13 Nov 17 - 0924 ET - CANCER

**YESTERDAY. Published my main main blog on coffee and 2 collections of 

Tweets and I have something on my mind. 

I later drove to Orrville to Rite Aid to pick up a few prescription medications and 

a gallon of skim milk. 

**TODAY. I need to start my eye drops in my right eye for my right eye surgery 

on Wednesday. 

As for the rest of the day, I'll continue to type and to do, in part, what is 

explained below.

I HAVE SOMETHING ON MY MIND

**I have an appointment to see a dermatologist in Wooster. I didn't know it, 

the husband-wife team also do eye surgery. 

I will expect the doctor to find about 5 places that have (BCC) Basal Cell 

Carcinoma, a skin cancer due to my long time exposure to the sun. 

From: Basal cell carcinoma - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/basal-cell-

carcinoma/.../syc-20354187

"Oct 5, 2016 - Basal cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma 

begins in the basal cells — a type of cell within the skin that produces new skin 

cells as old ones die off. Basal cell carcinoma often appears as a slightly 

transparent bump on the skin, though it can take other forms."

Later in her life Mother developed:

"Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells 

arising in the squamous cells, which compose most of the skin’s upper layers 

(the epidermis). SCCs often look like scaly red patches, open sores, elevated 

growths with a central depression, or warts; they may crust or bleed. They can 

become disfiguring and sometimes deadly if allowed to grow. More than 1 

million cases of squamous cell carcinoma are diagnosed each year in the U.S., 

and (depending on different estimates) as many as 8,800 people die from the 

disease. Incidence of the disease has increased up to 200 percent in the past 

three decades in the U.S."

Why are people so afraid of cancer? It's just a word. 

Spelled backwards it is RECNAC meaning Rejoice, Empower, it is Certainly Not 

An Calamity. 

Change the word cancer to answer meaning you will fight get an answer for your

disease.

Are we more afraid of the pain than dying. The doctors prescribed prescription 

medications for chronic pain like: oxycodone, tramadol, OxyContin, Dilaudid, 

Cymbalta, Fentanyl Transdermal System, Roxicodone, Percocet, acetaminophen/

oxycodone, Ultram, MS Contin, Percocet, Butrans , methadone and the list goes 

on and on. 

Am I afraid of cancer? If can remember what I said above and realizing that 

death is just a part of life, I believe I'll be all right no matter what the outcome.
