A whole new world

Seriously, what is happening? If nothing else this virus situation is curing a bunch of complacency and injecting a lot of people with a case of the “WTF’s?” Nothing makes sense anymore but then again maybe it never did and we were too busy to notice.

Having cancer in a Covid-19 world is a bit daunting. To voluntarily suppress the immune system seems counterintuitive but western medicine is offering me nothing else so I roll the dice and hope for the best. There is a part of me that wants to completely reject the chemotherapy and take my chances but I am too scared to make that decision.

There was an article (which I will post) about people who live longer, that featured a story about a man in his 60’s who was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1976, he was told to do aggressive treatment but that it probably wouldn’t increase his life all that much, he was given 6-9 months to live. The man refused to do anything and decided to go back to the island in Greece that he was originally from. He went home with the intention of dying. His cancer went away and he outlived all of the doctors who diagnosed him. I fantasize about going to a Greek island and living a life like Stamatis Moraitis who died but not from cancer, in 2013.

If we can learn one thing from this crazy time, it is that slowing down is not a bad thing. This can be an opportunity to pick a different direction or get much needed rest from our ridiculously busy pre-Covid lives.

I mowed the lawn today and even did some weeding, a task I couldn’t have dreamed of doing this time last year. After rereading the New York Times article I think I might even indulge in an adult beverage tonight just because.

Until next time ❤️
