Hi Everyone,

Please know I am always around.

I have chosen to just lurk on this site the last year.. I am sorry.

I have been having a hard time trying to separate myself from dwelling on cancer.. I have it I know that . I will have it forever most likely - but you never know.

I am trying to live a life of happiness and peace..  and get on with living..

I have lost 2 people who were very motivating to me when I was first diagnosed just in the last month - who I will miss very much..

And Ladies I will tell you it is possible to get a date and develop realstionships with Cancer.. there are men out there who really have a heart and understand you are human and still here. They aren't easy to find.. but I will let you know I have found at least 3 in the last 3 years and I am just amazed and thankful everyday.. 

Lately I have learned that even those we are closest to don't relly understand our journey.. I was shocked at the little they actually understood.. I am thinking they are only hearing what they want to hear.. and that was a little discerning..

However, I just wanted you all to know I am still here.. I will try to check in more often...

Love you all,

    Check in just don't check out

    You check in when your heart tells you to.  You have to do what is good for your spirit.

    I am glad you checked in. I

    I am glad you checked in. I have been trying to seperate myself from cancer as you have for years but it is seeminly impossible to me especially when I am in treatment. When I was NED it was a little easier. As you mentioned I have also found that nobody really understands fully even the people closest to us.
