    Sorry, but I have bounced back a thread with all the references to cancer. As some of you know, my husband has been battling cancer for nearly 12 months, and it is positive attitude, sense of humour that gets you through. I spoke to a young woman 38yrs old with 2 little kids, a few months ago while hubby was having his chemo, and after the first couple o f minutes I knew this lady had no hope of fighting it let alone beating this horrible disease because of her attitude, she said she was "terminal", explained that my husband is too but still continues to fight it, she just said, "No, I'm terminal" and that wass the end of the conversation. 2 weeks later, I found out that she had passed away. So, if anyone has the attitude, and fortitude to fight cancer, doesnt matter what it is or where it is. Russell has wide spread small cell, it has invaded every part of his body & yet he continues to fight. We laugh together and we cry together, I am his strength, as he is mine. Having our baby Pei, Geisha so sick is having an affect on him, but again I'll fight my arse off to keep her alive for Russell, if I lose one I know I will lose the other. We really didnt need the complication of Russell tripping & falling flat on his hip last Saturday & breaking it. So last Sunday he had to have a full hip replacement but is recovering from that beautifully, he is very very emotional but it is nearly all to do with the fact that he is in hospital, he hates it, and he cant see Geisha, and she is too sick for me to take her down to the hospital, altho he has been transferred back to our local which is so much better for him and me too, she would not be able to walk the distance into see him. Long winded post I know, sorry bout that, but couldnt let the "cancer" threads go by without sticking my bit in

    I couldn't agree on attitude with you more! My step bro was told he had 6 months...yer right he said and fought another 11 1/2 years. My step Uncle is the same, I can't remember what cancer he has, how long as he has had it as to him it is just something he has to battle at times and he has staff in stitches of laughter when he is in for treatment. He lives life to the fullest he can, was a rally driver and still does the odd charity one. I told him seriously a few years ago by letter that any time he needed, I would drop everything and go to him. He rang me and told me how very much that meant to him... then started with his humour. He rang me one xmas day, told me he was at the end of my drive way (lives in QLD) I was so excited. The old bugga wasn't but he was setting me up for a few months later, ringing me and telling me he was at the pub in my town. Of course I did not believe him....till he put the publican on, lol.

    All of you battling cancer please keep up the fight it can be beaten against all odds. My dad fought melanoma and secondarys for 30 years, ( may be it was all the booze he drank.) M.I.L had 3 quarters of her stomach removed at age 68, she refused chemo and was told she had 6 months left. 16 years later no cancer has ever returned, at 83 years old she's frail but her spirit is as strong as ever. My thoughts are with you all.
    Hugs to you all.
    Ahh as for those trolls, I'm afraid my answer to them is not fit to be in my head let alone where any one else can see it.

    Re trolls: Agree with Di in some ways, depends what mood I'm in, how much the troll irritates me, have I got anything better to do, ...

    Depends if they hit a sore spot, too...

    Re cancer I think laughter is everything. Without it we'd all die sooner. I watched my uncle die, badly.
    I watched my cousin die leaving behind new young children who will never know her.
    I watched my first husband as he lay in hospital beside his dying sister constantly giving his bone marrow to keep her alive long enough to give birth.

    I don't think I handle cancer well, come to think of it.
    I admire anyone who can battle it with laughter without instead of tears.

    It sounds awful but I used to have a real horror of sick people. I hated being around them and had to really keep my feelings under control so I could be sympathetic and kind. To put it bluntly sick people made ME feel sick.

    This all changed when my mother was diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas (sp?). It was too far gone for any treatment. When pressured the specialist said she might make it to Christmas if she was lucky and did she want a script for pain killers? She never took any painkillers at all.

    Christmas was mum's favourite time of year and she was determined to enjoy it in good heath and as many as possible afterwards.

    I took her to the Ian Gawler sessions on living with cancer. These are fantastic. Meditation, allowing the body to heal itself through correct attitude and diet and also how to die well. I learnt as much as my mother through these sessions and have become a nicer person because of them.

    Mum had eight good Christmases after diagnosis. Her death was not related to the cancer. For the two weeks prior to her death you could see she was getting ready to let go. Her mind and her body knew it was time. She was hospitalised the day before she died and I was with her at the end. She died peacefully and well. My BIL who is a Thai Buddhist said a good death showed she was not only worthy in this life but in her previous life as well.

    My gentle Buddhist BIL is fighting his own battle with cancer now but he's doing well.

    Attitude really is everything.

    I suffer from a condition where 50% of people are still alive 5 years after diagnosis. If I chose to look at it as 50% of people are dead 5 years after diagnosis I probably wouldn't be typing this today.

    Is the glass half empty or half full? To me it's always half full and maybe a wee bit more.

    Don't feed 'em and they magically vanish never to return.
