I've seen some people asking about life expectancy. One of the first things I was told when diagnosed with Stage 4 was "Don't focus on how long you have. Focus on having a quality of life that you can have."
I thought a simple way to do that would be to share how long you've been kicking since you were first diagnosed. It's always inspired me and given me some inner strength when I am seeing people doing good.
I always tried to think positive but it took me almost three years to truly realize that I am not going anywhere for a good long while. Other than the fact that I'm over 300lbs, I just feel like a regular guy. A recent bonus is the insane hunger that didn't help with weight loss from taking Prednisone has disappeared.
I just realized that next month is going to be 4 years.
Here's to 4 more!
