    Decision Point (Getting Back Up): All of my decisions were ushered by my parents, not saying that they made them for me. I had 100% of control as long as I was coherent. For the past 5 years after the Dr. told me that 'the tumor looks like a scar on the MRI' then I've had the hardest time picking up my broken dreams and plans for the future being disabled now. And the economy has made it even harder.

    Loss (Lost loved one): I lost a good bit of body function. In surgery February 5, 2002 then due to Radiation and Chemotherapy then doctors were able to remove 80%-85% of my tumor that had my nerves embedded. I also lost a friend of mine...same age...same diagnosis (Astrocytoma). That could had been me in that coffin. Worse funeral that I've gone to by far.

    Celebration (Anniversary): I got a tattoo for my 10th year anniversary. It was also my 26th birthday. Who knows, it could had been my 19th anniversary since I had been misdiagnosed???

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Infection): Vancomycin is such a bruttle drug to your veins. I had to have a stint put in.
