Topic: Never would've thought it in a million years

Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. My husband was diagnosed with CC this afternoon. As I heard the news all I could think was how we had thought it was everything else but cancer....cancer is something others get...not us...not in a million years did we ever think we would be preparing to fight the battle of one's lifetime...a battle that we know we have to win. This is our first posting...my very best friend ever told me all about the site about 30 minutes ago...and now I have added this  organization to our arsenal of weapons to win this war against cancer.  Superman, Spiderman, Wonderwoman....they aren't superheroes...you all are...patients, families and loved ones...all of us fighting this monster are the real superheroes...and Lee, Emilee and I want you along for the attack...and we must not forget our biggest superhero of all....Jesus Christ!

Re: Never would've thought it in a million years

HeatherKP-  It is a fightable disease! I'm on your team.  Many decisions ahead.  A few things to consider: particular supplements, EFT, Silva Mind system, staying active but not over due it, 2nd and 3rd opinions if felt needed, positive thinking, not to big of a diet change but some, depending on treatment and if, I say again if it becomes to debilating don't hesitate to apply for SSDI while fighting and reduce as much stress as possible in your lives.  Dealing with CC is plenty on it's own.  Last but not least Prayer, belief, and hope for the cure to be around the corner.  Until then take control and manage and listen to your body it'll tell you if something is working or not.  Precribed meds take before symtoms.  Don't be afraid to adjust meds a little to keep your body in tune. example if you get to a point where pain meds are needed on a continual basis, use stool softener trial and error amounts to keep regular bowel movements.  I think I better stop now.  I could rambler for an hour or so.  Sorry you had to join the site. But  we are all certainly here to provide as much advice, opinions and share experiences as we can.  I know I threw a bunch at you guys and hope you don't panic but being kowledgable and proactive makes a big difference.  March 16th will be nine years of many battles for me but the war still continues for me.  Yes it has taking quite a toll on my body but I just have this attitude problem with CC Ha! Wish you guys the best!
God Bless You Both,

I know how you feel.  When my husband started feeling tired, run down and always wanted me to scratch you could have NEVER would I have thought about cancer, much less this kind.
Now I need information and am hoping this website can provide it from people who know what we are going through.

Re: Never would've thought it in a million years

When I first got sick cancer, never mind CC, never once entered my mind.  I had had all the screenings, didn't smoke, blah blah blah.  fooled me!  Sometimes I have to wonder about this big cosmic joke, but I realize now i don't have time to dwell on it, I have a son to raise and my biggest job right now is to stay on this planet as long as possible so I can do that.

Yea!  We thought it was Hep B.  after looking online!!! Joke was on us.
