In 2016 I was diagnosed with cirrhosis and liver cancer. I’ve lived with hep c and several other intense diseases for years. After watching my tumor grow via MRI for over a year, I decided that having the doctors cut into me and fill me with toxic poisons and spend my life going through procedure after procedure, I opted to detach myself from the medical industry and go it on my own.
I am in the care of hospice now and am addicted to quite a variety of interesting drugs. Some days are tolerable and even fun, especially when I can pick my 5....
Most days I am super dizzy and can barely walk around the house or swallow and process food.
Some days I seem to be energized maybe by the music and the excitement of knowing that my time on this planet is very short now and no longer be in this body...
I’m working on a book of memoirs titled The Cosmic Explosion as well as a couple of CDs...
The book also deals with human identity factors, life& death, and my theory of the origin of this solar system...
I Am so graced to be surrounded by my loving family and friends and am essentially content with the way things are, aside from the daily pain and discomfort — I’m glad to be part of Banjo Hangout!2 comments
