      I have written out most of my Story from beginning to now on facebook. I also included a different page to my really rough patch called 8 months of XXX.....Come to Barry Butler on facebook and friend me...Or I cold post some of it here. IF you watch some of the BC Ads for the Pink XXX you'd think it is all peaches and roses. If it weren't for some of the on line groups it would be incredibly lonely. I'll write more later.

      Thanks for posting that. A lot of it does straight up suck, and sometime I felt like I couldn't talk about that part. That I had to be upbeat and positive around most people. I did have a few including my husband I could be honest with.

      Great post! I am back on the cancer scare carousel- I am anemic again and have thickening in my sigmoid colon. Back to all of the doctors - praying it is nothing.

      I question whether I am really in remission or whether chemo will aggravate another round. I hear immunotherapy is a good answer. Then I hear that diet and herbs are preventative. It makes me feel powerless. When will the other shoe drop?

      "It's not all puppy dogs and happy fluffy clouds. "

      Every time I read that line I think about the little girl from the Minions movies and her obsession with fluffy Unicorns.

      I just found out the other day that my husband who has the cancer hasn't been telling me how scared he is that the cancer has come back. He mentioned body and joint pain and some other stuff. We both got food poisoning, he's sleeping on a broken down couch by his choice that we're replacing soon. He has sports injuries and damage from a stroke. I'm hoping some of his aches are from other things. He has an onc appt in a few weeks that he doesn't want to move up. So, yes, the fear of it coming back is always there even when it's not talked about.
