Long time reader, new account to provide a comfortable blanket of a anonymity. I don't know how much time I have left, as I have Chronic Myeloid
Leukemia and currently shuffling into year 3 with no remission. I quit going to the doctors because the medications they provided just made matters
worse, since stopping the meds I have felt healthier than I have in ages. Only downside is that according to all examples, I'm probably looking at
the last few years ahead of me.
All of that aside, the reason I created this account is because of the things I've experienced in my rather short time here on this planet. I've
read many threads on these forums, some of which are obviously complete rubbish by attention seekers, and others that go for 100s of pages with people
sharing experiences that they would probably not bubble at the chance to share in a regular room full of people. I can not allow what has happened to
me in life to go undocumented, so fantastical as it can sound. I promise I have never been abducted by aliens, tanned on a rock with a reptile man, or
hung out with a group of friends letting off chinese lanterns...but what I have seen and done deserves more than a passing memory as I die.
All I want to do is share with ATS the clearest, sharpest memories of some things that have happened to me over the years, sans exaggerations or mad
libbing. All I ask in return is that if any of you read my posts in the near future and anything I say hits a personal note with you, please pipe up.
The terrible thing of feeling lost in a sea of people is not knowing there are others like you floating out there as well.
