Thoughts after being diagnosed with cancer (self.)

submitted by Gilgamesh-23

Hi TRP community, long time lurker here. I wanted to share with you the story of me being diagnosed with lymphoma cancer,through a red pill lense.

A little bit about myself : I'm a 25 years old dude, I work as a freelancer in web development. Found out about the illness 3 months ago. I don't have any Health Insurance, nor the funds necessary to afford the treatment. I'm just waiting for the end at this point. I don't know if this is the right place to post, but at this point this is the only community I feel at ease in. Here are some conclusions I came to with this experience:

  • Without the Red pill I would have died a virgin:

Like most in my teenage years I was as blue pill as it gets , put girls on a pedestal, got cheated on etc. I'm very thankful for having discovered this community, I always appreciated truth and TRP is as true as it gets like most of you know by now. Worked on myself, tried to change my mindset about sexuality and attraction and my life changed. This shit works if you put in the work.

  • Ultimately family are the only ones who really care about you.

Once people know you're dying every conversation becomes awkward af. People whom I considered my best friends now do their best to avoid me, rarely ask about me or come visit. My parents are devastated, coming from a poor family there's not much they can do but they tried everything without much success. So never put anyone before your family, when shit hits the fan they'll be the only ones supporting you.

  • LTR are not what you think they are. AWALT.

Before my diagnosis I was dating a girl for three months while having ONS and some plates. When she knew I was sick, she got depressed at first then just disappeared. Women will feel the weakness no matter the circumstances. Was not disappointed as I knew my sidebar. Still feels weird to experience it firsthand.

Conclusion: I know I'm not saying anything new here, all this had been said multiple times. The RP made me live a good few years. I wish I could have discovered it sooner. Please everyone reading this, live life to fullest and get health insurance :D .

Thank you TRP community for your inspiration and hard work.

PS: I'm sorry for my elementary english, it's not my mother tongue.

edit: When I first posted this I didn't think it would cause much traction. The community was amazing with many insightful comments and encouraging stuff. I now feel accompanied by an army in this battle. This is more than a subreddit it's a brotherhood.

Many people offered to help me financially with the treatment, I don't know if this is the right way to do this. Mods please fix it if there is any problem. I made a bitcoin wallet and can also get funds through western union/money gram cash delivery.

For doxxing myself or personal info please feel free to PM me. I can't thank you guys enough.

Hey man, I'm really sorry to hear about your circumstances. We have a rule against requests for financial help except in a few specific cases. Can you PM me or the mods some proof of yourself and what's happening medically, or take out the bitcoin address? I don't want to cut you off of a possible support network, but we have to be careful for scammers.

[–]hopeNsorrow 721 points722 points  (29 children)

Oncologist here. Where do you live? If you live in the States, you can get treatment regardless of Insurance. This is a aggressive cancer that will kill you quickly without proper treatment. PM me please.

[–]hottake_toothache 144 points145 points  (0 children)

I pray that he contacts you are you are able to point him towards treatment.

[–]GluteusMaximus90 1 points1 points [recovered]

I'm a doctor also.

Lymphoma can be curable in young adults.

It's not the end of the road OP.

Contact this oncologist please.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Hey I did and he confirmed me the same things my treating doctor told me. Unfortunately he doesn't have an idea on the health care policy in here, so I'm still searching for a solution. Great insight tho, thank you everyone.

[–]Trumpler157 16 points17 points  (4 children)

Is there some way I can help with the funding? I don't have a lot of money (student), but I would be happy to send over some money to get the ball rolling. If you set up a Bitcoin wallet I'll send you BTC. If not I sincerely hope you can get what you need bro.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Thank you man, updated my original post with BTC info. Please don't increase your hardships just for me.

Set up a gofundme, do something, this is your life your talking about. I respect the calm with which you write this post but there's gotta be a way to fight this.

[–]yuyevin 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It's really just a great time period to be alive. Few hundred years ago life expectancy was way shorter. People don't realize how lucky we are...

[–]mintman72 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's great to hear! Thanks for letting me know.

[–]mindstruggle 165 points166 points  (31 children)

Wow, I'm honestly speechless. The aspect of life being threatened at your prime is definitely something I wouldn't wish on my enemy. You have read the red pill and have seen that it works, the message the Red Pill has for you right now is two things.

