    Someone asked me a question that I had to think about before answering.

    They said, "I'm sorry you're having to go through this, but I hope you are still able to have a few good days." After thinking about it, I said: "I have lots of good days!"

    I think I still have more good days than bad, what about you? Since your diagnosis do you think you are on the plus side with good days or bad days?

      I would say it depends on when you asked me that. There were times that the bad days were the majority, then the good days would come. Overall, I would definitely say that the good outweigh the bad.

      I have way more good days than bad at this point in my journey. That's been true since I was diagnosed 6-1/2 years ago.

      Yes, I have had more good days than bad after my diagnosis almost seven years ago. Four really great ones come to mind:my daughter getting married, the births of her two daughters and my son graduated from college. I try to look for good things in every day.

      Yes, good days are good. I go out and work in my yard- goof around with my 3 coonhounds-I can cook without the heat making my face hurt for days-then hours-then it got better--I do woodwork-bake cakes-sleep with my hounds-go places with my family-drive my 5 on the floor mustang and truck-smile- laugh-eat and sleep. .

      I would say more good than bad. But in the beginning, it was the other way around. I hope to sway more to the good side mostly as I get nearer to the end of treatments.

      I see more good in my days than I did before cancer. What would have ruined my day before cancer really doesn't seem that important. And the wonderful things that I ignored before, are simply precious today.
