Short Update

Just finished my first chemotheraphy session
if everything is alright I can go to home tomorrow
and stay there for 2 weeks.

the chemoptheraphy was quite heavy and I puked a lot.
one "bag" of chemo had to get in my body in 5 minutes
and then I got half a liter of water so I don't get any burning wounds?

had some problems with eating,but that is going better now
thanks to my mother who sleeps in the same room(nice people at the hospital).
who motivates me to eat and try some food.
some food doesn't taste that good anymore.

but it gets better each day.


greetings Dirk

one tip for you,
a friend of mine had a chemo 2 years ago. he is just half a man now, if you understand, but he is very fine now. he managed all very good, the search of the right hospital, the reha, he was eating very much and drinking a lot of water - both seemed to be very good against the poison of the chemo. take care of you and good luck, altough i don't know you, but it reminds me of my friend - and i nearly have tears in my eyes.

Hello Dirk,

If I want to mail you something from the USA, how should I write the address? What country do you live in? Should I use the last hospital address or your home address?

It's first itme in thsi blog. I can say only "it can't rain forever" (i like this, it make me feel better). Fight for you, and every morning make a smile to yourself and say "I'll win". Close your eyes, try to imagine your cancer, and imagine lot of bullet that destroy it, that kill it. I think this can help you, because your mind can do lot for you. Stay strong and never surrender.

Stay Strong Dirk!
Though it may get difficult for you, try & stay positive in your mind. The visualisation technique charass suggested can be good....imagine the tumor in your minds eye & shrink it down, eliminate it with your mind & your body will follow its instruction.
A few years ago an associate of my fathers was thrown out of the USA for writing a book on cancer treatment. The FDA (federal drug admin) wanted him shut down & silenced for his unorthodox writings, which he eventually managed to self-publish in a book. He stated that apple seeds & apricot kernels (crushed up & eaten in quantities) contain a chemical that effectively attacks cancers in the body. It is a similar chemical to the poison arsenic but it only targets cancerous cells and not healthy ones. He had done tests & trials which showed +ve results but the FDA would not grant him an official research licence for what maybe a 'free' cure for this disease.
Try it out.
Best wishes to you & a fast recovery.

Lots of good karma comming your way!

The chemo is hard on the kidneys, so don't forget to move around a lot and be physcially active. A high oxygene intake binds up the hydrogen in the body, so your body not produces too much acid.

The food issue is a drag, lots of fresh garlic is always a winner...

I don't know your taste in music, but check out my music at http://twistedsessions.com/nakiel

Take care and watch out for gnomes!

Hi. I wish you the best. I hope the chemo does its job. Your taste in music is impeccable. Your dedication to exploration in strange obscurity is laudable. Get well and keep up the good work.
