Just ordered a new license personal plate today with the American Flag flying over MI and personalized letters of LVNLIFE either meaning Loving Life and/or Living Life and both which I'm doing since being diagnosed. Just because I'm NED doesn't mean I've not got my problems because the radiation and chemo have done a toll on me everyday and I'm living with it. But I'm feeling that this new personalized plate will keep reminding others that you need to live/love life while it is here. While I'm fortunate to give all my glory to God and give Praise to Him for my success in this disease, I've always been reminded that a song brings me comfort from Laura Story "Blessings" that even though I'm suffering He might just have something more in mind for me - what I don't know.
'Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
Whatever makes you feel that gives you strength you all need to pull towards it. This board has always pulled towards me, no matter if I was down, or up. I've always been drawn to this board for comfort, support, advice, help, reassurance, ranting, suffering, being misunderstood by family or friends, etc. and most of all love and compasion.
I'm dealing now with such sever hip pain that renders me unable to walk at times and I'm thinking it has to do with the radiation to my hips because of rectal cancer. I'm going to my primary doctor in August for a physical and going to ask what he thinks I should do. It's become so painful that I'm almost not able to make love anymore and I'm wanting some help. I know that no topic is off this forum because of what we have had to deal with so I'm sorry for the new people if I've stepped on other's toes by being so forward.
This new license plate makes me think that I can live/love life again after cancer and I'm going to do my best to make that happen.
Please keep me in your prayers, vibes, good wishes and just your thoughts that I'm able to walk without pain again very soon. I'm used to walking 5-7 miles a day and I'm barely able to walk about 2. My nights are long sleepless nights unless I take some Flexirol and pain pills so I'm wanting some relief.
Thank you, my friends, for being here for me. You are always in my prayers.
