TOMOS - you have been through the wringer mate.
I can appreciate your future worries too but you are doing the right things and you are winning step by step, even if it feels like there is always something else around the corner.
Once your boy is sorted it’ll be a different kind of stress but this phase will be over.

Anyone heard from Jamie (Geordie Hammer) - it’s been a while...
Hope you are doing okay mate.

I'm doing ok at the moment as it happens dude - been over 4 weeks since my last lot of chemo, and gradually feeling more human and certainly being more active.

All kicks off again on 19th June when I have a top up dose of chemo by IV, then 4 weeks of chemo by pill, alongside 4 weeks of radiotherapy.

Thankfully, that's then it, and I can start to recover and get back to work at long bloody last.

Great to see you're making positive steps too.

Everything just feels completely ****.

I don't even think I'm depressed, I'm just so uninspired by life.

Feel bad cos some of you are actually dealing with real things and I'm just a bit bored but seriously, how can anyone be content with this world?

Your posts do interest me, fj!
I think boredom that can't be relieved by anything (or certainly, anything for long) is quite significant in some way.
At the very minimum, it is an expression of unhappiness.

A concentration in the things in life that make you discontent as opposed to the reverse is probably a mood thing, but coming to an existentialist view of the meaning of life would seem,to me at least, to be thoroughly rational.
It doesn't necessarily mean a descent into nihilism , the summer sun is warm, and in my experience, just one of the things that technology can't really replicate.Life can be beautiful even though it's fundamentally absurd.

That came across wrong - you've got to fight your cancer as you want to live - you have to accept the Chemo and the Radiotherapy treatment - it's just the manner you've gone about things , your positive attitude will help you in the long run .

You know I did mate, but you'd be hard pushed to describe it as positive and healthy living.

Why not?

Most spend their times eating processed food and watching TV.
