Attitude, attitude, attitude – to me attitude is everything, if you feel crappy well that’s your attitude, if you feel great that is also your attitude. The choice is yours, don't let cancer rob you of your greatest power that you have. When you take away the fear you take away the fuel that cancer needs to grow - don't give it that chance.
When your doctor tells you, you have prostate cancer is like a kick in the gut. The same thing happened to me, I was diagnosed on February 13, 2017 with prostate cancer my PSA was 144, Gleason score 9 and the cancer had metastasized in my bones. Not one of my happiest days on the planet.
Here’s what I said to the doctor, “I’m going to make you the most famous Doctor in America” he then asked, "how I was going to do that?" I answered "because I’m going to survive and get better”, he then said to me,” "if you do that you’ll be the most famous patient in America” I answered him back and said, “I can live with that!”.
Again, it gets back to attitude. Serious scientific research has proven that people who have cancer that have a positive outlook on life live longer than those who don't have such a positive attitude.
Well over a year ago I made a post on HealthUnlocked that I was doing the Pingshuai exercise. It is a simple exercise I do every morning and it takes about half an hour. It's all about getting you QI active. It really is easy to do and it makes you feel good. I've been doing this exercise as of today for 554 days straight – no breaks every day before breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, I have healthy organic oats and fruit, fresh orange juice which I squeeze myself and tumeric and ginger tea.
I also exercise, last week I rode over 220 miles on my bike. I have already biked over 3400 miles for the year so far. I see that not to boast but to say it's about attitude what the mind believes the body can achieve. I totally buy into that 100%..
Last Sunday I biked my age which at the moment is 74 years. I turn 75 in December and I plan next year on riding across America. Two things could possibly stop me, one is the coronavirus it still prevalent around the country and how I feel. There's no doubt in my mind that I can bike across America, I got the legs and I have the strong belief that I can do it. Again this gets back to attitude.
There is something else I would like to say, we didn't get PC by taking pills, we got cancer because of stress, lack of exercise and a crappy diet.
So I know you're probably wondering what is my PSA now, well it's down to 1.49. I take Cassodex and Tamoxifen I will be kicking those as well as my immune system gets stronger and stronger.
I really believe and I know this is definitely not the majority belief that cancer is the best thing that ever happened to me. I'm happier now than it ever been my life. It helps of course if you married to a wonderful woman like I am. So, life is good and remember its all about attitude.
To all my fellow PC’ers stay strong, start believing that you're going to get well and you will get well.
Just remember the power prayer and the amazing body that we've been gifted from God.
You are unstoppable!!
