LMSC I’m very sorry to hear your illness. We will pray for your recovery and may He grace you, cure you and bless you with a long-lease of healthy and happy life.
Get well soon.
Thanks for the thought. But to be clear, getting well is an extremely long shot. Until the last few years, it was no shot at all. Now, there are a lot of advances in labs and about the only chance of recovery is getting on to every experimental treatment I can find, and hoping one works.
Expert opinion is that a cure is coming ….. eventually. There are significant developments happening, largely in the form of understanding of genetics, and very carefully tailored treatmnt targeting the genetics of specific cancers. This might end up being a treatment specifically designed, tailored, for me. It;s a long shot because it’s doubtful I have the time that’ll take to reach general use. Hence, getting on to trials.
That, however, involves a trade-off. First, a lot of disruption, and perhaps travel, even if I do get onto a trial or trials. That kind of disruption can destroy the quality of whatever time I do have, in the hope of a cure. Secondly, the treatment itself, by definition, experimental and that carries some risk, especially to quality of life.
So …. do I risk ruining any quality of life to go for a very long shot of a cure? And there was me thinking which coffee roaster to go for was a tricky decision. 😀
One more thing. I’m at ease with all this. It’s all in mindset, but whatever will be, will be and meantime, live each day to the full.
Sorry for the downer. That’s partly why I hesitated to go into this at all. But some of my posts must have looked a bit weird without the context.
