Roger C Posted July 23, 2006 Share Posted July 23, 2006 I didn't real know where to post this, so I am putting it in the general forum. I would like to apologize to all the members of this board. When I stated posting here, I got all kinds of support, it is one great place to be a member of with this disease. I haven't been around or posted in a while and let me explain why. When I began, I made a mistake of reading every forum and every post. I think that was my downfall. I was even posting comments to encourage others. Then I thought, this is idiotic, how can I encourage others, when my journey is just beginning. Then the last straw for me was when Charlie passed away. . Here was a man who fought so hard and his local paper even did a story on him. I got depressed. I know there are winners and losers in this game, but it really bothered me. At that point, I didn't log on the board anymore. I did join in to some Tuesday night chats. A friend of mine, Marie that I met by the forums and has the same type lung cancer as me, and we keep in touch by email. She has encouraged me and I hope I have encouraged her. Randy has been help to me in the chats and I thank him for that. As for me, I have just finished a second cycle of chemo. After the first, scans showed 80% shrinkage. Mid August I got for more scans and if things go well , then we do something with the kidneys. Again, I apologize and hope you all understand.