  1. Be strong, for yourself and those around you. Life is fucking unfair but it's worth it. That's all I can say.

  2. Be grateful, for whatever happens, be satisfied with your life and that will bring true happiness in the face of tragedy. Hope you come out healthy and beat cancer's ass.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Thank you for the nice words, trust me it means a lot.

[–]Throwawaters 46 points47 points  (5 children)

My best friend starts chemo next week he's 21.

I'm meeting up with him this weekend and love him like a brother.

How can I help him I have no idea what to say or do?

Man I wish you the best from the bottom of my heart.

[–]no_face 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Cancer sucks, but the best thing about getting it in the 20s is that your body can withstand chemo and you have a much higher chance of survival than getting it in your 50s.

Treat it, you don't need to pay. WTF do you care about your credit.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

We don't have credit cards here. You either have the money or you don't.

[–]Sk8tr_Boi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bro, if you can't get chemo, at least go for cheaper alternative therapies.

Go to the states where you can freely get a hold of cannabis oil as treatment. You won't lose anything by trying it. I hope you look it up and it works for you.

[–]theworlds 2 points3 points  (1 child)

We are praying for you brother. Fight this bro!

[–]jackandjill22 14 points15 points  (17 children)

Life is unfair? I'm literally staring at my insurance card right now(around the same age). There are people who have credit cards made from pure gold. I don't understand how this happens.

[–]invisiblepower 12 points13 points  (16 children)

Life's an unfair game. Some people won the lottery (I did), but happiness isn't found in the gold.

[–]mushroom_overlord 3 points4 points  (2 children)

You do you, but some people just aren't the same. Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell could have afforded Lambos, but it didn't seem to do anything for them in the end. At the end of the day it's just a car once the initial thrill wears off.

Granted, if what makes you happy is getting laid it might help pull girls looking for your money.

[–]2awalt_cupcake 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I just like fucking tbh. Wish more girls were just down to fuck like animals and then go home nonchalantly like we just got off work.

[–]mushroom_overlord 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I agree, would rather not have to spend time courting women when I've got actual important shit to do. FWB is a much better setup than an LTR or even plate for me at the moment, but women always have to push for more. Of course, if you want something you have to work for it so it's better to date than go MGTOW unless you have no sex drive so this is the last I'll complain about it personally..

[–]20CharactersAintEnou 1 points1 points [recovered]

You can be equally happy without one. Stop this defeatist attitude.

[–]woegni_z 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Thanks man for your story, many people will read this and they will think about there own life. How small our little bitchy problems are, I was a bit down the last few days but your post changed my mind. You may inspired many of us! Wish you best luck

[–]JackGetsIt 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You are the embodiment of redpill. Instead of using your illness for attention or sympathy you asked for neither in your post. You used your precious time to give the community a quality submission. We are in your debt.

Ultimately family are the only ones who really care about you

The largest lie of the bluepill narrative is that a LTR or wife becomes family and that a man can drop his guard. No. Under the right circumstances both will abandon you.

Thanks again for your post. You are in my thoughts.

[–]NeoreactionSafe 19 points20 points  (9 children)

 

My dad died of a similiar cancer (hodgkin's disease) and he went through years of chemotherapy until he was so worn out that he died (at 45) of some random thing.

What was unusual was that despite the pain he maintained a positive attitude through all of it.

That's all you can control.

Some forms are cureable and others not... so check to see what category you are in. If it can be treated with a realistic chance of a cure you might seek treatment somehow. Otherwise just let nature take it's course.

 

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

I'm sorry to hear about your dad. The form I have is stage 3 non hodgkinian large diffuse cells B (just translated don't know what it is called in english). I hear it's very responsive to treatment. Did one cure of chemo but couldn't continue afterwards. Thank you for sharing and for your concern.

[–]general_armchair 3 points4 points  (0 children)

know it's easy for me to say but there is always a way to find funding for treatment, don't give up. It's responsive to treatment, it's worth the fight. Please believe me, I'm a 25 year old survivor of diffuse large b cell non-hodgkins lymphoma. If I can be of any help as someone to talk to, please pm me.

[–]NeoreactionSafe 1 point2 points  (4 children)

 

If you can't get treatment I'd suggest meditations that reduce your stress and reactivate your natural immune response.

