July 28

I've set my retirement date. July 28. I am super excited and ready. I actually feel great. The darzalex is doing it's job. Today I finished my every other week treatment and starting next cycle I'll be doing infusion only once a month. That is awesome. On Kilimanjaro, it became very clear to me that I want to not work and I want to enjoy life and do the things I want to do. Right now, even though I feel good, I have no energy during the week. I go to work, come home and go to bed at 7:30 or 8. This, for me, is not quality of life. Leslie and I don't have kids, so this is totally doable. We can collect retirement and I can start collecting Social Security Disability even though I'm only 55. Multiple myeloma is an automatic qualifier for SSDI.

I have been battling an ear infection for almost two weeks. It was rather painful for a couple of days then went to being clogged and impacting my hearing. Really annoying. I had it drained the other day. That hurt like fuck. Dr Phan tells me that the dex I get with my infusion will help with the inflammation and the clearing of the ear. As I write this, it already feels more open. I also feel some of the steroid rage coming on. Must sit quietly.

My forehead is just about healed following the removal of the squamous cell carcinoma, aka non-offensive skin cancer.

In a separate post I am going to share post one of the best Ted Talks I have seen. It's appropriate to where I am currently at and is titled The Magic of Not Giving a Fuck.

  1. Here is my story. greatful

    My wife was diagnosed with a cancer, ( before i learnt of Rick Simpsons oil / RSO ) the hospital said to do chemotherapy and radiotherapy.. she did.. and went through a lot.. but no cure, after a while the doctors said the cancer was spreading and we could look for alternatives.. i searched the internet and found out about the oil.. asked alot of questions.. watched the videos etc.. we made the oil our selves but it couldn't just work out we were doing more harm than good and the cancer was still there spreading, i searched more on the internet i found a testimony on how a lady got the oil via an email, ricksimpsoncannabisoil96@gmail.com immediately copied the email: i wrote to this very email ricksimpsoncannabisoil96@gmail.com and in an hour later i got a reply back asking me some few questions, and enlightened me on how to get the oil in the next 48hours, i placed my order and in the next 48hours the medication oil got to us. immediately my wife started using the oil, it been two months now, since my wife has been using the medication oil and the cancerous problems are gone this very fact was clarified by the doctor.

    i put up this piece of testimony for the sake of those once who need this oil to please don't die in silence their is a cure for your cancer today email: ricksimpsoncannabisoil96@gmail.com and get the oil.
