wow, i hope your okay, for those of us that belive in God, we will be praying for u man, i hope nothing else happens, if you ever need us were all here for you. thats what this community is here for.
Hey all. I've been thinking for awhile and I thought maybe it's about time to share with the community something I went thru this year. I know a lot of you may not even know who I am seeing as how I don't post much up on these boards anymore compared to when I first signed up. I'm sure the mods know me cuz I do be a pain in the butt alot..... lol
Anyway I for most of my life have been dealing with certain health issues. Back in 2001 I developed cancer (Hodgkin's Lymphoma) and had to deal with that. Now they told me that I needed to do 6 months of chemotheraphy but I only ended up doing 2 because it was very diffucult for me to handle, also having to do it alone because no family was around. I got blessed and the cancer went into remission and has been ever since.
Now over the last 2 years my health has been getting worse slowly. During April of this year, 2007, I had to go into the hospital becuase I had what they call Pneoumo Thorax . What that means is I had a sudden hole burst into my lung which was allowing air to escape into my chest, which in turn was causing my lung to collapse. They had to stick a chest tube in my chest to let the air out so my lung could expand again and that tube had to stay in until my lung healed itself. At the same time all this was happening the doctors told me there was a chance that my lung might not heal and I would have to live my whole life with that tube in my chest. I was blessed by a higher power (god) and my lung did heal after about 2 months of being in the hospital and they was able to take the chest tube out. Now everyday that goes on I always have in my mind that I could go thru this all over again becuase it can happen again to ppl once it happens once.
Anyway I guess the reason I'm writing this is so that maybe other ppl who have gone thru tough medical issues or even know someone that has, can take comfort in knowning that things can pull thru and you look towards brighter days. Now granted I don't know how much longer I will be living, but I hope it's a long time. All I know is that I have to keep hope that things will be ok from here on out.
I have also found that over the years one of the reasons I love playing video games so much is because they help take my mind off of everything I been thru and are currently going thru in my life, at least for that time that I am playing the games.
I pray for all of you out there who have been thru hard medical issues or even know someone who is going thru them. I know it's not easy at all to deal with and also know you just have to have hope. I hope that by sharing this with you all that I may have helped someone feel a little better out there who may be having a hard time dealing with certain issues.
Thanks all for reading and good blessings to you all.
Oh btw I'm only 29..... yeah I know.... Just remember that no matter how much you think your life sucks, there is someone out there who is having a much harder time then you.

yeah i got pnumonia last year during the winter i wasnt the only one sick, one of my best friends got walking pnumonia, and we took the exact same medicine for about 10 days (in different bottles of course) wow it was not fun, spitting up mucus every 10 seconds, and wheezing, and the worst part is i couldnt taste my food . ill tell you one thing it wasnt worth getting sick, i missed a month of school and i would have rather been at school then have that stupid pnumonia, even now i cant be exposed to cold enviroments for more than and hour or i will have this hacking cough and tons of mucus. it woundnt have been this bad if i just went to the doctor but i had it the whole time and plus i was at great world lodge swimming, i had so much mucus build up in my lungs i had to take a month off, and catching up was hell.

And about a year ago I almost died, I had klebsiala pnumonia and it affected my blood stream, I was toxic and my body was in shock.Just remember, "Live a good life, and in the end. It's not the years in the life, but the life in the years".
