The responses in this thread have touched my heart. In the face of all our uncertainty, fears, burdens (financial and otherwise)there is so much hope here. The holidays are a powerful force. The spirit of compassion, hope and peace are called forth. Thank you for sharing yours with me and I wish peace, courage, strength (or whatever it is you need) and all good things to you and yours.
When you go through the advanced stage of this cancer it is powerful, mean, and evil, and certainly there is no no good cancer to get at all. If you got a low stage of BC I pray that your stage never upgrades. Regards, Joe
Fully agree, Every time i have a down day, I keep trying to remind myself that whatever is happening in the waterworks dept. I still have two legs , two arms ,two eyes, two ears , and that is a hell of a lot more than many others on this earth.If there is one good thing that comes from being diagnosed with bladder cancer, it is that it makes us appreciate how lucky we all are to be able to sit back and realise how precious life is.
Love to all ,
Those of us dealing with Metastatic Bladder Cancer are in the Ring with every prize fighter since 1900! They are on a tag team, and we are just sitting there getting our heads bashed in..I agree that we have to accept our own fate...but we don't have to like it...The holidays just emphasize how much we mean to each other and how short life really is...Auld Lang Syne at the New Year...oh man is it tough! If you are dealing with a Bladder Cancer that is curable...God Bless you this Season...If you are dealing with a Terminal Cancer, God Bless you and everyone you know...I will be offering up prayers for all of us to put our lives in perspective, and be Thankful for what we do have, or don't have as the case may be....
Better to be Alive than Dead.
Better to be Surviving than Dying.
Better to be Alone than with someone who doesn't deserve us.
Better to be Healthy than Sick.
Better to be fighting, than giving up too soon.
Better to be at Peace with your Life, than constantly fighting with it...It is going to happen anyway, might as well roll with the punches.
God Grant us All Peace, with whatever our individual lives hold...
Caregiver for my Wonderful Husband Angelo, who has Metastatic Bladder Cancer.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
