Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What I am doing with my life is very simple -- moving forward one
step at a time and trying not to step on the alligators. Life is
ever changing and none of the plans I have made over the last 30
years have come out as expected. So I am now looking at life for
today, this week, this month, and the next 1-2 years. I am trying
to do the things that were put off until there was enough time or
money. I now know that there is always enough time and money for
the important things and if you wait they may never happen.
Most importantly I am seeking a new friends and hopefully a
lover/life companion. As part of doing that I am trying out various
meetups and social groups.
I am currently exercising twice a week through the Well-Fit program
offered by Auburn Racquet Club, which conveniently is just a few
blocks from my home. Designed for those with and recovering from
cancer it is a great program and my strength, stamina, and range of
motion are all improving (I was getting a little slow on the
My life is a bit complicated by my cancer. I wear a pressure
garment from toe to chest but you cannot tell that I am physically
limited unless you ask me to jump over a fence. I am in continuous
cycles of chemotherapy which is surprisingly holding the cancer
stable (with a bit of downward slipping). But I constantly confound
the nurses - I look so healthy and vibrant that they make comments
about how nice it is to be past chemo when I come in for my blood
draws. Through good diet and taking just the right supplements my
immune levels are now good enough I can freely go to large events
and participate in events in a crowded room.
I am not looking for sympathy or a nurse! I am especially
interested in someone who has been holding back from a relationship
because of a perceived flaw. I still consider myself active,
comfortable in my finances, and a fantastic partner in every way
that counts. I am looking for someone who sees themselves in the
same way, having accepted their flaws and/or limitations. Lets all
be honest at 63 years into a wonderful life not everything is going
to be working perfectly, cancer or not.
