I've been "online" for roughly ten years. I met some very dear ladies when I first logged onto AOL in a DOOL chat room. Some I have even had the pleasure of meeting in person. We've shared so much through the years, ups and downs, new babies and even sadness. We "talk " about anything and everything. Today I'd like to share one of our recent "conversations"
Pardon the caps, it was easier to cut and paste.
LINDA DO NOT PASS ON YOUR MAMMO, MY GF IS NOW DYING OF CANCER AS SHE LET HER MAMMO GO FOR 2 YEARS GOT BREAST CANCER , THEN A MASTECTOMY THEN
REMISSION, THEN CANCER ALL THROUGH HER BODY, NOW LESS THEN 2 MOS TO LIVE SHE IS 59 AND IT MAKES ME SICK TO GO SEE HER . SHE IS WITH HOSPICE NOW AND SHE IS OR I SHOULD SAY WAS GORGEOUS, WONDERFUL FAMILY, EVERYTHING, JUST STUBBORN, I BEGGED DEBBIE GO GET YOUR MAMMO, I WILL I WILL AND SHE DIDN'T . I WANT TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO, BUT THAT WOULD BE SO CRUEL. SOMETIMES SHE IS LUCID AND MOST OF THE TIME SHE IS SLEEPING AS SHE IS IN SO MUCH PAIN. I AM SO MAD AT HER. I AM MISSING HER SO MUCH.
I was due this summer so I am still good. I see my regular Dr in Nov. and I will have her draw up the paperwork and go then. I wont skip it. I know the consequences. I'm sorry about your friend. It is hard to watch a friend suffer like that
Its just wrong.
HOW IRONIC, I SENT THIS LAST NITE AND DEBBIE DIED THIS AM.
Readers I beg of you, do not become another Debbie. Go for that mammo, feel yourself up in the shower. An ounce of prevention truly is worth a pound of cure and you are worth your weight in gold!
