Following a trend and looking back to that fateful year, today of 08. Having cancer taught me so much about myself but also taught me so little. Today those years ago I was about to go to Seattle and go into the absolute hardest treatment of my life and the roughest. I developed a mindset to be able to cope with it was it healthy? Looking back at it no it wasn’t I carry it with me even today. Life has a way of reminding us that we aren’t as perfect as we thought we were, or knew as much as we thought. I’m just a babbler of bullshit that people think is profound. I have a lot to learn about myself and I have a lot of things to grow with. I’m lucky though, really damn lucky. I have Crystal Mcgee, Donnett Cotton Emch, Jeremy Simpson, and a whole group of friends who help keep me straight and on the right course. My sagely advice ladies and gents? Nothing absolutely nothing I don’t have the answers for myself or anyone else.
I don’t really care what anyone else thinks or says. I am the luckiest man alive, not just because I’ve lived through this mess called my life. I’m the luckiest because this woman has stayed with me through it all. Cancer you aren’t shit when compared.

four years ago this moment and for thenext two weeks was the worst in my life. I was in the fight for my life. I was flatlined just now 4 years ago. Dead and brought back to fight more.
Today now I sit alive knowing I have nothing but life ahead of me.
