Today I Turned 56

Options
Yep, it's my birthday. I wondered last year this time if I would see another year. I've been a lurker but not much of a poster since I joined the forum, as I'm a pretty quiet guy. No one ever seemed to have much to say to me and I just realized today that I never filled out the information about myself and my plight, so maybe everyone thought I was anti-social or hiding something. Anyway, my story is no secret and I'm glad to share anything about me and my experiences with anyone. So, please feel free to read my bio or whatever it's called and hopefully we'll all be around a long time to help each other out. Thanks.

    Today
    I had my first chemo and radiation. My greatest desire is to live to be 83 because getting old no longer scares me. It's the NOT getting old that isn't do fantastic. Happy Birthday To You My Friend!!!

    Dude
    are you really a sooner? Because then we cant be friends:). Thanks for filling out your bio. I wish everybody would, as it facilitates discussion quite a bit. PS. The fear does lessen.

    Well....Happy Birthday to you, Sooner!!
    and welcome from out of lurking.

    Yes, it is true....you have to talk about yourself so we can talk back to ya LOL. If you've been lurking, you must see that no subject is off limits...We all get quite close after hanging here for a while, as you must see...

    LOTS of caring and support here...so come back and talk to us!! :)

    Sounds good
    to me. I think I'll stick with 55 for the same reason - 2011 was definitely a year I'd like to forget! Happy belated birthday, Tom. May we both enjoy many more!

    Happy B-day Sooner and Tom!!!!
    Hope you both had great B-days...sorry so late in wishing you that....been crazy busy at work getting ready for July / August (summer months here in resort town USA)...

    Missed reading all of the posts and trying to get caught up! :)

    I do wish this forum was a bit faster and user friendly in going to the next discussion..unless I have not figured out out yet..I always have to hit the back button to go to another discussion???

    Best,

    Tim

    Birthdays
    Last year I was wondering if I would make it to my 50th birthday, but I did & what a great birthday that was. I hope your birthday was just as good!
