I remember you David, I was dx in 2004 but didn't start using the forums until about 2005/6.
I am 8yrs down the line, I have had a few scares, but all were ok in the end.
I'm interested to see how others from that far ago are feeling now both physically/emotionally/mentally.
I am still taking Anti-depressents, Diazepam and Sleeping tablets, find myself quite anxious and emotional at times, physically I get tired quicker than I used to pre dx, and have had to reduce to working 3 days a week....which even that at times can feel too much.
I remember other users from that time, some sadly no-longer with us but others who I have stayed in contact with via email/facebook etc.,
I'm also from the class of 2006, thankfully still here, keeping busy and feeling fine. Glad to hear you are nearly 10 years down the line David. I find everything seems far away now and sometimes can't believe what I went through to get to where I am now. It says something about the strength we all have a human beings I think.
Just read your post & whilst I admit to not remembering you I was a user back in 2006 as I went through treatment for my first diagnosis. Sadly I am back again after a second diagnosis last December ( fortunately just for a recurrence- no spread) but have just finished surgery/chemo/rads. It's hard to start over again after reaching my 5 years point & thinking the worst was over! Hope that you're ok after all this time & are just a casual user.
Hi - my name is David, I was a regular on this forum many years ago - Diagnosed in 2003 - so 2004 to 2006 regular user - now and again after that. I was in the fashion show of 2006 with another guy Brian.
I am just wondering - if there are still users - who were going through this in that period - really want to just HELLO to all.
I got through this thing - I wish all you going through it now - all the best - remember, there is light at the end of the tunnel - not just another nurse with a torch looking for a vien .
It would be nice for a reply - from anyone who remembers me.
