I'm hopping on CB without knowing what may come out of the remainder of my mind. I apologize ahead of time for any inapropriate comments...but, here we go: Oh, also, sorry for typos. i have yet to get a dictation s\w and I have only one functional hand. Yea, very frustrating for a writer but I will have s\w soon. Anyway, my story...I had a brain tumor that lead to a surgery requiring a tennis ball sized hole to be drilled into my skull in order to remove a golf ball sized tumor aptly named Mulligan. The surgery left me with a battle to walk again, a fight to regain the use of my left arm, a rocking plate of titanium in my head and a scar that would make Jason Voorhes proud. As a firm believer that something like this could never happen to me, I was caught off guard to say the least, as would anyone. And my life has become a whirlwind, no fluffy adjectives needed...cancer of the brain.
A friend told me about this community and here I am, ready to bare my soul, find commonality with others all too familiarwith the war I fight and to speak my heart and mind freely as I don my armor, sharpen my sword and continue the battle I MUST win. I often struggle to find the strength but here i hope i have found a place where tears are not weak and fear is an adequate reason to struggle, a place where I can not only get, but give.
