    I got a chuckle out of this. My dog and cat are what's keeping me going right now.

      That would be reversed at my house - the cats would LOVE to bury one of the dogs. (They love the other one.)

      It is very normal. I had been diagnosed in October of 2012. My life was out of control with surgeries, and just comprehending the diagnosis. I started chemo that year in December and really didn't do much. My daughter had to shop for me and I couldn't even go down to see my mom and brother. The holidays were just so-so and by New years eve, I was in the hospital.
      But we made it through and the next year, I finished treatments and my daughter got married. To us it was just a bump in the road. And six years later, we are back to celebrate the holidays and enjoy two granddaughters.
      Hang in there. Next year will be better.

      Oh yes, what you are feeling is quite normal. Many is the time I hugged a fellow church lady, felt her hair streaming down her back and thought, "If only mine could have been spared as some people's had." I heard happy voices all around me and wondered if I would ever feel like that again. Hobbies, Christian music, and God got me through that terrible time. It always feels roughest when going through active treatment, and the following year, you should feel more like yourself again. I know just a few months after active treatment, my hair was back enough I could leave my wig at home, and those same church ladies, whose luxurious hair I longed to have, now gushed over new curls that were popping out! Right now, you probably have the urge to cry, and that's normal. We all do from time to time. Just try to find something you love to do and dive head long into it! Merry Christmas. HUGS and God bless.

      Remember the old saying that we have to have some bad days to know and appreciate our good days. Almost everyone has bad and good days in life. Wouldn't it be boring if every day was just alike?

      I love a box of donuts! My Girls know this and treat me sometimes on the weekend. They will stop and get some fresh ones and come over for coffee. It's our special time.

      When I was having chemo the best tasting food was Krispy Kreme donuts, and I'd eat five daily. Gained twenty pounds. Can't stand them now, though I like Donut Plant donuts that we have here.

    I love to go down by the creek and get a bonfire going! It's peaceful and is good for the mind and attitude. But now with cold weather coming, we won't have much opportunity to do that until Spring.

      That's gorgeous. I agree that it would be a fabulous way to get away from it all...
