      yes, keep us posted. You have taught me much since my journey began October 2014. Are you considering standard medical treatment? I don't do Facebook and hope you can make it to the library soon. Thank you for.sharing your knowledge. Could someone forward this post to Facebook please?

      (((Hugs))) I'm sorry to hear about the problems (computer and healthwise). Am keeping my fingers crossed that things turn around for you.

      I've just sent you a friend request on Facebook and have messaged you there with copies of the responses left here.

      Hey Doreen....Thanks...NO NO treatment. When or IF its time for pain management I'll call Hospice. I signed up with them two years ago. Lots of back problems and have some blood coming in my mucous. Chest x ray clear.....Did thoracic and rib x rays and nothing much showed up. I have trouble clearing my throat and maybe I did it too hard. Who the XXX knows but I'm getting really tired of this whole stinking thing. I started the Ketogenic diet two weeks ago. I also have a swollen salivary glad behind and under my left ear. My Doc says to suck on lemons and chew gum and drink ten glasses of water a day. I should be in ketosis by now and am burning fat to ketone bodies for fuel....Cancer cells can't convert....I am not eating ANY Grains at all...no bread etc. Cut out fruit to very little and eat salmon and eggs....I eat a huge veggie salad twice a day heavy on the dark green leafy veggies. Also almonds and walnuts and sunflower and pumpkin seeds and lots of water...I Generally feel good. I've noticed that my focus is much better....

      I had that salivary problem last year. I don't know if you are eating dairy, but my doctor recommended Greek yogurt.

      I am so sorry that you're having health problems, Barry. And, that you're having PC problems at the same time. :( :( Praying the health problems resolve themselves sooner rather than later and that the issues are not cancer related.

      Barry, I'm puzzled: if you can't get email, how can you get Facebook? To get Facebook you need a computer, too? Best, Carol

      Carool, he uses a library computer.

      Schlegel, I know that, but he suggested that we friend him on FB and contact him that way. I'm wondering why he can't just be contacted through WhatNext, as always. Why Facebook, since he needs a computer either way.

      @Carool, it may have to do with the time constraints on library computers. One may have only so much time allowed (the limit at my library is an hour). Then, if other people are waiting to use a machine, you're basically done for the day. It may be that Barry is focusing on Facebook so that he has only one site on which to concentrate, rather than spend time surfing.

      [email redacted], right!! I don't access WhatNext through email ... I do it through the Web. So, I am confused too, unless @Ejourneys has it right that he only wants to concentrate in one thing while online. Hopefully, he will have a computer soon and will be able to participate here as always in the not too far future.

      Live, are you requesting my email address? I'll send it, but it'll probably be redacted: [email redacted].

      You can post an email address by disguising it. Although you must be absolutely certain you want it posted. This is a public site and anyone with access to the web can see it. If you post it like info @ whatnext . com you can see it. Just be sure it's an address you don't mind being out there. Or, if you want to connect with someone off the site, send me who you want to connect with, and we can exchange your addresses offline.

      Hey, Barry! I'm sorry you're having problems. I can't do Facebook---I forgot my password and they locked me out.

      I don't want to aggravate you, but have you considered clinical trials or another doctor's opinion? Have you had bloodwork to see if your latest diet has enough nutrients for you?

      Wishing you the best of health, plus some happy, happy days!!

      Hi Barry, I also as I am sure many others wonder how you are doing. I considered the ketogenic diet, how are you doing on it?
