I know this isn't exactly the greatest, most fun, hottest, funniest, or most entertaining topic for a post that I could've thought of. However, I did see a tidbit the other day about Livestrong bands and the huge racket they've caused in the world market. I saw how many were opening up about their lives with or around cancer during interviews. It is odd that that sort of thing has made me want to open up. I really have never shared something like this with many people, especially over something like the internet. In fact, I do more to mask who I am than expose it. I've always been an extremely
closed person, even with friends and family members. Now, I don't know any of y'all really intimately, but we've had our share of fun and games, and y'all are a part of my daily life (yes, that was quite corny...feel free to insert some epic type music here...or collectively saw "aww"
So the question is, have you or your loved ones experienced cancer of any form?
I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on September 27, 2002, and underwent chemotherapy until April of 2005. I am off chemotherapy now and finally looking forward to life as it is. I'm quite fortunate and thankful to still be alive, but am also disappointed and depressed that I've missed out on three years of regular High School life. However, I suppose that this is the best example of where "looking at the big picture" is the key. I guess what I can say from this experience, other than to live a healthy lifestyle and to always look at the big picture...that some things in life, like your health, are more important than other things. Like I said, I'm really looking forward to finally take the harness off and just run. I can leave the limitations behind and live my life.
I really don't know why I posted this, but I was, for some odd reason, compelled to. Since there are a lot of people here, I wanted to see the various responses, I suppose.
This oddly feels like on of those "coming out of the closet" moments. So this
is what gays feel like when they announce their sexual preference.
No offense to anybody's gender preference made here. I just had
to make a stupid joke for comic relief.
