Its been a very long time since I posted anything on the board. Some of you will
remember me, some won't. But I felt that Today I had to as today is my 2 year anniversary from finishing treatment.
I have visited the board quite often but never posted. I see a lot of the old guard are still here
and I see lots of new poeple. I would like to say to the new ones that this place was a god send
to me while I was going through treatment, the encouragement, support and love helped me
get to where I am today.
I am pretty much back to the way I was before , all the old habits are back....drinking and
partying, cruising and working ( and fishing Skiff ). All be it a new normal, my taste is no where near where it
should be but my saliva is about 90% ( I still have dry mouth at night cause I'm a mouth breather )
In the last two years Iv'e been to 6 funerals of friends who have all passed cause of this horrible
disease, one being my best friend two moths ago ( age 49 ), also my father started chemo 1 month ago
for CLL and my sister is on a 6 month watch and wait for complicated cysts in her breast.
I do read and think about of all of you on here and pray that all your lives will return to normal
as I have been blessed to have a second chance and cherish everyday.
Well it is raining here today ( South Florida ) but I still go to the Tiki bar every Sunday an recharge
the old batteries with a few beers , steel drum music and great friends.
All of you are in my prayers.
God bless you all
