Thread: Genetics and Lymphoma!

    Default Genetics and Lymphoma!

    Not good. Seven times higher for a sibling.

    Genetics

    Lymphoma can be the result of a genetic predisposition that is inherited from family members. It is possible to be born with certain genetic mutations or a fault in a gene that makes one statistically more likely to develop cancer later in life.


    Later for me, wasn't really that much later, I was 43 the first time. 49, the 5th time.

    I have had people ask me what it was like being on chemo. Being, I am a pro at it, I spent 5 years and 3 months doing so, total, I can answer that question by only saying, and to those with sensitive ears, put on your ear muffs and blinders, " it was ******* hard." No other way to describe it. Ask Terry, he will probably tell you too.

    So, for those of you who do plumbing, whatever, with possible bad things hanging around, use masks and gloves, just incase. The disease will blow you out of the water, and there is no place to hide. So, not talking about, not using commonsense and saying, and thinking, it won't happen to me, is just plain dumb.

    Thanks for sharing Cookie. I try and use my mask as much as possible but am a little guilty of not using it enough. I say these things on the show "Dragons Den" that where like peel and stick nose screens. I've been looking for those with no luck.

    I pretty much stopped using all precautions, lol. I never did anything wrong to get anything, but, it still happened. So, I am trying a Seinfield skit, the one where George did the " opposite" and, all was hunky-dorey. So, now I smoke 2 packs a day. Only kidding! See, who is paying attention, lol.

    The "Dragons Den" that must be in your neck of the woods, I never saw that here. What is that John? It sounds interesting. I missed knowing about the nose peel screens, too. Is that for sun protection?

    I think, stress causes all kinds of bad things to a person's health. That is why, I honestly, eliminated what I could. You got one life to live and I will be damned if someone will tell me how to live mine. That kind of stress is not good. Like Terry's favorite song, " Be happy." People can be more toxic to another than if you drank asbestos. If you get sick, you sit alone in that chair getting draino dumped into your veins, no one sits with you. When you pass away, no one shares the box or urn with you, either. Just my thought for the day, intersting isn't it? LOL. Well, off to work, so, I can share the wealth

    It's like our "Shark Tank" on Friday nights, only the Canook version. In fact, the evil Kevin O'Leary dude is on it as well. I hate that snobby SOB. I hope it is just an act

    Hmmm, what is "shark tank" I think I missed that, too. I know some real snobby people, but, I am not one. I talk to everyone, The other day, I was walking into a lobby and, I see 2, 20's laying on the floor. I looked around and saw too many people to say, " did anyone lose this?" An older man walked by and said, " it is your lucky day." I looked at him, saw his hat, which said, " WW2 Purple Heart" and, said, " no this is your lucky day" and, tucked it into his pocket. Well, we must had talked for an hour. Then, his wife came over, and we talked, then, his kids, lol. I talk to people standing in the elevator. I like even elevator music.

    And also very good was that his wife did not slap you in the face for flirting with her old man. Elevator music? I like lady Gaga music. Actually its her videos I like (blush).

    lol. I was heading to work, and, as it was now, listen to this Bob. I ended up in a microburst! Wow! I couldn't get out of my car, I couldn't see to drive, and, the car was lifting up, not rocking back & forth, but, up & down! The lightening was horrible, the thunder was really loud. I was kind of scared to say the least. But, I figured, if the car was lifting up, if I go outside so, will I be for sure. So, I sat in the car, played the music and, waited. It seemed like it was never going to end. I drove up eventually, and parked infront of the place where I work, and ran out in it, and ran into a place that was flooding. Wow. Now, I was sloshing in water. This was not fun.

    But, I was happy

    I didn't want to go to work, lol. As it was I have to train a new girl tomorrow, and I don't want to do that either. Sooooo, you might read another "cheery" post, lol
