What a beautiful post, from a truly beautiful woman!! My heartfelt congratulations to you on your good health and may you have many, many more healthy and happy years.

If I were you, I would send that dismal doctor with the dire prediction a note letting him know how well you are presently doing. It may enlighten him so that he thinks twice the next time before he decides to open his mouth and give someone else such a bleak prognosis!! Where do they find some of these characters??

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Debbie.

Great news, you are so right, the soul can not be touched by sickness. It is who we are.

Thank you so much, Debbie, for sharing with us. I know a lady who was once told that she didn't have much time to live. She told the doctor, "There's only one who knows when it will be my time to go... and it's not You!"

God bless and today and every day - Enjoy!

one year for me too


I can't believe it, but I guess I'll soon be coming up on the one-year anniversary of my diagnosis as well! This year has flown by. I can remember all of it, yet I somehow can't remember all of it. Does that make sense? I think my body wants to forget big parts of it.

I think the "new thinking" in medical training is that prognosis estimates should never be volunteered unless a doctor is certain that someone needs to deal with their final affairs in a pretty quick timeframe. But from what I understand, many patients ask "how long do I have," which forces the doctor to make some sort of estimate based on his/her past experience. So I have never asked, and not one of my doctors has ever volunteered. All I know is that 75% of people recur. And that means that 25% don't, so I plan to be in that group. :-)

I am so sorry that you've had to go through so much this year, and that you now have some constant pain in the butt (which is pretty funny to read about, but probably hurts like the dickens). I hope that the sexual stuff will work itself out. If you can't do certain things, there are always many other things that you can do.

God is gracious. :-) I am so thankful to be alive and healthy!

Hi Debbie,

Thanks so much for your post. I was diagnosed with MS last week and have been struggling mightily with how this diagnosis will change my life. Your post was a perfect reminder that my soul cannot be touched, even if my body is.

I am so glad that you are celebrating a cancer-free Thanksgiving!

A Big Hurray!!

Dear Debbie:

I'm new to this wonderful and encouraging site. Congratulations to you and I wish you lots of happiness and good health. I'm learning that it's very important to be positive regardless of prognosis as our state of mind is of utmost imprtance to our becoming healthier. I'll be seeing the radiation/oncologist on December 10 for the first time and will try and keep a positive outlook no matter what is diagnosed. I want to follow your good example and that of the many others on this site who truly put their hearts into helping one another.

You all deserve a big congratulations!! Thank you Debbie!!

Wishing you good health!!
