    Ironmikey, I'm here to find out what's going on this week with you? Did you call for a referral to a counselor? I was surprised we didn't hear from you. Best wishes.

    I am looking for another WhatNexter to write their story out for me to be featured on our Blog for our WhatNexter of The Week. Would you like to do that for us? It's pretty simple, you don't have to be a "writer". You just write out what has happened with your diagnosis from the day you found you had a problem and went to the doctor up through the current day. I usually just say to cover these points in your story and it writes itself.

    How did you know you had a problem?
    What was your diagnosis and stage?
    What was the plan for treatments?
    What have you had done so far, surgery, chemo, treatments?
    What sort of side effects have you had?
    What are some of the worst parts of the whole thing so far?
    What have you learned about yourself, your family, friends, and life in general since diagnosis?
    How has cancer changed your life in general?
    How are you doing now? Still in treatments, maintenance, cruising smoothly and just watching?

    If you write that out and email to me greg @ whatnext . com with a few pictures we will edit and put it together. You don't need to worry about most of the technical things while writing it out. We will make it flow, if needed, and edit for grammar and spelling, etc.

    Thanks and I hope you can do this for us! Again, thanks for being with us and helping others.

    Greg

      Hey, Greg! I'm sorry, but I don't really have time to do that. Also the fact that my GIST is not shared by many other people makes me think that other cancers would be more appreciated. Sorry. I'm not feeling that well. Best wishes.

    Coopswifey, I hope you are feeling better and waking up feeling blessed to have such good medical treatment for your cancer. If not, your doctor needs to know immediately. There are things he/she can do for you, such as medicine and/or a counselor for cancer patients to talk about things. If you are still crying every day, please let your doctor know. God bless you. Remember this is all temporary and things will get better. Best wishes.
