    Didn’t think you were! 😂😊❤️ You’ll face this challenge, just like you’ve faced others, with grace, wit, compassion, and attitude to spare.

  • When I started posting on here you were the only one I was literally afraid of.  That is not a  bad thing.  A strong woman not afraid to speak her mind, that is an exceptional attribute to have. I realize I’m on the “don’t bother with” list from your comments a long time ago but I’ve been thinking about you every day since you came forward with your unfortunate news.  Should I say something, not say anything….questions running around in my head and I decided to tell you I’m pulling for you, thinking about and praying for you as well. I’ve never seen an ounce of weakness in your posts over all these years so there’s no reason to believe you won’t prevail.  Such a strong woman, I envy you.  You are going to be fine.  All these people you’ve never met pulling and praying for you will help but your bad ass attitude and enormous amount of love from your husband will ensure you’ll be here a long time.

    Gosh, thank you all so much.

    cblock, your words really touched me and I’m happy you posted. I apologize for what happened…when? I honestly don’t remember, but let’s just chalk it up and out. It’s inconsequential :)
  • Absolutely agree.  Never thought I could care for someone I’ve never met but once again, I’m wrong.  For whatever reason, I’ll find out someday I’m sure, just feel like I need to follow you through this.

    Oh Hedo, I won't deny your post brought tears to my eyes and I am typing through those tears.  Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers (even if you don't believe).  I'm happy you have a strong support system.  Stay strong,and be well. Please.

    Had to laugh at the poster who admitted fearing you.  Can't say I don't relate.  But it's been what, 20 years??  This is for you Hedo; hope it brings you comfort

    Thank you, P&E. All or no denominations are always welcome — I figure if it comes from the heart, it’s all good ;)

    I am SO not a fearsome person! And man, 20 years. Been a ride, huh?

    I haven’t listened to this in ages. Musical serenity.

    It really has been a ride, Hedo.  Musical serenity . . use that to ease your current situation.  Music has always been a savior for me, whether I needed a boost of energy, a good cry or just plain comfort.  There is a reason we have continued to stay involved in this message board, and the music is what brought us all together initially.  And just so you know, I have become "somewhat" of a Tool fan and that never would have happened had it not been for you.  Be well dear.

    Yo, Jedi. We were driving back from a hockey tournament down the Cape last weekend when this particular town popped up on our navigation display. 



    I thought you’d appreciate the name, so I had the hockey player snap a picture. 

    Anyway, this has gotta be where @Poncier lives, right? Dude, what’s there to do in Assinippi? Good place to go on a bender? Could suck there, too, I suppose. :i_dunno:

    OK, that literally made me laugh out loud. Yup, you know what I like, sir. 

    P&E, very cool! Tool has been played almost every day recently. Now we need to get you into Puscifer!

    On day 4 of no more smoking. Probably not the best timing stress-wise, but sure is a test of my will. After forty years and the slap of cancer, I’d say it’s time, no?

    I’m proud of myself for doing this, no matter how late in the game. It is SO goddamn hard though. I did not expect the extreme mood swings and how difficult it is riding out each urge. But I have to do this, for myself.  

    Not giving up cannabis — fuck knows I’m gonna really need it in the next few months — though most likely going with edibles and tinctures.

    Good for you! Nicotine addiction is a tough one to kick, but there's no doubt that you can do it!
    I LOVE MUSIC.
