    Do you feel like music helps you get through this? The cancer, not the other thing going on right now.

      Yes!!! Most definitely! I have used music to help me get through some pretty dismal times. Like you said, you can just lose yourself for a while. I sometimes will pick one instrument and try to follow that line. It's an exercise in extreme concentration which can distract you from all else.

      I've been a musician for 50 years and music has always been a big part of our lives. Oddly though, I wouldn't say that I HAD to have it through each diagnosis. But it's always there.

      I am ADHD, and music helps block out the distractions while I'm working. I almost always have background music going. I even worked for Muzak for several years selling sound systems and music subscriptions.

      I've developed an exercise plan at home for now. We have DirecTV and the channels up above 800 are all music channels. I usually exercise to Disco or R&B. Best wishes to you! Thanks for sharing.

    My doctor wants me to do a 'teleconference" checkup tomorrow instead of coming to the office

      I have noticed a few ads on TV around here from some of the larger facilities in Nashville offering that. I'm not sure about it. I'm sure there are things that would work just fine. But, they can't do an ultrasound over the phone, can't look down my throat, or do anything that I would likely need. So for me, it wouldn't work.

      If they could figure out a way to give treatment remotely that would be great. After my trip to my oncology clinic yesterday I don't care if I go again until this is over.

      Ok for some treatment, I have 2 coming up...urology consult to see how I'm doing , just questions and a urinalysis I can provide thru my PCP, eye appointment with retina specialist I had surgery 3 months ago, I have questions and illustrations that will show my post op position to her...my next cancer infusion is May 5, trying to wean me off anyway, maybe delay it few weeks?, If not, told me they will bring me in private entrance to clinic so I'm not passing thru the entire Hospital...there is a charge I'm told for telehealth but at reduced appt.fee.
