Finally Lighting The Fire

Well howdy. It’s been a while, huh. The last time we talked, I was feeling a bit down. Under the weather. Beat up, broken, busted. I kept my head up, but it was tough. Well, good news. I’m back. And I have some exciting / awesome things to share. MS Ride I think I mentioned […]

1 Year Later, I got 2 words for Cancer

FUCK LEUKEMIA. Yeah, I said it. I think the above picture sums this whole mess up pretty well. Cancer can go ahead and suck it. Honestly, the list of people I have to thank is basically endless. If I start now, maybe I can repay the kindness by 2020. Maybe. First of all, my entire […]

Eff Bone Marrow Biopsies. Also; Migraines.

Well, my “6 month” tests have come and gone. I use quotes because it was technically 6 months and a week, but WHO’S COUNTING, AMIRITE!? Ahem. Anyway, I was really hoping to write this post with some kind of update, that my tests were great, and that I was going to start working, etc. etc. […]

However, a few interesting […]

The Questionable Power of Prayer

As a cancer-having agnostic, there is a funny bit of verbal annoyance that I have come across. In case you didn’t know, as an agnostic, I don’t prescribe to any official religion, nor do I feel particularly strongly that there is or is not a God and/or afterlife. While I lean towards there not being […]

Cancer is a fucking Thief

Cancer sucks. For real, guys. It’s funny that almost a year after my diagnosis, still, the most apt thing anyone has said since learning I got diagnosed has been “Man…that sucks.” I mean, what else do you say, really? Apologizing is kind of silly – it’s nobody’s fault. There are a million reasons why cancer […]
