the posts about hair coloring. my take on the whole thing is do what you want. I have been semi conscious about what I have been doing for the past 18 months, but I still go shopping while on chemo, sit in the sun for more than five minutes, blah blah blah. I do not smoke, never have, never did drugs or drank in excess, and yet I still got cancer. So I figure I am going to continue to live my life as I see fit and pooey on what I am told. I have never been one to do as I was told anyway!! Hell, my first onco told me I only had one to two years, but I am proving him wrong!! I dont drink while on chemo, but on my week off, a nice cold beer goes down nice. I swam in the lake today and then laid out my blanket and sunned for about a half hour. Bad girl, we are not supposed to be in the sun while on chemo, poop on that.
I guess what I am saying is that if it feels right and makes you happy, then do it. We only live once in this body, so enjoy it to the fullest. I am not staying in the house and stagnating, I am going to have fun with my friends and when I do go, then I will go with a content, happy smile on my face.
We are all going to beat this together, stay strong of mind and body, and giggle your days away!!!
hugs to you all, Tiger

Tiger - I agree with you 100% and that is how I intend on living my life also. As long as I walk and talk with the Good Lord up above, I feel he will watch over me. I had been doubtful about being in the sun also, but have a trip planned to the beach at the end of July and plan on enjoying it.
Enjoy life and we all look up to you because you are such a fighter. Keep on fighting!
God Bless You - Lucy

Hi Tiger, you know most doctors are just men, and most men are often wrong ... -) -) So live it up, you're perfectly right !

I liked Brenda's post on how statistics can lie. And I have yet to meet a single AVERAGE woman on this board. I think you ladies are all exceptional ! And having your attitude is part of it.

Take care,
Cathy

hey tiger,

you are so inspiring! i finished treatment in may and to celebrate treated myself to a week in HAWAII. I learned how to snorkel and SURF. I never felt more alive that day. Visiting Pearl Harbor was sobering but I still appreciate every day on this earth. PLEASE keep up your strong spirit. I am praying for you.

Love,

CK