By reenergizing your immune response it allows your body to heal itself.

I suspect that most people have cancers that are at the lower stages all the time. Once the cancer "breaks out" (metastasizes) then it's a race between you and the "rebellion" of rogue cells. Chemo (and radiation) is designed to slow down the "rogue cells" and give your immune system the chance to catch up.

Ultimately it's your own immune system that must win.

Focus on the win.... don't just give up because that will help the rogue cells.

 

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Very insightful comment thank you. Any medication you can suggest ? Will search for the equivalent here. Doctor gave me paracetamol and tramal for the pain and some medication to reduce the night sweats.

[–]refunkulation 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You need vast improvement in nutrition and exercise, see my post further down the page.

Everything starts at the cellular level. You have to understand that, you have to understand the disease at a very molecular level to understand how you're going to beat this.

Positive energy, and meditation are certainly helpful factors. But they're just helpful, they aren't treatments. Your body is an incredibly complicated system, but nearly everything in it relates to nutrition.

Research vegetarian diets and the impacts on your body with cancer. You need to be sure every single day you are eating properly, you need structure.

Apple cider vinegar I've heard is a factor that helps. If I were you I'd be researching everything about lifestyle for people with cancer in order to fight the battle.

Watch Tony Robbins videos, or other speeches online for changing your attitude. Attitude will impact lifestyle, and your lifestyle needs to be good food and exercise, everyday. Belief you're going to overcome, money is just an obstacle, eating healthy and exercising is entirely up to you. Take everyday moment by moment, rebuild yourself at the extreme micro level, you're young and can beat this.

[–]NeoreactionSafe 4 points5 points  (0 children)

 

All I can suggest it to keep an optimism that you might actually survive.

Your immune system determines the outcome.

Focus on positive energy.

If your will to live is strong and you face this with a warm heart you might find yourself alive a few years from now and recover.

But if it doesn't go well still have the warm heart and die in that mode.

Don't go down in fear... be brave and hold your head high no matter what happens.

The Red Pill Stoic Mind will help.

My dad used to even crack jokes despite fully advanced cancer, so you can find strength if you choose to.

 

[–]tallwheel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like exactly what my mom had. And she was able to go into full remission from treatment. Please don't give up. There must be a way you can secure the funds.

[–]OldGuyRedux 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I am also a TRPer - a little less lately - but work in this field especially advanced SAFE clinical trials. Go to clinicaltrials.gov and spider your exact situation. For what it's worth, stay away from Chemo and Radiation as much as possible if you still can. The antibody drugs are generally easier on you though you will feel nausea and chills (usually a good sign they are working ;)

Go for Phase 3 trials as priority... Phase 2 likely dicier

Just saw you have no insurance - go for charitable care, go crowdfund.. also the Trials can cover costs possibly along with drug company appeals

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Will look into it thank you.

[–]OldGuyRedux 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah just list and go punch the numbers to everywhere you want to get treated - talk to the Onc nurses. If you need more help ping me and we'll find a way to connect off the grid.

[–]GunnarX 36 points37 points  (20 children)

I have heard of ketogenic diets almost halting cancer tumour growth. It may be worth looking into, even though I don't quite understand what lymphoma is.

An older (2011) study with 16 people: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3157418/

"These pilot data suggest that a KD is suitable for even advanced cancer patients. It has no severe side effects and might improve aspects of quality of life and blood parameters in some patients with advanced metastatic tumors."

Might be worth a try. Also - keep that mental state up. I swear to god your mind can control your health, for better or for worse

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Keto diet is great, been on it for more than a year. Stopped when I was diagnosed but will look into it.

[–]sweetmagwheels 23 points24 points  (2 children)

There are lots of other treatments you can do yourself! Start right now by shocking your system and stop eating any dairy, gluten and red meat. Eat tons of fruit and leafy greens.

Drink a tablespoon of bicarbonate mixed with water everyday to get your body as alkaline as possible (look this up, its crazy how some people have cured themselves with this).

And cbd-oil, seriously, get the strongest type and start using it yesterday.

This might sound like mumbo jumbo to some, but people have proven this stuff works by treating themselves. The human body can handle cancer by itself to a large extent if you just help it along by not putting more bad stuff in your body continuesly and let it do its thing uninterupted.

