Cancer - December 28th 2011, 11:25 PM

So I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer 4 years ok and was told I will only live for 30 days and I am still alive. I just had chemo today a 5 hour session and I am feeling really weak and tired. I will be in the hospital for a while possible a month. I am scared that I might die but I am prepared if I am going to die I just feel like I have a lot more to live for.

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

To me it sounds like you're a fighter. Keep thinking positively and don't let it get you down. Try and think that you need to live life to the full. You need to ensure that you get what you want and live each day to the max.


Try and sleep as much as possible- I know it's tedious and you're fed-up of feeling tired. But chemo really does suck. It's a very draining thing. What my friend does is when she's completed one cycle she sleeps as much as possible for the first couple of days and then goes out and enjoys herself. She plans that day from the first day of the next cycle and it's something for her to focus on. Maybe you could try this?
I am so sorry you have been given this diagnosis- i'm sure you're sick of hearing that one too. But think of it this way- you've already made it past the 30 days that the medical professionals gave you. Keep smiling.

You are so incredibly strong for making it past the 30 days you were given and making it 4 extra years. You keep a positive attitude and keep on going strong no matter what. Okay? I'm always here if you need someone to talk to. xxxx

Can I just say, you truly are an inspiration to me, as your attitude is so positive and you are so brave in hard circumstances. I wish you the best of luck in hospital - if you ever want a chat whenever feel free to PM me. Stay strong <3333 Good luck.

Matthew, you are such an inspiration to me. The doctors gave you 30 days and you have lived for 4 more years! Sounds to me like you're a fighter. So, don't let the bad news get you down. Keep fighting and try to hold onto a positive attitude. Shoot me a message if you'd like to talk, okay?


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Just keep telling yourself you will make it. I know it's hard. You are an inspiration to so many.
