Cancer

If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

Daniel I am glad you left that company - there are many unethical people out there.

One more to go; I am as red as the firetruck Laura and her family painted this spring. Dreadfully sore and the doctor said my fatigue will continue for another two weeks. Oh great! just in time for the autumn rains! This week is absolutely beautiful with my garden all burgundy, yellow, and orange, Cary will finish up the preparation for winter's freeze, so I am content. I had my first surgery April 15 and last radiation Oct. 22. I guess that six months is long enough for me to be on vacation.
Isn't it fun to share Daniel's China adventure through his blog! It is a wonder that he has the energy to keep us posted.
Cheers to you all; happy thoughts!

Daniel, thank you so much for the pep talk. I am really dreading today and tomorrow ... and then radiation will be done. It really does hurt, a lot. Thankful for each new sunrise.

I understand what you are saying Daniel.  Also, of course you don't do things that are wrong or unethical.  That is not you!

Josn, just be strong a little longer. You are so near the final stages of this journey. Its uncomfortable and psinful but you will get through this. Then, gradually, feel better, and there will be the spring flowers to look forward to.

Daniel, Your new words and vocabulary are pretty much decipherable. I understand because I tried to use Laura's Notebook and did terribly.

Living with cancer does kind of change thinking. It focuses one toward what matters. Right now, getting to the truth of GMO is high on my list. I guess it is time for me to give up my old sob-stories of abuse and discrimination, and focus on what we allow into our bodies.
I am reading a book that Chris recommended, "The Moral Brain". That book helps one to focus.
I'm also reading, "Moral Evolution". Here is an idea:
Moral Evolution
http://www.hermes-press.com/moral_evolution.htm

Religious tyrants essentially destroy the USA educational system, which results in retrograde humans who cannot read, understand, think for themselves, or even survive. These debased persons allow themselves to be brainwashed into a murderous ideology that leads them to volunteer as cannon fodder for insane wars: a demonic plot to seize other nations’ oil and resources, reconfigure the Middle-East, and murder USA military personnel who appear to them as "surplus population”.

Cynical? Yes! But perhaps we need to look at what is true and what is phony.

Mindy there is a lot of bad behavior out there. Not just chemical companies. Also universities and in medical practice. I finally learned, for the most part, people are people. I dont do anything against my own principles but mostly live and work quietly, try to be a positive example, do the best I can, but dont be #1.

Now, living with cancer, And i know I cant start over again, So I dont make waves. But still will not do something I think is wrong or unethical.

Daniel, they scorned you for being TOO ETHICAL?!!!  WOW!!!  What scary, horrible people!  I wonder if any of them went to church on Sunday, and thought they were pleasing "god."
