About Me: Male, 55, Milwaukee, WI, member since Mar 2011
I was 'overly radiated' 23 years ago & have a multitude of problems because of it. They don't tell you that radiation keeps scarring whatever area was radiated-until you die. If you live long enough like I have, many body parts can be effected. I went from seeing a neur
[More]ologist once a year (pre-radiation) to seeing 8 twice a year.
The flip side of all of the above is I have a loving husband & son, a zany sense of humor, I do the best that I can with all that's wrong with me. I appear to be OK, but I can assure things are different inside.
I've learned a lot and have met a grade deal of people with different illnesses. It doesn't pay to be bitter about anything & the people that are really dealing with their problems aren't bitter-that includes me. Life is what it is and one must go on from there. Easy? Not at all, but doable. Who wants to listen to someone whine about their aches & pains? I stay in bed when in it's intolerable & take naps when needed. A sense of humor really helps, as does prayer. I couldn't have made it this far without gathering the strength I need from God. I've tried everything else and believe me, He is the answer. If you don't believe me, just ask.
