I see that we have three differenct Cynthia's posting regularly on the message board. 

Just thought that was very interesting, and maybe I should change my name.

I know people are reluctant (including me) to post their real names, but with some posters here, I'm not sure if they are male or female, so a name would be helpful.

So, my name is Sue and I have colorectal cancer stage 3A.  

Anyone else want to share their real name, feel free.

Hi Sue,

As one of the three Cynthia's, it's very nice to finally "meet" you!    :)

Hi Cynthia. Is that a real cat? If so, is it your cat? I really love cats. I have a fifteen year old orange tabby. Not cute at all and on his last legs. But, he's my baby.

really am Ann Alexandria!  It was painful being named Ann (at its height of popularity in 1941...I was born in the 60s), when everyone else was called Kerry and Stacy.  But I've learned to live with it.  If I was going to make up a new name for myself, I would pick something more interesting!  Ann Alexandria aka..Ann Alexandria.  Boring!

I'm surprised! I thought for sure you were using a fake name. The way it flows together, sort of like one name. Don't get me wrong though, it's a very nice name. Could have sworn it was fake!

it's authentic!  My mom was old when I was born (40) sho she gave me an old fashioned first name, and then the name of a city for my middle name because they went well together.   Never mind the actual name is "Alexandra".  Little details like that never stopped my mom.  I have siblings with middle names like Lance and Bliss, so I guess I got off easy being named after an Egyptian city.

grew up in the south in the 50's as a Cynthi Lou, went through a period of what I thought was great creativity fueled by some recreational drug use in the sixties telling people to call me Thia, and my husband of thirty-five years has always called me Cyn ... nice to meet you Sue.

I am Karen Marie. Karen, because my mother thought it was unusual(found out later there were 7 Karens on our block,LOL) and Marie as it was her middle name also.

Luv,

Wolfen

Marsha...Marsha....Marsha.  I thought you were getting your Bradys mixed up Sue!

I really am Jen and we joke with the chemo nurses that I need to get a job there because there are SO many Jens that work there, that it must be a prerequisite to employment.  You can turn any corner, call for Jen and will have someone answer!

Vita has been my nickname for 30+ years.  Vita means life in many languages.  I chose it as I was starting a new life following a divorce.    It stuck!  Other than my professional life, I'm known as Vita.  The Yo was just for fun.

I'm glad you didn't pick Rye for the fun part of your name. 

Rye-Vita. A nice healthy crisp bread in England.

I think Vita/life is a WONDEFUL nickname.

to bow out on, my name is Tony as some of you know, BUT what none of you know is that on my 21st birthday I changed my name by deed poll, (in the UK you are allowed) to Bugs Bunny,

but the funniest thing (to me) is ....I never changed it back, I still have a driving licence (somewhere) with the name Bugs Bunny on it.

My mother refused to call me 'Bugs' my nephews and uncle loved it.

Bow out, that is. 

So some of us don't get along, thats life. My suggestions (and I'm always right Wink ) is if you see a post by someone who you know you have an issue with, IGNORE it. Move along, read the next post.

We need each other.  You need us, I know you do.  I can't even imagine no wiat, I can imagine, just a tiny bit, how hard, how devestating it is to watch your child suffer. You need us, and we need you. Stay around my friend and things will settle down. 

As for Bugs Bunny, that is just too funny, and indicative of how mad one can be when young.

I am also from England, thuogh now living in the Nevada desert. 3 1/2 hours to my chemo every other week. Love these small mining towns (maybe NOT!). 

So Bugs! From one English person to another, stick around.

First, as most of you know my name is Kris (Clarissa Renee, but everyone calls me Kris, don't know why though lol). I've had a couple of people ask me what the "gizzy" in gizzyluv is all about....gizzy is for my 15 yr. old Pekingese "Gizmo"...."Gizmo Little Buddy" is his official name. Just thought I'd add that for anyone who was wondering....I would love to hear about everyone's "furbabies"!.....also, how can we put pictures on here? or are we allowed to?....

How is Jason doing?  And yes, you can add pictures...if you look at the thread "Show Ourselves", there is both a video tutorial that Phil put up, and written instructions by me, your friendly neighborhood librarian.

Jason is doing just wonderfully.....so much better than I could have imagined. (thank god!) The only side effects he's had so far is the mouth sores, which he is using the "magic mouthwash" for, so they are better than when they started, & fatigue....he is SO tired. He was very, very tired the first few days after the first treatment, which was last Wednesday (the 5-FU ended Friday evening). Yesterday is the first day he actually felt like getting out doing stuff. Bless his heart, he left a little while ago going over to a friends house & he said...."man, I dread Wednesday!" (his 2nd treatment....) & just went on out the door. I hope the fatigue gets lighter as it goes along, but that's probably just wishful thinking, huh? He has had a real good appetite though, which is great. He has lost roughly 30 lbs. since August....

My husband was dx'd 5/29/12 and had surgery on 6/1, started chemo 6/13.  His exhaustion was unbelievable. We were never able to figure out if it was from recovering from surgery or having such advanced cancer or the chemo but guess is all of them thrown together.  He was able to work couple hours a day and was gettin ready to put in for leave of absence from work starting aug 1 and was trying to finish up the month of July at work and he started feeling better at the end of July and just kept feelin better and better sheheh never did put in for it and has worked full time since.  He gets chemo on Wednesday and unhooked on Friday so he has theweekend to rest and he feels good again on Monday.  Hopefully your husband will be the same way.  Best of luck to you both!!
