i actually came up with it all by myself
umm i kept comparing it to london the whole time tbh (I mean they're the only two anglo cities of their size i think?). food/drink was much cheaper - i mean you could do it expensively, but there were a lot of options to eat for under $10 that i dont see anywhere in london..
I thought life in general was cheaper there tbh, clothes shopping/cabs/whatever (apart from rent ofc, but i stayed with family for free )
didn't like the subway system there though
I thought it'd be all skyscrapers and flash, but that's actually only predominantly in one or two (not very nice imo) areas
also, americans! i havent spoken to many americans IRL. so many americans! I found people in new york were a lot more open than I'm used to in european cities, so if they didn't like you they were a lot more rude but if they did like you they were a lot more friendly.. on balance I like this
I wonder if anyone will even see this cuz this subforum looks ded.
I have cancer. Not a good prognosis.
Just wanted to say it's been fun being here for a time with you all.
Cherish all you can when you can. Life is short.
Are you for real?
I am going to try alternative stuff but the type of ca it is has a 6% 5 yr survival rate if you can have surgery (I can't). Just chemo is 2% 5 yr survival and the doc admitted I'd be sick most of the time and might lose time and die early cuz of the effects of chemo....in the first year 74% die.
I'm opting to feel good till I can't anymore. If some vegan diet saves me, awesome. I'm trying to figure what Gerson and Cousens and MacDougal? or McDonald (can't remember names) have in common of what foods to eat and only eat those.
Are you all so suspicious I need to figure how to take a pic of my path report without my name (so then how do you know it's really mine?) and post it to prove I wish you all well and my ticket has been punched?
SD79, I'm so sorry to hear what you're up against and wish you peace in whatever decisions you make (and a miraculous recovery on top of it). I'm not sure what to say in these instances, an old coworker of mine is currently facing a similar prognosis and I lacked words hearing the news about her too. I support trying whatever you can and feeling as good as you can while you can...
Also don't think the lack of replies in here is due to suspicion -- it's just that nobody posts in here. I would've responded sooner had I checked the thread. I know I speak for others in wishing you the best
That's horrible I don't know what to say.
What kind of cancer is it?
Seriously. Fuck Cancer.
Sounds like the words you used are good ones. So you do know what to say, it just never feels like enough.
I know posting went down in here. I guess it was and FS made me wonder if I have to prove it. sigh. fucking internet.
Thank you for your good wishes and the wish for miracles. I'm willing to have one happen!! Just not going to count on it.
and yes, fuck cancer.
One thing I'm doing to fuck cancer after I'm gone--I'm donating my body to a med school. They can teach students and do experiments with my cells and maybe find cures for this shit.
No proof necessary. I guess I was just hoping you were joking. This really sucks. You should use this as an excuse to do things you want to do but wouldn't normally do.
It just sounded so out of the blue and harsh I didn't know what to think
I wish you all best and hopefully you can find things in your life that take your mind off the disease.
When a friend got breast ca 10 yrs ago I did that
I wondered at times if I was nuts then but now I'm sure it was the right thing to do.
Friends has sent me some of these and I thought I'd share with all of you.

It's ok. I was never upset about it. Just would be sad if proof is needed after this many years chatting with ya'all.
There is no easy way for me to tell people and no perfect replies when I do. It's a total freak out every single time.
One thing two people told me is to use this time.....cancer means time to say good by that a heart attack that kills in an instant doesn't allow. It's extra tears but some already are telling me that reminiscing with me is good for them.
There are moments I forget I have it. Those are some good moments.
Keep loving to the end. It's the most real thing I've found so far.
In happier news
Hello old friends!
I am here!
Visiting the bible belt soon. Will let y'all know if it exists.
Looking to order some prescription drugs from a source outside the US. Anyone have experience with this? I find plenty of sites that seem totally legit by some sources, but other sources claim they are sketchy. I don't know what to believe. All I know is the US pharmacies are overpriced for what I need and would break my bank. Help?
was just creeping freakyshiat. Damn jojobee has gotten tiny!! She looks like she weighs a 100 pounds
Babylon can you message me? Thanks
