New Video. New Tattoo. New Chemo.
I posted a new video for The Funny Thing About Cancer YouTube series, which just hit 100,000 views! When I first posted a video I thought I would get maybe 100 or so views on each, the response has been amazing. You can check out the new video by clicking here.
I got a new tattoo today, which I’m super excited about. Kevin Lytle at Eternal Tattoo in Livonia, Michigan did it. I love it, he’s awesome.
Here is another excerpt from the book The Funny Thing About Cancer:
I remember the day I gave up trying to be someone other than exactly who I was. It was sometime during my third cycle of chemotherapy. The first few cycles had been a breeze comparatively. This cycle was the cycle from hell. This particular day I was competing in my own version of the fat man Olympics. Loads of vomiting brought that on. I was doing the chemo-cross-country laps from couch to toilet to bed and repeat. This kept up for what seemed like hours. Most days my mom’s basement is overrun with my step-dad Ken, my sisters and their friends and our family cat Sarah. Today it felt as isolated as Chernobyl and not a bit warmer either.
Laying in bed, panting from the exhaustion of the chemo cross-country, I struggled to find a reason to not just call it quits and intentionally overdose on my chemotherapy drugs. I decided I needed some outside stimulation so I grabbed my phone and opened Facebook. The first status update I saw read:
‘My internet has been down for 3 hours. Ugh! What next? FML!’
(If you aren’t familiar with the new age abrevation of ‘FML’, it means ‘Fuck My Life.)
My HILARIOUS AND EVIL reaction to that post and what went through my head is only available to those who buy a copy of the book The Funny Thing About Cancer.
