Dear Forum Friends,
The hardest thing for me….
This has been on my mind for several weeks and I decided to go ahead and post it because it truly comes from my heart.
I know we all have to be ready to give and ready to receive comfort….. and I also realize prostate cancer is a very “personal” journey…
So ~ as you read this please know I understand your decisions…. But they are decisions I hope will change sooner than later…
Sharing your journey… will comfort not only you but ~ also others that will see your posting and realize …"Hey, I'm not alone!!"
The hardest thing for me… is not knowing!!
People who view postings and people who respond once and then we don't hear from them for weeks.
This truly breaks my heart!!! We can all be a source of comfort to you “now”.... especially during the times when you need to be able to talk it through…
We know your journey and the path you are on… because we’ve been there ~or~ we may be on the same stone at the same time…. so sharing can be a comfort…. This caring comes with no strings attached.
Your journey can be a source of comfort for others too!!!
You may not realize it but it is true.
Come out of the darkness with friends who are willing to pull you into the Light! Our hands are there for you when you step on a slippery or wobbly stone in your path with prostate cancer. Just reach out and we are “all” there for you.
Caring is Sharing…. Please know we care.
Knowledge is Power, Power takes away the fear, and
Sharing.. Warms the Heart!!! And makes you stronger… and it makes our hearts smile.
In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
New….January 6, 2007 Old Threads / Old Postings… Good Information
Having a support system in place before the surgery would be a blessing for all…but doesn’t always work this way… does it… but that’s okay… You’ve found us now!
I truly feel a lot of really good information is missed. There just seems to be so much out there and I'm sure a lot of people don't realize to go back 7, 10, 15, 20, etc…pages.... maybe I'm wrong... I hope I am J
There are sooooo many complete journeys on this forum… going back and looking over past postings would really round out a full visual of so many different decisions on biopsies, treatments, recovery/healing, and pre & post surgery. This in itself would reaffirm that this journey is a journey that has a lot of positives.
We share good, bad, and ugly…. It’s a true journey! And this journey is best traveled with friends.
Buddy & I have always said, “If we can help just 1 person”….
We posted this thread back in October 26th, 2006
We are so thankful we did….
The following links will take you to a Thread that will take you from
Day 1 of diagnosis… to Day 1 of his chosen treatment.
These are powerful threads ~ in my opinion.
It has taught us so much!!!
Thank you ~ Jetguy *Bill
