Well, I have done the drinky, facebook thing. Commenting peoples pictures. Aggressively deleting people from my friends list. Creating a Status that I can't beleive I even wrote and posting pictures of our good times as they are happening. Then.... the day after comes along. I start getting, "Why did you delete me from your facebook?".. lol.. obviously it's cause I don't have the guts to do it sober. Great thing about Facebook is you don't even have to respond. Anyway, I'm thinking they should have a breathalyzer attached to all internet accessing machines and if you blow over,, you are locked out. Hahaha Should I "Shark Tank" that one?
Next; Good times are priceless. Well, on that note, I won't be able to comment fully on that until Saturday night. I have 21 amazing friends going on a boat cruise/dinner/blues band dance... We have rented a bus to pick us all up and my one friends got us a great deal on the bus. It's only a 12 minute drive to the boat cruise but drinking and driving is a huge NO NO in my books. I am sure it will be a priceless night had by all.
Lastly, a newbie to the world of schwammies wrote me today. Discussing how she has a total new lease and look on life. I could not agree more. She discussed how riding on her jetski has a total new meaning. Way back when I was first diagnosed (2 yrs ago) I took a ride on a friends jet ski. I was diagnosed firstly with a cancerous tumour so at the time I thought I had about 2-3 yrs to live even after the treatment. "Angels on the Moon" (link to the right) is a song that was constantly on my mind as I would drive in my car endlessly with no thought of where I was going. Well, that day on the lake, the water so smooth like ice, the air still, the sun shining through a small haze across the water. I was in heaven. I still fight back the tears when I think about that moment on the lake knowing I may not be there 2 yrs from then but loving the life I had right then.
I know this is a long post, but every time I get a newbie write me it brings back the anguish and fear I had when I was first diagnosed and how alone I felt and scared but had to be brave for everyone else. I only wish I had a way to ease their fear too....
Have a listen to the song... cause even at one point I looked at my boyfriend and said "Tell me the truth,, is there something going on with me that you know and the doctors know but no one is telling me??? I need to know
