Post My Illness

Hey everyone,
I will be taking a long break from the forums. I have been sick for a while and did not know why. I finally went to the ER due to an unbelievable amount of pain. They did a bunch of testing and it turns out that my liver is ate up with tumors. While in the hospital the cancer spread to one of my lungs. I start chemotherapy next week but recovery does not look good. I will keep everyone informed as new information becomes available. Take care everyone and have a Happy New Year.

Oh, wow! That is such terrible news. Well, I hope the best for you, and I am not sure if you have left the forum now or you will be checking back a few times in the next few days, but here is a good video to watch and think about while going through chemotherapy.

I hope the round of chemo goes well. Several members of my family have had terminal cancer and some are still around because of it. So there is hope.

And hey, maybe you can use this opportunity to become a drug lord. Be the Walter White 2.0 :lol:

Post Re: My Illness

Hello everyone,
I've lost the war with cancer. I only have a few months left to live. I just got home from the hospital a couple of hours ago. The Cancer has spread to just about everywhere. I can longer receive Chemotherapy, as my body has rejected one of the agents. I've been told to join Hospice for pain management only. So, I am completely out of medical options now. My family members are falling apart, which makes this harder for me. If there was a Physician Assistant Suicide option here, I would take it, but that is out of the question.

Anyway,
I just wanted to thank all of you for your support and friendship. I have had a lot fun talking with you all on a lot of great many subjects. I have to deal with family and legal crap for the next couple of days, but will be returning to this site when I get some free time and my body and mind are up to that.
Take care, everyone. I'll return soon to hopefully have some good conversations. :)

Very sorry to hear this, Brian.

I trust that whatever time you have left will be as enjoyable as possible, whether in real life or online. If we can help, you need only ask.

Damn it, that sucks. At least once a week I would think about you and hope you would post that everything was okay.

Post Re: My Illness

My sister's friend sent me this a couple of days ago on FB, and I am not sure how to respond?

I pray for your peace and comfort Brian Tewmey! I met you a couple time in my high school years as being friends with Courtney Tewmey. I don't know what your beliefs are. But I want you to know that God is there waiting on you! Even if you have went your whole life not having a personal relationship with God it's not too late! It's not too late to ask for Redemption and experience the peace and joy He can bring in your last days here! It's not easy to let go of this life, I'm sure and not easy to say goodbye to those who love you so much but there is a Heaven that is more than this world will ever be and I hope to see you there one day friend!


I'm getting a lot of these types of posts lately. Should I ignore them, or should I address them head on? Any thoughts?

Thank you very much for your thoughts and concerns. There for a while I thought the chemo was working, or at least slowing down the spread of the disease. I guess it is just my time to go. I'm not going to lie, it's been hard excepting the fact that I will be gone soon, and it is pretty frightening. The hardest part is knowing that I will have to leave the people I love behind.

Well, this sucks. Best I can do now is hope that you have a comfy death.

Depends totally on who say them. If it's your close ones saying they'll pray for you I'd let it pass. After all they know that they are helpless and praying is a hail Mary to help you (in their minds) and a way to deal with their grief. If it comes from a person you don't care about or don't really know (ie, they don't matter) you might just shrug your shoulders or ask why God didn't heal you when that was prayed for.

On the other hand this "you still have time to repent" thing is a bit more complicated. Again you might want to give a pass for your loved ones as it's a way of dealing with your situation. If you get spot in Heaven they have a chance of seeing you again after they join you in death, and that makes this whole this less scare for them. Then again you can say that lack of a belief is nothing to repent for and that God, if he is waiting, shouldn't care if you believe in Him (after all, He can't be that insecure, can He?) or not but look at your life and judge you by that (there are christian sects that place more importance on deeds than faith). Or you can send them a link to the following video if they are being a dick about it.



I suppose it's all about if you care about them and how they feel, or not. Not very helpful I know, but these things are complicated.
