    What are some of the idiotic s ta tements said to you?

    When I said I was terminal, someone said, "We're all terminal." W hat a stupid remark. Yes, I know we all are mortal beings, but I'm referring to, terminally ill. Big difference. I have a date with date so the doctors believe. Of course we are all terminal but, I said to another lady...but do you fluctuate being diarrhea and constipation? Do you cough as if you're losing a lung? Do you have slight pain in the abdomen, do you have glaucoma, do your lose your balance? When you do, then you can talk to me about everyone is terminal. Terminally ill is another thing.

      I liked all of your responses. It's comforting to know there are others who know your plight. I am still not too ill. I swear by my Graviola (holistic capsules) as well as the chemo. I just walked 16 blocks today and I'm 73 and stage 4. Last week a put together my piano keyboard, and finally, I cleaned under my bed. (If I had not, a tree could have grown there.) I am due for another Pet Scan soon. I'm eager to know how I am really doing. Meanwhile, I am enjoying my new piano-keyboard and praising the Lord for each day. I posted a Christmas video, please look for it. I love Christmas décor and I hope you will like my video.

      Because most people are afraid of saying the "wrong" thing, they may avoid talking to us at all... I think this may be why we don't hear from friends and family after we are diagnosed like we think we should. Having a "terminal illness" definitely sensitizes us more to everything. They truly can't relate, I guess. It's sad to hear nothing, though!

      I have another PET scan tomorrow. I have been praying daily and I take Graviola (a plant also called Soursop), Graviola, look it up on the search engines it is supposed to help cancer patients.. I know of two other of my chemo friends who were helped by Graviola. On chemo I developed another tumor...I increased my Graviola, the tumor stopped growing. I cannot advocate this plant for others but I want you to know how I believed it has helped me. For believers, , God said, "See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food." Genesis 1:29. Therefore, I take GRAVIOLA..
