Popping on to say hello.

Hello to everyone who is on from my time period especially those still fighting.  I used to pop on more but a lot of times people pulling up the old posts would send me into a depression.  Even now I just saw one and all of those names just make me so sad.  I miss some of the old friends dearly.  Even with their struggles, the late night sessions really helped keep me going.  What are you doing this weekend Fridays, pictures from vacations.  It really did help when you were trapped in bed miserable, having a panic attack or just wondering how this could possibly be your life.   It's been a hard 5 years with many painful post cancer issues that are permanent but as long as I'm cancer free, I'm moving forward.  Knock on wood that it continues.  Love to all, Helen

    Hugs mate

    So good to see you and hope you are still hanging tough. They always say that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. You and I know what a load of c*** that is  but we do survive. In exactly one month I will be out to 20 years. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones ,Love Ron.

    Love Seeing You Pop In

    I am going to just chill out this weekend.  Starting an exercise program next week that is pretty structured, so being lazy for a few days ;)  Meeting a friend, who had moved out of town, for dinner since back in town for the holidays.  We have shared a similar time-line in all of this and went through it together in many respects.

    Nice to hear from you Helen,

    Nice to hear from you Helen, it is hard to "hear" the names and thoughts of those who shared their lives here, and now are silent, it makes it even more meaningful to have the survivors stop by............................Dave

    Nice to see some old friends

    I too haven't been on much.  For me, it's been 10 years and 5 surgeries and there's just not much to say anymore.  I'm still here and trying to have a normal life in between recurrences.  It's good to see Helen, Ron, Sue, Annabelle, taansfli, and some of the other long time posters.  Have a wonderful 2018 everyone!  Cheers, Traci

    Its always wonderful to see you, Traci

    I hope you never see another recurrance, but I hope we still see you here. 

    Here's to 10 + 10 + 10 + more years.

    Hey Helen, it is wonderful to see you whenever you decided to pop on by.

    I loved Pepe's weekend threads. Someone should start something non-cancer, for a lift.

    ALOHA

    Hauoli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year).  I too have taken a LONG break from the board.  I see all new faces so I just had to respond on this thread with all the old timers.  I’ve been NED since my original surgery (stage 3A) and the dreaded chemo regime. I consider myself very lucky to have only feet neuropathy as proof of my cancer.  To all the newbies, I just want to say: stay strong and never lose hope.  There is a light at the end of the journey.  Life is beautiful and worth every bit of the humbug you’re going through right now and pretty soon you’ll look back and count yourself as a SURVIVOR.  To all you oldies, glad to see you again.
