Just finished my first video

I just did my first video and it was just as difficult as I thought it would be. But it was so worth it.

I spent weeks trying to figure out what I wanted to say...what was most important to say, just in case I only ever got to do one. 

Feeling confident with my notes in front...

What I Do with My Time

Time becomes a strange concept; we run out of things to do as we gradually grow weaker, leaving us free most of the days, but we say that we still don't have enough time. When I look into myself during those dark times, I remember how I hide my mistakes in the deepest parts of me. Now everything comes back...

I want to chill. I want you to chill. Can we all just let me do this?


"Why are you watching TV right now? You're dying!" They say this like it's something I don't already know. 

As a dying person, I'm apparently only allowed to do certain things - you know, "bucket list" things. Knowing you're going to die means that you should go do all that stuff you always said you wanted to do...

Appreciating the digital legacy

The word legacy often relates to a big house, a lot of money, a proud history, or a list of happy moments. None of them lasts forever, though. Despite having a helpful Hospice service, there is no guarantee that Mom can join Dad's next birthday party or come to my wedding reception. That's why we truly appreciate the service here...

From Girls to Grown-Ups

I decided to move into assisted living shortly after my diagnoses.  It was the best choice for me because I have help when I need it, but I'm still able to go places and live independently as much as possible.  My two wonderful daughters helped me move in and get settled.  They visit me on Sundays after church and I...

Dazed and Confused

I don't know who I am anymore.  I used to be this young dude who was a high achiever.  I was known for being the guy who could solve any computer problem. The one who could look at the code, find the loophole, and close it quickly.  Now, I struggle to recite my social security number correctly to the nurses...

A different kind of understanding.

How many times a week did you complain about your beloved ones not truly understanding what you were going through? I lost count of it. We told them so many times, and they failed to get it just as much. Talking to the people in this forum change me for the better. They understand my fears of living and dying. They...

I told her.

I told her.  I finally told my wife, Carol, that the cancer is back and there is nothing more they can do for me. I thought about asking the preacher or the hospice nurse to deliver the bad news, but in the end, I felt I owed it to Carol to tell her alone and in private.  Well, I don't...

Dignity, Privacy, and Social Media

*I gave some advice to Mishanda Lorenzo after she reached out to me.  To put the advice in context, Mishanda's daughter had just been diagnosed with Juvenile Huntington's Disease. She encouraged me to share the portion about social media here since it might benefit others.  I'm posting this from a mobile phone, so please forgive any errors.   Discuss with your daughter how she wants...

I love you. Im dying. Im sorry.

I'm a coward.  I found out three days ago that my cancer is back, it has spread into the surrounding organs, and there's nothing more that they can do.  The doctor has placed me on hospice for palliative care.   With my insurance I'll be able to stay at home, so a hospice nurse is coming to set everything up. The...

Keep up the good work.

As my condition deteriorates, I look back on what I did since I started here. This site showed me that people who fight the toughest battles could still enjoy their lives. They inspired me to do the same for myself. When I thought I had reached the limit, I was proven wrong. Ultimately, I am glad that I have tried...
