I walk because, I Care

O.K. I have many reason's to eat or stuff myself. My husband Clinton, has Cancer and We have been battling it for over 6 years now. His cancer is very rare and it is only slightly, treatable not curable. He also has Myasthenia Gravis an incurable neurological disease related to his Cancer.
For the last 6 years it has been a very busy rollercoaster. But he has the best sense of humor of any one I know. That itself keeps me going. He is one of the smartest men anyone could ever meet. He ...

For the last 6 years it has been a very busy rollercoaster. But he has the best sense of humor of any one I know. That itself keeps me going. He is one of the smartest men anyone could ever meet. He has literally found a 3 of his own chemo treatments and brought them to the attention of his oncologist.
He has had over 16 different protocols of chemo therapy and almost 20 surgery's in the last 6 years

His Mother has survived two different kinds of Cancer.
His sister is 11 years free of Breast Cancer.
His Father died of Leukemia at 55

On top of this I have had 3 lumps removed and thankfully they were benign!!!
my Aunt Died of Stomach Cancer.
My uncle is fighting CLL Leukemia.
I've had two friends die of brain Cancer.
and several others that are affected with or have lost there lives.

myself well I have Heart Disease, High blood pressure( from the age of 18) and Diabetes

I know that everyone has stress in their life. I am a Stress Eater.
I do Enjoy my walks though it is my time to myself most of the time i walk alone which is great because there is no one yelling or anything.
It is peaceful. I do take pictures when I'm walking and hope to share these with you. . Autumn is my most favorite time of the year. Of course I Live in Washington so rain will start very soon and won't end until next spring but I will walk every day. Most of the time i roll out of bed put whatever clothes i find on and stretch then head right out the door. because if i don't i know it will be a day i don't go for a walk and that starts a bad cycle of not walking.
Other days i have to wait until my husband has his chemotherapy we come home i make sure he is ok then i have to muster up the energy to go for my walk. I just think to myself. If nothing else i do it for him :}

I hope to encourage Everyone to add walking in to their daily routine. It doesn't take a whole lot of time and is considered one of the best exercises that you can do :}
if you don't walk just walk to the end of your drive way then everyday add another step:)

Know yourself & your body if there is ever anything that doesn't seem right to you go see a Dr. & make them understand that it isn't normal for YOU. Make them listen! if they wont there are other Dr.s out there that will.
Be true to yourself After all there is only one, "YOU"!! :)
Good Luck to everyone :}
so i have been off SP for quite awhile, life gets in the way and spirals out of control, and mine certainly did just that. my husband is still kicking Cancer's Ass everyday, 9 years past what doctors gave him.
Then this year my 20 year old daughter was diagnosed with not 1 but 2 different Cancers and had to undergo two major surgeries and radiation therapy all before she turned 21, but she is amazing and kicked Ass. yes she will have to be watched the rest of her life but is expected to live a full one
These two people are my heros in every sense of the word, they give me strength (=
