Hello everybody. I would just like to say that this Saturday I ventured out into the city of Victoria to ya'll's theater there to watch pitch perfect 3. I did not don this adventure alone, I was joined by Mindy; a reader of the blog who decided to take on my challenge to go watch this movie and enjoy some good laughs and forget for one moment that we are dealing with cancer. In regards to the movie I have to say that it was fun, had some good music and I did enjoy it; I kind of expected a little bit more compared to the others. However, it's still a must go see in the theater. I must say the better part of my venture out was getting to talk and share stories with Mindy. There aren't a lot of people out there who are dealing with our type of cancer. So, when you find somebody who is and you can share your experiences with them it makes you feel less alone . Mindy has actually been through this so she's in remission, but means she still has to go get checked out to make sure that the cancer has not come back. I myself am currently going through the treatments of this of cancer . As we talked I have to say it was kind of fun sharing all the same experiences and finding out it is okay- this is normal. What I'm going through now is something that she went through as well; and to have somebody else who went through the same thing be able to share their moments is proof that you can make it through. This is a big deal and it's also kind of encouraging that everything will be OK and you will make it through this. Be it the side effects you have during chemo or the way you feel about yourself post surgery or the things that you missed that you could once do. For me personally it was the fact that I'm constantly tired. I've had to cut back from a lot of my volunteer work and I've been made to slow down. I've never been a person to slow down for anything, anybody who knows me will tell you that I've never slowed down. Its l like this disease has forced me to slow down which is something that I don't like . And one of the things that we got to share and discuss of course was dealing with the fatigue and getting little tidbit, hands on, how to deal with the side effects. We also discussed how there is really no more shock value since we were told we had cancer. Pretty much anything else we get told about in regards to health gets a "meh" reaction. I must say that I had a great time talking with Mindy. I had an even better time enjoying the movie, laughing it up with the best characters of the Bellas, including fat Amy and her major kick butt scene. I do encourage you to get a group of your girlfriends together go watch this movie, laugh, have a great time and just enjoy yourself because those are the memories that get you through hard times. Shout out to my crew that lives in El Campo/Louise and the surrounding area; don't you fret, I fully plan on being there Friday night at the opening here my home theater that I love so much. I sure do hope that my crew is there, the ones that have been there through thick and thin, who put up with me and all of my weird orders - like non cold beverages. I hope you guys are there and I hope everybody else can stop by and see the movie with me! And Mindy, thank you so much for going with me to see this movie it really did mean a lot to have a sister in this fight be with me.
