      well, it is mainly me I guess, as I cannot seem to write to someone without a name.  (didnt even understand the song Horse with No Name)  its easier to respond to LV than to say anonymous.  As for the BLFC kinda neat but its not anyones concern, its just so nice to know that people out there do care, since it is not that way here in real life. cept for my family.

      Over the years I have made many many friends on MPIP  I am sort of on the quiet side, except when the board seems to be in a ??? I have had so many reach out to me in cyberhand holding throughout all my 'things' and continue to do so, that it is kind of neat thinking you feel I have a fan club hahah.  Thankyou for that

      Sometimes on a cancer board hearts and flowers are what is needed.  the darkside had its place for sure, as I guess many of you don't feel the need for hearts and flowers and non mind weighing things.  I havent lost anyone to melanoma but did lose my dear brother to prostate cancer, and I guess I shall be the only one (thank goodness) in my family with melanoma so I do not know how it feels to lose a loved one to mel.

      ah well.  I dont think this is a debating site, there is no right or wrong opinions, support is what is needed.  The knowledge to know when someone is scared, hurt or simply feeling yucky.  Anger yes at having this stupid insane disease and all that it encompasses.  the Main board is not the place for me unless its to do with treatment, or symtoms. 


      Sorry you feel it is too much heart and flowers.  I happen to love….love and care for one and all (even those warts)  (I have plenty of real ones too it seems though not real warts I guess) hahah.  If my BLFC get to you simply take extra dose of ENO fruit salts they do work wonders on queasy tummys (or so I hear)  or Pepto Bismal  (if that is in the USA)