My hope goes out to you brother, kick cancers ass and own this life. I have been suffering from undiagnosed neurological problems for the past year and doctors say it might be spinal cancer if im unlucky, but i am doing all i can already to let my body work on healing itself from whatever is wrong and create an enviroment in my body that cancer-cells and bad bacteria/viruses wont be able to grow in.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Noted ! Will give it a go thank you. Good luck to you too, hope you'll be doing fine. Stay strong as well brother (y)

[–]FrodoMaiBaggins 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Have you heard about medical cannabis? I would look into it since you don't have nothing to lose.

Watch these clips:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hUoyXKf81c

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxrKyjeClTk

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDYQN500rFU

Like /u/sweetmagwheels said, if i were you i would get strong cannabis oil (on top of a good diet and exercise) and take it every day. Cannabis has legit helped epilepsy, parkinsons etc. diseases and has some studies on preventing cancer too if you google that shit.

I've also read that taking sodium bicarbonate (aka baking soda) is a good way to manage body pH levels. You should read into this more and test your pH too, all this shit can mess up your body.

It's really important to have a good attitude and not give up no matter what your doctor says, minimizing stress is very good for the body. Don't underestimate the power of mind, it can do amazing things even if it sounds fucking retarded. Be like Conor Mcgregor, believe in yourself that you will beat that shit.

[–]The3rdGodKing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've heard of plant based diets stopping cancer too, you should look into that.

[–]no_face 2 points3 points  (7 children)

ZeroCarb bro. https://zerocarbzen.com/

Do not eat any plant matter. Meat is a bit more expensive, but you can get cheap ground meat at walmarts.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Yo, others saying eat only fruit and veggies. Which is it reddit?

[–]WolfofAnarchy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Plants, especially Broccoli, are fucking healthy. Don't listen to that dude

[–]The3rdGodKing 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Almost all of the nutrients come from the Earth. Meat is to be eaten sparingly, the diet pyramid.

He needs proper medical treatment. Chemo is his best bet. Everyone saying do this or do that will make him waste money on things that won't do a damn thing.

[–]tallwheel 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Exactly. He has been told he has a form of non-hodgkins lymphoma that is highly responsive to treatment. He needs to get the money for chemo and just do it. If he wastes time and money with diets and alternative treatments he is just going to end up like Steve Jobs.

[–]moospot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's sad that he can't get treated only because he doesn't have the money for it.

[–]AmkSk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There is an episode of Tim Ferriss's podcast with Dom D'Agostino, where they talk about ketogenic diet and fasting related to chemo. Basically, there are some studies and examples of people, who had great results when fasting before chemo. Check it out, hope it will help.

[–]Ether_Freeth 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Dude i dont know where you live. But if you are still reasonably healthy you might want to think about moving. If you are decent as a web developer you can probably find a job easy enough in europe. ANd if you got to france , germany , or the netherlands then medical treatment for your condition is not only decently affordable but also of quite high standard.

And almost all these countries have it built into their rule of law that you have to be helped regardless of whether you can pay.

Now i know i make it sound easy which it is not. Because there are quite a few hoops to jump through but you should look at it. You will probably end up with a decent debt if you survive regardless but being poor is curable death is kinda permanent. You only get one life and any option to make it last is a good one.

[–]shakespeareSMG 26 points27 points  (8 children)

Try GOFUNDME for money medical procedures.

With the clock ticking we are all reminded we have so little time.

We all have the same terminal illness--life.

But shit, how liberating to truly live like there's no tomorrow.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Real talk ! gofundme is great, but I can't use it because my country isn't supported and there is no way to get the funds to my local bank account. Only way to receive donations from abroad is via money transfer companies like western union. Really appreciate it tho.

[–]the-grinder 9 points10 points  (4 children)

What about bitcoin/litecoin? Being serious.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

I'm not sure. Is it possible to transfer funds from bitcoin to a local account or it's just to pay stuff online ? Because our hospitals only accept checks and cash.

[–]the-grinder 5 points6 points  (2 children)

You'd probably just sell the bitcoin/litecoin for whatever your local currency is. Not sure what county you're in but you could probably find an exchange.

[–]Collegia_Titanica 8 points9 points  (2 children)

How long do you think you have ? It's very easy to be supportive towards someone in such a case, but all these comments come from people more fortunate, often in comfort and relative happiness. Many people have never had to deal with death on proximity and it takes a certain character/inner strength to take it in and still radiate positivity.

