    How do you keep your mind out of the basement of dark?

    Every now and then I just get negative and can't lose it. I can't get positive. How do you do it?

      Bengal,

      We're out there alright. Here's my remedy for when all else fails: Chocolate and trash TV. Bake some chocolate chip cookies. (I keep some of the pre-made dough ones, like Nestle's, on hand for when I'm really in the dumpster). Eat them while watching some really trashy TV. Tonight you have some "real housewives" from somewhere on Bravo. Enjoy the sugar rush on a cold dark snowy night and be grateful that you're not one of the useless women you're seeing squabbling with one another on the TV program. You'll make it. I hope this helps.

      Kp2018, thanks for that but works better in theory than in practice. So far I've managed to come up with a chocolate cookie mix "sell by" date Oct 2015! As for "housewives," no thanks, but there's enough other junk out there. I'll find sonething. Appreciate your response.

      Hey, just sayin', 4 year old chocolate cookies aren't bad----- when it's all you have. Actually, the process of mixing and baking cookies did take my mind of other things. After a frigid weekend the weather here is supposed to mellow out a bit through Thanksgiving. That will make "things" more tolerable. Some days I don't think of cancer at all. Some days it's all I can think of. I have a follow-up in a week. Always sends our minds spinning.
