what are little brothers for, seems like just yesterday he wanted to be a little pilot

Anyone here listen to Wall of Sleep? Great Stoner/Doom band.
Am I the only one who thinks that those words from slaves of fear are holy words and should be thought at school and in every religious institution?
Your minds are restrained
Obedience is the chain
They've locked you up and thrown away the key
Your souls are for sale,
And you're the ones who pay
But still, you'll never be set free
They're feeding you lies
With calculating smiles
Enslavement of the human mind
As long as you kneel to their authority
Religion is what makes you blind
Yep you're sorta right. But still, if you're atheist you find out soon enough
i've been atheist since i was 17 now im 23, so i'm kinda lucky i found out soon enough
first round of chemotherapy went well. i've already beaten this cancer as far as i'm concerned
Hang in there man!
Beat that bastard, the only time I support fighting
may u heal quick
hang in there and continue staying positive
what's the story if you don't mind me asking?
i thought i had injured my shoulder at the gym because i was training 6 days a week.
within a couple of weeks two big lumps started rapidly growing just above my left collar bone and near my neck. went to the doctor who sent me to get an ultrasound. had the ultrasound the following day and the doctor called me that afternoon whilst i was at work and told me to come in for an emergency appointment. i knew something was up.
said the ultrasound showed that the lumps indicated a strong possibility of being lymphoma which is a type of cancer. she made an appointment for me to see an oncologist the following day.
cut a long story short, had a few tests (ct scans, PET scans, blood tests), had the lumps removed (surgery, got a cool scar on my neck!) and i was diagonsed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma (cancer). it is also in my chest but they aren't going to operate to remove that as it is a little risky.
the good thing is that it is very curable and treatable with a 90% success rate it's a bit annoying being stuck at home and not working but i am coping by listening to a lot of metal and reading. still, i tend to go a bit silly when i'm not using my brain!
i have another 7 treatments of chemotherapy then 6 weeks of radiotherapy, 5 days a week. i am in very good spirits and i've already beaten it in my mind
You'll make it and celebrate with the next AA tour in Aussie land!
I don't know you but I'm sure you'll beat it!! At least sounds like you're on the way there
I wish you all the best Gazza. Hang in there!!!
Kick ass Gazza, positive attitude is a great weapon! \m/
sorry to hear that
I'm sure all will be alright, take care and make good use of that time off
thanks guys! it picked the wrong warrior to mess with
i agree Gnoff. having AA come back down here would be the best way to celebrate beating it!
i'll keep you all posted. my mates find it hard to comprehend how strong and positive i've been about the whole thing. i spent a couple of years in darkness and managed to slay my way out of that, so this is just another hurdle i have to overcome.
i love a challenge
Good to hear you staying positive, get over that bitch and back to kicking lawyer ass
On something completely different:
I might go to Metaltown festival starting tomorrow in Gothenburg, I thought I'd skip it, but now it seems my brain has changed its mind.
We'll see what happens.
Keep your spirits up, man- I have a friend who went through this type of Lymphoma so I got the insider's story already. She told me her specialists said it is a type of cancer that is most common in young people, but very rarely life threatening unless it's combined with something else, or far too advanced- the higher up in the body, the more treatable, apparently (hers was at the base of the neck, by the collarbone).
She was diagnosed in June and by December she was already in remission. She said what she found most frustrating was the sheer lack of support from some agencies. Apparently so many people falsely claim to have cancer that the system is fed up with requests for financial support. Why someone would pretend that, I don't know, but it happens.
So, keep positive and strong- I'm sure you'll be back in that gym before you know. My friend is doing the inca trail next year for charity.
