Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer? Ask if you do!
I fell asleep to “Muse” the album “The Resistance”
I exercised to “Boston” self-titled album, followed by “Kelly Clarkson” the album “Meaning of Life”
Monday I got up & dressed in my exercise clothes. I did my exercises. Then I wrote my “WEEKEND UPDATE” post, well I finished it. All of the beginning music links was stuff I listened to on my iPod or in the car on my iPod coming back to Regina. I grabbed those links Sunday night.
After 3 days of me being away, I thought Brewster would miss me, boy was I wrong! I came into our condo, & Brewster just looked at me as though he was thinking “Humph, he’s back I guess”. Dad was helping me with some of my tiny bags, he came in right behind me. Brewster was much more enthused to see my dad than he was to see me.
He was freaking out on Monday while I was making my veggie juice & boiling eggs for the week. He even asked to be up on my lap. He put his front paws on my knees for me to pick him up, which happens very rarely unless you’re Kim or her sister. Kim told me that he really doesn’t like the sound of our instant pot when the steam is released.
So as of Monday I got as much done as I needed to for the week (food wise). Kim relaxed on the weekend as I told her she needs & deserves to.
I was speaking last week about my mental health & specifically about my depression. I mentioned that I was stressed, frustrated, & stubborn. Both stress & frustration self-inflicted. I always think, “I NEED to do more. I can do better than this!” I am my own worst critic, & brain cancer is what made me expect more from myself. The stubbornness is in my genes from my mother’s side of the family, mostly my grandfather.
I’d exercise with equipment at my parents’ house in a short lived university student career. I was in much better shape way back when. I didn’t know how to study really, so I took WAY too many study breaks at home & spent my time exercising, mostly doing pushups, sit-ups, & dumb bell curls.
I’m no expert on any type of mental illness, I do understand that 1/5 Canadians deal with their own mental illness. I don’t know of any that do on a daily bases, if I did, it’s not my story to tell. I personally don’t find mine to be something to hide from anyone.
I guess those that have a mental illness will deal with it however they choose to? I guess it’s the same way a gay person chooses to announce being gay. Probably many issues mostly wondering/worrying how others will react.
So I hope you’ll join me as I go into this new adventure?
The 4 big albums I’m waiting for this year are follow ups to these 4 albums
2006 10,000 Days
2016 THE LAST HERO
2017 GRACE STREET
2015 STURM UND DRANG
I think it’s high time to get over “Creed” & move on to “Alter Bridge”! They’re “Creed” with music lessons & a tenor singer with INCREDIBLE range!
I’ll take “Alter Bridge” 9/10 times. I do enjoy the first “Creed” album quite a bit though.
I do enjoy some of his stuff, not all of it, but most of it. He’s 54 years old & from New York. He’s a solo artist/singer song writer. Plays really good guitar while doing lead vocals. Some of the stuff he does baffles me. I only have 2 albums “Mama Said” & a “Greatest Hits” compilation.
1991 MAMA SAID
2000 GREATEST HITS
