    Survivors With An Attitude

    The Devil whispered in my ear, "your not strong enough to withstand the storm". Today i whispered in the Devils ear, "I am the storm"

    Well, for a cancer survivor that can be a good attitude to have, at least in some aspects. I see that this isn't something that was original, but the attitude still counts. Sometime my chemo week weighs me down a bit, and if I have a project where I can work myself into exhaustion it goes off and hides in the corner. If you look in the inspirational forum you'll see a chemo T-shirt I made up, and there's some other stuff too. If you find a place where you can do volunteer work and wind up making the people you see feel better than they did before you showed up, you're damn close to immortal.
