We love you, kingarthur.

Semi-related, ask your docs if there are any psilocybin studies ongoing that you'd be eligible for. Not sure if tripping is your bag but it seems to help a lot with other people I've known on that same train.
I've promised myself a beyond-heroic-dose if my cancer recurs.
to be specific: “psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy”
bawbag, like in the "Trip Treatment" NY article? I loved that article. Spam:
Exactly exy, Johns-Hopkins and one or two pilot studies in the UK have shown some remarkable results: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/single_dose_of _hallucinogen_may_create_lasting_personality_change
Awesome link. The NYer article is where I first heard about the default-mode network, and it informed my thinking on developmental psychology and the nature of psychedelic drugs quite a lot.

You have our love, man. For what it's worth.

I disagree with your description, kingarthur!
She talks like she's going to reveal to him she's being gangstalked by aliens out to silence her government secrets, then drops the truth bomb of relief from crazy, hooking him totally. He thought he was on insane date #67284678 but found a real person. This chick blows the Mystery Method clean out of the water.
Be strong, peacock often.
She is a smooth operator, for sure.

Best to you kingarthur. I'm glad you are sharing these and it helps with reflection on the subject, in real terms.
As a current "survivor" (I think survivor is kind of bullshit since I have no doubt cancer will come back and get me at some point) I see how this video does a help show how the outside world pegs people living with cancer as victims. The efforts to try to make you feel better or noting "you don't look sick" or "hey at least you're in treatment". Yeah that stuff doesn't help. It just helps distance people with cancer from "everyone else".
You know what does help? Recognizing that that person is still a living, breathing, contributing human being. Asking what someone with cancer needs from you is all you need or can do to help. Most of the time, just some company of people that don't get all down and depressed around you goes a long way. I hope you're getting at least some of THAT kind of support.
I'm getting it on Facebook but not in real life all that much. Unfortunately.

Obviously 5 stars, even though I may not watch it.

Congratulations on surviving 2016, by the way.

I barely know you, but I think about you often.
Last year I offered to draw you something...you suggested owls. Not sure if you saw the result (you've had more important things to deal with) but here's the link again:
It's quite silly.
If you would like the original I would gladly send it to you.
Yikes, that is really good.
I'll throw my hat in the ring - I told myself I'd never draw again after a near nervous break down. I was practicing 6-7 hours a day, everyday, until my fingers failed. This went on for 5 years. I had to get my supplies out of the attic....
Outstanding both of you. KA, I can't explain why, but t I think of you often wishing you that you are in a stable state of mind and laughing without discomfort and enjoying the foods you like.
Something about this island in the internet ocean that has been largely frozen in time.
15th, why the nervous breakdown with drawing? Can you share anything other than this? How were you able to put so much time into it?
Thanks! These are lovely! Even though I don't have testicular cancer, I do carry my balls around in a wheelbarrow!
And I love the owls. You guys are great.
I made the artistic choice of rendering your balls wheelbarrow sized due to the bravery and grace you continue to show. I wish you the best, thanks for hanging out.
Gmol, I'm sorry I cannot continue, I'm afraid I'd collapse under the weight of my raw talent and technical prowess.

Sorry for what you have to go through, Kingarthur.
Hoping your pain is being managed well...
No real pain yet. I'm kind of fearful for when that happens because they tell me it'll be a pretty painful form of pseudo-tachycardia from where the primary tumor is in my esophagus. I've also got tumors in my lymphatic system and one on the liver just due to metastasis. So, it could hurt a lot and they've already given me a very small amount of oral morphine but that was primarily to deal with the pain of chemotherapy when I was on taxotere, cisplatin, and 5-FU all at once for 18 weeks when this started.
5-FU is a rough bastard. Can't imagine taking it concurrently with those other meds...

Really establishing a legacy there huh
Kick rocks, chowderhead.
This is fucking gross and you know it.
You're fucking gross and you don't know it.

What do you need?
Ideally: a loving girlfriend. I'm on Tinder and OKCupid and I'm going to try out this one for cancer patients that's free. I'm only open about my diagnosis on OKCupid as I haven't tried the cancer match site yet. I kind of find Tinder and OKCupid infuriating. Tinder has matched me with only one person who was not a robot and I'm frankly pretty sure that the site is only for hookups between beautiful people, no matter what anyone else may tell you. I am no longer beautiful and the cute picture of myself holding a baby lemur does zilch. OKCupid has gotten me likes within 24 hours of using it, as well as a message riddled with poor grammar and no identifying photo except for a landscape the woman in question isn't in. However, they want to charge me a monthly fee to see my likes.
ANd this isn't even getting started on the illegitimate cancer hook up sites that are just trying to scam desperate cancer patients.
If you'd said hookers and video games I might have been able to do something. Girlfriends are a mystery.

I will definitely ask. I got called in to day to discuss my CT Scan results six days early on Thursday and that seems like really bad news to my brain. Psilocybin would not hurt at this point, only if it reacts negatively with my medication for bipolar 2.
Meant to be a response to bawbag on the psilocybin thing.
Best of luck mate, with the dating and potential tripping of balls!

This isnt an easy place to become vulnerable, but, in my experience, it works out better than you'd expect.
