Five and Going on Six

Years that is.

Am still swimming. And dealing with a couple of other issues, too, like MS and IBS.

We have to be proactive

So I have a hard time concentrating on any one thing for too long. The main point to my story, I guess, is that we have to be proactive. Be in the driver's seat as much as possible.

Advocating for myself

I had to ask my primary care doc for a chest Xray which ultimately showed the cancerous mass in my right lung. How many more years would have gone by? Where would I be right now? So going on six and as many more as I can squeeze out!! Thanks go to my Higher Power and many helpers.
