All ideas and info. provided here are to be discussed with your medical professionals. I am NOT Medically trained. I have merely had this vile disease since 1998 - always use your Common Sense and seek expert medical advice.
YOU MAY FIND THE LINKS in text and in the Right Sidebar of Help.
I can NOT vouch for any external site that I may direct readers to & therefore can NOT accept any legal responsibility - this is a personal blog of that which I believe only.
I do NOT believe there are magical cures hidden from us by our medical professionals though there are without doubt cases that seem cured as if by magic. Medical knowledge of this disease is very rudimentary and research frequently profligate but pointless!
However - sticking goji berries in your ear on a moonless night or similar WILL NOT HELP - Nor will the price paid for quackery be it here OR Mexico, Brazil or China!
There are many health care professionals trying their very best with great care and compassion but perfection is a little way off!
Be Minded:
I have cancer - cancer does not have me!

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come". - (Julius Caesar - Act II, Scene II).

I appreciate that chemo has strange effects on people but all it seems to have done so far is break my circadian clock and given me horrid mouth ulcers!

Sorry I memtion the mouth ulcers all the time as it is hard to acoid their omni presence and I'm very conscious of how hard Lee tries to produce palatable food - it must be so demoralising for her to go to all the trouble and then watch me with tears rolling down my face with the discomfort as I struggle to eat the food taking well over an hour for the simplest of food.

I am however determined to eat every last morsel put in front of me both out of respect for her efforts and also as I am aware there may come a time when I am too ill to eat and I will need the help of food eaten now to get through that battle and recover the other side.

After chemo yesterday I was feeling bushed but needed to catch up on my 'e'Mails and a few phone calls and also read up the papers on the computer so I did that whilst Lee made an early dinner. Gammon steak cut into tiny weenie pieces, mashed potatoe, brocolli and eggs - Lovelly Jubbly even with regard to all the razor blades in it!!!

The strange thing was after just over an hour struggling through that I was wide awake!

No that is an understatement - I was completely wired and it was not until 06:50hrs. that I went to bed!

I just want to say sorry for copping out at times and leaving Lee and friends to cope!
Any help and support YOU can give her will be hugely welcome.
I do make a lousy patient!
