What’s it mean now?
A death sentence?
More suffering?
To make me break down?

How can it go
from bad to worse?
How can it be
that I didn’t know?

How’d it get there?
When did it start?
How far has it spread?
How is this fair?

All of this fear
No place to hide
No one to talk to
Nobody near

My appetite’s gone
and my need to sleep
Too much to do
So much to get done

Don’t know what to say
Will it be to late?
To fix the things
that are broken today?

I want to reach out
But I’m so afraid
No one will listen
So full of doubt

I thought it was stress
how did I know?
It would be something
Something much worse

I still can’t believe it
I’m still in shock
Wake me when it’s over
and I’ll try to forget

Somebody tell me
It was just a bad dream
A scary nightmare
That’s all it will be

I just want to cry
I just want to scream
I want to get angry
Not lay down and die

My room is dark
Except for the light
That comes from my screen
As I pour out my heart

I feel so alone
With so much to say
I wish someone would call me
Just pick up the phone

Been here all day
with nothing to do
But dwell on my sadness
and the price I must pay

I don’t know anymore
what I’m to do
To make it all better
Like it was before

I need to be strong
I need to hold on
Day after day
Until I have won

To do it alone
that will be hard
But I think I can beat it
And keep movin’ on

We all have to play
the hand we are dealt
I will face it head on
I will not turn away

Oh! You poor woman!
Not pity, but just sadness for you.
My heart goes out to you.
I had to read some of your past posts and it just isn't fair. You've been dealing with enough, already.
I'm sorta speechless. What can I do or say.
Wrap your arms around yourself and just hug tight. That's me. Squeeze. Wiggle. That's me.
I'm so sorry. Damn!

goodatpoetry2 Thank you.
I am not looking for pity, just venting. I am scared, that's normal, I suppose. I just feel as if, everytime I start to feel a little better, I get kicked in the gut again!
Makes me wanna scream!

...'everything happens for a reason' as they say...whoever they are...

...OK! ENOUGH ALREADY! Wish they would go pick on someone else for awhile...I'm tired...

Good luck on the 14th. I go for my seeding surgery on the 19th.

Yes it is scary, "C" word is funny that way.

Hang in there.

Well I lost a son in 1984 and a wife too cancer in 1996, in two weeks, then in 1999 RIFed from my job of 33 years. I can handle this shit also.

But don't let anyone make you feel like a leeper or funny in anyway.............they do no or understand.

Lets see, I have a brother who has had now some 30 surguries, two kidney and two pancrease transplants, and they have both now failed agin, he is back where he started 30 years ago, diabetic and on dialysis again, but he gets up everyday, just because he can and says that is a blessing all in itself! He blames no one, asks for nothing and trys to get done everyday whatever he can. I doubt it happens for a reason, but he is a hero to me just for the attitude he has through it all! You have friends in the oddest places, their arms are there to hold you in the tough times and darkest lonliest times, even if we are not even there with you! Just know, we care!!
Always, Jeff

Thanks Jeff,
I keep saying it...I realize, it can always be worse. I agree with you that he is a hero. I am trying to keep that stiff upper lip, it's all new to me and I do admit...I have a tendency to feel sorry for myself. I try to catch myself when that happens and focus on something more constructive.

...after all, none of us really knows how long we have in this each day, get up, breathe in breathe out...stop and smell the roses...and smile...what else can ya do!?

I think about those kids in Africa, who have to walk across hot, desolate deserts...for days and days...just to get a little food and water, some never make it and wither down to skin and bones...suffering...
It can always be worse...
I am here, in America, where there is help and food, and there are medical facilities...even for folks who can't afford it on their own...I am glad to be here...and thankful for what I do have...

I just feel as if I should be doing more, getting in all the things I have always wanted to do...I don't wanna slow down, for fear I will stop...

I appreciate the encouraging words...all the best to you and your brother...

And you must think I am kidding, well I am not! Do me a favor, this will not be romantic, it will not be hot, it may not even be sweet, just call my florist Joe Baker, just give him my name and tell him it is you! My Broken Heart, and he will bring you Roses, daily if you wish! 254-0900 is his number! Having things is worthless, unless you have someone to share with! I'd be happy to share with you!
Take a chance! You'll be happy with the choice, just for friendship!
you are a wonderful brave soul, thanks for being so strong and independant!
557-2390 if you ever need it!

I see I am not the only man who can "feel" you thru your words and desire you respectfully from your pictures. Truly you are the "onion" theory as you have many layers the more you read your profile. Pretty cool to see guys pouring some love toward you as it seems you are a worthy person to know. Best of luck in your battle. Tom.
