live like you were dying
« on: October 14, 2013, 10:56:41 PM »
There is a point where after you get over the shock and the shitty side effects where you need to just grab the ole jock strap and adjust.  I at this point plan on thanking what ever power you believe in and holding on for the wild ride.  Many before us were not afforded the treatment and lives that we have. So I plan on looking at the old country song and indeed live like I am dying....

Cause you are Blanche. you are dying, everyone is, everyone will, no one is promised tomorrow. 
Pray God you can cope
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
