Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

Indeed CRGuy, alkalized water is a controversial topic here on Colon Talk. :shock: :shock: :shock: http://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=50333 And now we know that BigCarrot is just another facet of the Alkalized Water Industrial Complex. WE ARE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS P...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

I'm senior operator at a water treatment plant. We add caustic soda at the end of the process in order to raise the pH of the water we send into the system. The reason for this is that water with a pH below 7.0 or so will leach the lead out of old pipes. We put out water at about 7.5, but some othe...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

We drink water that I collect from a spring on top of a mountain at a national forest that we live in the foothills of. I wonder what its pH is. Also, whenever I can, I buy alkalized water. I have recently been making sure that my husband drinks it also, now that he has been DXed. The thing with dr...

Re: Products must have list for Chemo

Graham crackers may go nicely with the vanilla ensure. I try to bring saltines and peanut butter for my husband. Herbal, ginger teas are also a great idea. They help my husband with his nausea and are just comforting in general. My $0.02, don't travel light to chemo. See if you can get your mom a ro...

Re: Wives of husbands with Stage IV Colon Freaking Cancer

Sarah, I hear you sister. Some days are ok and I can function. Some days, it seems almost impossible to get out of bed, let alone converse with someone. I'm glad your are able to frame your MSK visit a little differently in your mind. I hope that very soon you will be able to add to the recent list ...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

I always wondered why there was a cancer zodiac sign. It seemed weird. Thanks, Justin. I learned something really cool today. Lee, thank you for sharing your story. I've read a lot of your posts and they give me hope every time. Peanut, the Folgers meme is awesome. OK, I got a new one: Person: What ...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

We all know that BigCarrot owns the media. Ok, gang, please let's not bring crossover from other threads here. This space belongs to all of us, so you can in fact, write whatever you please. I just want to act silly right now. mpbser, if you and I compared notes, I expect we would disagree on a lot ...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

The people I was ranting about in the very first post. Fortunately, those folks are rare. Most people are kind and genuinely want to help. A few, are just plain obnoxious. Rather than continue to stew about it, I wrote out some of my in-head responses. Now, admit it, BigCarrot is funny. Surely we ca...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

Hey, everyone needs to make their own choice. DH and I have made ours. We don't get to tell other people how to handle their disease and we'd appreciate the same courtesy in return. It's OK to agree to disagree. Now, let's please get back to humorous hyperbole. Also, anyone who disagrees with me has...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

This is a conspiracy of the carrot industry. BigCarrot wants us to be dependent on their product to turn orange. They don't want you to know the truth. You can turn orange from just a spray tan. I've been on the run from BigCarrot for a long time. I know their thugs will eventually find and silence ...

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

I definitely struck a chord here. Feel free to use any of these. Honestly, I was trying to blow off some steam and thought I was being funny. I'm glad some of you got a chuckle. I've had plenty of folks say things to me that just make me want to roll my eyes, and tell them to join the Flat Earth Soc...

Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

Ok, I am terrible. I admit it. But here's my rationalization: I am so tired of those few, but all to real individuals who have never had cancer, have never been a caregiver, and yet somehow know everything there is to know about cancer. Most people are kind and supportive, but to those others, I jus...

Re: Wives of husbands with Stage IV Colon Freaking Cancer

Let's hope this is the start of a tidal wave of good news for everyone. DH had a PET scan on Tuesday. The cancer is continuing to retreat under the onslaught of Folfirinox. There was as much, if not more reduction between April and June as there was between February and April. I think we're getting ...

Re: Still dizzy . . BUTT, still here . . .

Hi, AnneClare We haven't "met" because I am new to these boards. I have been thinking about you lately. I am not a doctor and have no experience with brain radiation. I have however had benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It sounds similar to what you are describing, especially wi...

Re: Beansmama Checking in

Oy! Beansmama, we've never conversed, but I think about you often. I am a caregiver, not a patient. I can't imagine that additional level of stress on top of the overwhelming stress of getting through each day with cancer. Here's what I hope and pray and wish for you: 1. Next month you will be NEL (...
