I've been off a couple of days and just read your notes here!
I'm so very happy to hear from both you and Rod!
We your friends here are passionately immersed in the sincerity of our fight.
I know advice here seems a little pushy sometimes, and we are all so vulnerable at one point or another in our fight. I personally would just keep looking here for that bright and loving message that you need
(that very likely some one of us here will try to provide)
- and forgive those of us that mean well and miss the mark.
I compare our work here to a serve-yourself-buffet at my Great Aunt's house.
These were the ultimate covered dish suppers as no one would want to disappoint this lady!
(Humorous aside: Once visiting my loving Aunt as an early teen, I thought I was eating the best creamed corn in the world and thanked my Aunt. I was informed - to my dismay as I didn't believe I liked yellow squash - that there was no cream corn on the table!)
Concerning the intricacies of your treatments at this point, as Swim says, I'd ask Tony and his cohorts about
the details of your chosen treatment path. Check out the new link in Tony's signature! He is doing some terrific work there!Technology is improving daily and side effects are diminishing!
I'd stick with Swim and Myman-Susan for relationship management & decision-process cues from your perspective.
And look to the rest of us (Norskie, GreenAcres, Ms. Blue, myself and ALL of "our gang" here at Healingwell
) for true-blue fidelity in friendship
.Some things don't change
no matter what our choices -
- and no matter where we find ourselves.We love you both. Period.
