The main focus of this thread is for surviors of and those currently going through various types of cancers to have a place to talk if they wish about what they have gone through and possible things they did to keep hope and/or at least remain postive, what animes should and should not be watched while under the effects of radation or chemotherpy treatments.
In truth I don't know what direction if any this thread will take so I'm just come out with it.
I am a cancer survior. I have been cancer free since April/May 2006. I was diagonised on Dec. 2, 2005 with stage 3 Testicular Cancer. (I won't bore you with all the details). I had my good days and my bad days. There were days, I wasn't sure if I'd see the next, but I made sure to try enjoy every moment I had. Cried, when I felt like it. Laughed, when I felt like it. Sometimes at same time. :D.
I found out that one should not watch shows like Evangelion, Alien Nine, or Serial Experiment Lain while undergoing Chemotherpy. In the long run, I view that this was only one part of me and does not define who I am. Sure, I lost one to the tumor , but that does not make me any less of a man.
I never smoked and I hardly if ever drink. I figure it was just my chance at getting something like anyone else. I glad that I made it through it and would never wish it on anyone else.
And yes, my forum name is a slight joke/knod to being a Testicular Cancer survior.
