Another Family Christmas

It's hard to believe Christmas is over, but sure enough, the kids have already torn through their packages, the mess has been cleaned, and the birth of Jesus has been celebrated at church.  I enjoyed helping my sons put together the bicycles that their kids will ride for years to come.  It made me wistful for a moment because it...

Into another new year

Soon it will be a year since I made a journal on this website. I'm happy to have come this far despite my diagnosis, but my worries about what's to come also grow. How much time do I have left? What else should I do to avoid regrets? My illness takes away a lot of things, but it also shows...

Taking a turn in life

I believed that my life's purpose was to keep on moving forward, so my impending death felt like a wall standing between me and my purpose. That's when our local priest talked about the certainty of death in contrast to the abstract concept of doomsday. He asked me what I'd do while waiting for someone or something to break that...

Everybody knows someone

I was diagnosed with breast cancer not too long ago and unfortunately it's at an advanced stage and it has spread. I know I will die from it and I am still trying to come to terms with it. The hardest thing to me has been telling people about it. Most people in my life are supportive and I have a great family and...

The most beautiful moment in life

A music album I frequently listen to asks me about my most beautiful moment in life. It's a topic I usually avoid, but I can't help thinking about it as I repeat the songs in my playlist. I'm close to giving up; not because I can't find any, but because I seem to have more than I thought. My parents tell...

Dementia

When my mind is going haywire
And I don't know what to think,
I call upon the LORD my GOD
To get me back in sync. GOD above he hears my prayer
And always comforts me.
He wraps me in his perfect love
To soothe my frightened plea. "I need you more than ever LORD
As the confusion settles in.
I need...

Trying to motivate oneself into being positive

I was always the type of person that tries to see everything in a positive light. I was always that guy that said "feel your feelings" in order to deal with them. But ever since my diagnosis on January 17, 2018, all of this has taken a real turn. Someone asked me why I am making all these decisions by myself...

Worried and Waiting On a Prognosis

I got out of the hospital around the first of October.  I don't remember much of what happened other than my husband calling 911 and pleading with me to hang in there.  Shortly after that I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure.  Right now, I'm terrified about what that means for me and unfortunately, the doctor can't give me a...

Tempted to bury my head in the sand.

It started with a stumble.  I figured it was just the flip-flops.  Then came leg cramps that woke me at night. I decided to drink more water, eat some bananas, and stretch before going to bed in the following weeks.  Eventually, though, the cramps wouldn't go away no matter what I tried, so I decided to see my doctor.  Turns...

Just finished my first video

I just did my first video and it was just as difficult as I thought it would be. But it was so worth it.

I spent weeks trying to figure out what I wanted to say...what was most important to say, just in case I only ever got to do one. 

Feeling confident with my notes in front...

What I Do with My Time

Time becomes a strange concept; we run out of things to do as we gradually grow weaker, leaving us free most of the days, but we say that we still don't have enough time. When I look into myself during those dark times, I remember how I hide my mistakes in the deepest parts of me. Now everything comes back...

I want to chill. I want you to chill. Can we all just let me do this?


"Why are you watching TV right now? You're dying!" They say this like it's something I don't already know. 

As a dying person, I'm apparently only allowed to do certain things - you know, "bucket list" things. Knowing you're going to die means that you should go do all that stuff you always said you wanted to do...
