Again, Long time no writing
« on: January 01, 2019, 06:27:33 pm »
Dear my friends,

   Happy New Year from Asia.
Again, long time no communication.  I am sorry.

   My life has been just normal and even more active than before I got ill.  This is my fifth anniversary - I got seriously ill in January 2014 and here I am working seven days a week, coming and going.
   
    Thank you, again, for your support.

Happy New Year, Daniel!

Glad to hear you're keeping busy - but don't be too busy! ;)

My husband and I have been busy lately too. We just bought a house! and got moved in and unpacked just barely in time for Christmas.

have a good 2019.

    ojo.    Hola amigo... How nice to hear from you again, as Long as you are doing okay, don't worry for no writing.I always encourage people to go back to their normal lives before DX... Who would have thought that it's already five years since your first post. I still remember it... Lots of people don't like to hear when we say "you are going to be ok", and here you are, after 5 years, doing okay even better than okay, you are doing accident... Congratulations my friend...hugs.         ojo

Mikie and TONNY 2, and everyone,

   Thank you. 
I can hardly believe I was close to death five years ago this month.  Now I am active, working, coming and going, even exercising on a regular basis.  It looks as if I had turned into a different version of me.

Hey Daniel,

You were one of many on here who gave me comfort and made me feel better about my diagnosis. I remember being in the hospital like it was yesterday. Hard to believe that was 2 years ago this April.
Glad you're doing well. Live on and prosper my friend!
