My name is mike I was diagnous with tounge cancer 5-16-12 , this last year has been just unbeleivible I went from being 216# able to lift weights to 159# . I have lost about 60% of my strenght. I used to live to eat now food is just something that is required to stay alive. I have been in remission for about 3 months and everday is a trial. Recently I had to change jobs cause I could not due my old job but requires me to finish my bsn. This hole process scares the **** out of me. I try to remember I need to be greatfull for everthing I have, but some times I find it hard and almost in tears. My llife has been changed and I don't like it. I wish that my taste buds would come back and that I could get ride of the thrush for more than a week. I know that I am wining but to me it is unloading. I have 21 years in AA and that was an easy recovery compaired to this at times. Thank YOu for listening.
