No Looking Back

I have thought for some time why I am thankful for this blog, and here is what I've come up with:
a. There are tons of people on here that I've never even met that (-call me crazy, but it's true-) seem like family sometimes. I have so much support here that I can't imagine my cancer journey, or my recovery, or living with the statistics of this disease sometimes looming over me, without it.
b. It is an always-available outlet for me.
c. It is a record of everything that's happened.
d. It is always morphing and changing into what I am morphing and changing into.

That being said, here is today's ultra corny but uber true affirmation. Yes, that right, I said affirmation. Here we go:

You are wondering why you are not doing the things you need to do and the reason is: (wait for it...) you are tired. You need a break. I know that you think that there is no time for a break, but if you want to take any action at all, then give your body the time and the rest it needs. When it is ready to bounce back, it will. You are exactly where you are supposed to be and exactly who you are supposed to be at this moment. Love yourself because you deserve to be loved.


P.s.- I can't believe I just cheesed out like that. But it felt good!

"Keep an eye on it!"

That is what you hear from your dermatologist after your periodical check-up. It is almost impossible to be sure if your mole is changing in color, shape, size.
Probably it is already too late once you notice a significant change.
Finally, I heard about a new website who can help us.
You can upload a photo to analyze your mole, skin condition and track changes between doctor visits.
If they can do a great job, they should get a Nobel prize.
I am looking forward to your feedback.
Thanks, Jim
