I just got my 6 month post op PSA report and it looks like my membership in the Zero Club is still good, <0.01. :)

The anxiety of impending doom really does a number on your head and I found myself creating scenario's that were not helpful or pleasant. God I hate this disease!

Anyway, I guess I'm still a member for the next three month.

That's my biggest problem right now; looking for the worst but hoping for the best.
 
Congratulations on your zeroes.   I hope you see many more in the years to come.

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the good will and support.

I had an interesting dream a couple of months ago. I was being chased by a bunch of figures who wore white robes and pointed guns at me. I managed to dodge behind trees and obstacles so they couldn't get a clear shot. Funny thing is, I never saw a face of any of the characters, I only knew the danger if they were to draw a bead on me. I managed to get myself cornered where I knew my fate was coming until (and here is the fantasy part) I simply rose up into the air where all of the bad guys were in sight and by means I don't understand, my shape became a cylinder which was being compressed end to end bulging in the middle. Then suddenly a bright blue energy emitted from the cylinder vaporizing all of the bad guys, I then awoke.

I told myself that these bad guys were the cancer and with my inner strength i managed to defeat them, I keep holding on to that vision when I find my mind treading on the dark side, it does help.
