NALAKRATS to TAKE a LEAVE OF ABSENCE

To all my followers and readers: At the end of this day before the 4th of July, I will be shutting down regarding my participation on this site, which includes postings, answering posts, and communicating with my over 110 followers, who message me. I will do the same on another site.

I am working on 75 years of age, and even though I am very comfortable and have not worked for a living since 2005. I am clocking about 3-5 hours a day on HealthUnlocked. I have my own [None Standard Of Care Program] that requires 2 hours a day. Thus it has become overwhelming, as I get about 50 messages a day, or respond to other Postings, and also Post.

There is no need to start a rumor, as I can assure everyone I am very healthy, and not sick, but will continue my back door drug intake, and my supplemental program, and my Treatment vacation.

I am needing to spend more quality time with my wife, my religious studies, sermons that I give, my Congregation, my Bible, and my community of friends. I will continue to read those Posts that are Interesting, that provide science to this disease. Many come from Patrick, and will archive any/those from anyone, for future use that are important.

I feel bad, because of all the new Followers that have joined in the last 2 weeks or so---about a dozen of you. I had to make a cut off point. I do not know when I will return. But my gut thinks it will be when the summer ends and Fall is upon us.

I want to thank everyone here, from Darryl, our administrator, and to every one with Pca, and their advocates[wives, daughters, sons, etc.], for allowing me to make contributions to this site. I pray that I have helped at least one man here, with this disease. There are those that have unknowingly have helped me. Patrick, we will continue our Lunches, and Gusgold you will need to find someone else to send your Gator Pictures to.

Thank you all for this experience that I have had over the last 26 months.

I Remain Yours Truly, In Our War,

Nalakrats

Nalakrats has finally gone over the deep end. I have been talking to his daughter and she said he kept slithering into his neighbors pond at night, naked, trying to catch fish. They called the Gator Institute who caught him with a trap they set last night. For more information contact The Gator Institute For The Criminally Insane. He no longer talks just hisses and tries to bite...his daughter sent me the pic below.

You've only been here 26 months? It seems like a lot longer. Ha. Ha. (Joke.)

Seriously, relax and live well. There's more to this wonderful, mysterious world than so many "cancer thoughts" day in and day out.

Nalakrats, you have turned a (strange) name and typed words into caring and trusted counsel for many of us. We will miss that, but we know that a relaxed living into Life and Relationships gives healing and purpose and strength to live with this disease. Be Blessed, Ron

Nalakrats i look for your posts. You are an amazing warrior with true grit. Thank you for your service to others. I've learned a lot about this nasty disease and have come to trust you. Your desire to spend more time with your wife and community friends, Bible and Congregation is talking to you. Go and do so. I wish you many blessings and good health, lots of joy and peace.

Late to arrive on this scene. Les and I will miss reading you! You will always be with us in spirit. And speaking of that, last night I listened to Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell on “The Power of Myth”—recorded a couple months before Joe’s death. Campbell was another Nalakrats for me at one time, not that your beliefs are identical. Well-reasoned and deeply felt is what i’m trying to say. Go well. Love to your wife. Jan and Les

For everything there is a season. Thank you for contributing such wisdom during this season. My husband and I have learned so much from you and were prepared for many of the decisions and options for supplements in this battle. Blessings to you for the time and research you shared. May God richly bless you in this next season of life.

sorry to see you go, but understand fully. It is extremely stressful for those who are involved in this battle, so spend so much and to date, have so little to show for our collective efforts at trying to change the tide in the war. I hope that others will come forth to help us in getting the word out and do our best to offer some guidance, however limited its effects are. We all have something to offer, and my words of wisdom today say, get involved, get into a drug trial, for this is the only way we will find a way to fight and turn this horror story into a manageable disease.

Take care Nal and see you on the other side.

There is a vast quantity of information on Prostate cancer, in this World, swilling around out there, confusing and scaring everyone and you have succeeded in distilling much of which surrounds this painful, poignant subject into commonsense, bitesized nuggets of useful life enhancing help.

Thank you for your assistance personally and to the Group.

May your God go with you and return with you.

Our team "the Patients" are losing to "the Doctors" by a score of 3 to 0 in the Pca World Series. It's the bottom of the 9th inning with bases loaded and our slugger NALAKRATS is up to bat with a 3 and 2 count and the pitcher is winding up ready to unload his best pitch and "SORRY FOLKS BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THIS FALL FOR THE OUTCOME OF THE GAME".

Good Luck and Good Health.

I hope it’s a sabbatical as opposed to a permanent break. You give too much positivity to leave. I read your postings with interest but I understand the need to step away from everything cancer related. Hope to hear from you soon. 👍

Approx. 6 months ago, I was sitting w my better half at a McDonalds getting a coffee while we waited on some car repairs. I had recently found HU, and decided to take a quick look on my iphone. The headline of the post that day read something to the effect of - Nalakrats decides to fly solo, stop ADT,etc.... The post had a big impact on me. I read it to my wife. We discussed PCa, how it is changing our lives, and how grateful I was to have found this site where guys like this Nal character, and many others, so generously share their stories and hope for the future.

Nal - I'm late to replying here as I was on vaca and opted to wait to get back to resume visits to HU. Thanks for all you've shared, enjoy your break, and see when you get back.
