imageChris - 3 months post-treatment  Hi everybody.  Well... I've made it another month, almost.  March 5th I will be celebrating 3 months since finishing chemo and radiation.  Feels so good to have made it through.  We all have our own unique coping mechanisms but, after reading through some of my older posts, I have realized that I must have taken myself "out of body" mentally, in order to manage the whole ordeal.  Right now, it sometimes seems like it happened to someone else and I …More…

So you have a box with 1000 …More…

imageNicole (Lady Of The Larynx) - Respect the HEMP  If there is such a thing as a typical laryngectomee life, I'm still grappling with the concept.  Granted, it's been less than a year since loosing my vocal chords last May, but part of me actually expected some mastery of daily "lary" routine(s) by now.  Naturally, my other half has always maintained that I'll never be ready for prime time again.  Competition for the upper hand is quite lively most days, and the smallest physical setbacks seem the biggest triggers.  My …More…

She said she was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. I'm so sad. She and I are are like 10 1/2 months apart. Every year we're the same age for 2 months. My birthday is February 11, 1957 …More…
