You mentioned fun, didn't you? You know its funny. If you asked me a month ago, what I would do if someone told me I had some type of brain tumor, I would probably tell you I would all apart. When the doctor told me on Thursday, it was hard to digest and then I almost passed out. Now that I am over it, and have done an extensive amount of research on line and off, I am looking at it, not as fun, but as a challenge and unfortunately, one more "small" hurdle in life. It makes you realize how strong we as human beings are, and what we can endure. I am reading the posts of many others with more complications, and I have seen very close friends suffer from horrible diseases. I feel that I am fortunate, in life, in health, in sickness, and now here, having people like you and others take an interest in someone they do not know. Conditions such as this do not have to be defeating to us. They can be upsetting at times, troubling, disabling, but they can also become empowering, as long as we are proactive and take control of our lives. Sorry for the soapbox.