Even if you know you're going to fall, you owe it to yourself to give up a good fight. I believe if you have The Fire , nothing can take you down

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Great comment very much appreciate it. My treating doctor urges me to do the treatment as it is a very dangerous type of cancer, tells me every day you lose is working against you. She didn't tell how much time I have left.

[–]Neurodegenerate_ 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Dude go with conventional modern evidenced based cancer treatment. Dont go for any alternative herbal type mumbo jumbo. There are ways to get proper health care without insurance too. I am doc but not an oncologist. Hope you had a proper consultation with your oncologist too. Lymphoma is aggressive and you need to be treated quickly and effectively. Good luck,

[–]mr_friedchicken 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Guys there are over 1500000 people here lets all chip in even if it is 10 buck or 20 or 5, and send him money through western union.

This story has really touched me, I'm broke as fuck but willing to help because life is more important than money.

[–]Modredpillschool[M] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Please do not send any bitcoin/money until the mods are able to confirm his identity and situation. I don't want anybody here to be scammed. I will reply to your comment if/when I get verification.

I am touched by your post and i am not an easy emotional persona.

I know first hand by an own personal disease and follow up depression that woman are repelled by weakness.

You deserve better, i implore you can work your way out somehow.

[–]biggerbetterjobs 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Dude, you need to get treatment. Don't just wait for death. There are people out there willing to help you whether they know you or are strangers.

You or a close friend/relative started a gofundme page of some kind to help cover the costs of treatment. You're part of a group of 200,000 + like minded people here who I'm sure would at least throw a buck or two your way.. The more wealthy members probably more. Most wealthy people are smart and therefore charitable to those in need.

There's also organizing benefit/charity events among other things. Worst comes to worse.. Just do what you can to get the treatment and figure out how to pay the bills later. This is your life we're talking about.

Hope you pull through man.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

There's practically no way to get funds online deposited to my country. You need to have a high value card to do so. Only way people online is by direct cash transfer, stuff like western union. I'll see if I can find a way.

[–]refunkulation 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Can you message me the country you're located in? I want to try and help you. I've worked with freelancers around the world and its never been an issue to get them funds, there are many different ways to move funds around the world.

[–]devanoharo 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Holy shit. As a 22 year old dude, I was diagnosed with Leukemia 3 months ago too and this is all dead-accurate on my half as well. The girls, the friends, and especially the family.

You can only rely on yourself, and your family is the only people who truly care about you.

If you need to talk to someone going through similar mental and physical stresses you can always DM me. Keep strong regardless, friend.

Hi bro. I am a software engineer too. Why don't you come to Europe to get treated? We have a hard time hiring good developers here.
Tell me how I can help.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Thought about it. Visa procedure is tough, you can't just go work there need to study abroad first. It would take a long time which I don't have right now. Thank you brother, if I manage to get through this I'll think about it. Very much appreciate it.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

It does. But you still gotta pay a percentage firsthand in order to benefit from it. Did everything in my power but couldn't raise the funds. It is what it is. Grateful for your concern tho.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (17 children)

Start a gofund me don't give up

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

I started a fundraising facebook page but it didn't lead to anything besides inciting pity. The fundraising websites like gofundme and co are great but to get it rolling you need your social media friends contributing first. This is impossible as payment online is very restricted in my country. And receiving funds from these sites to my country is nearly impossible.

[–]RPStone 9 points10 points  (1 child)

What country do you live in?

[–]Sedunois 9 points10 points  (12 children)

How much would you need? This forum reaches a lot of people - see if we can help.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Managed to get 20% of the funds, still need around 8000$. I'm not sure how I feel about it. This community gave me a lot. I wouldn't want anything more than the ideas and stories shared here that made me kill the beta and be the man I am today.

[–]elchucknorris300 17 points18 points  (8 children)

You only need $8k to live?! Wtf

Yes :D sad but true. The world is fucked up but that's just the way it is.

[–]RPStone 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Man fuck that. Doxx yourself and post us the gofundme link

[–]elchucknorris300 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Have you heard of peer to peer lending? Take out a loan for 8k.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

I tried to so, it's not an easy task when you're not in the US. Tried many websites without success. Local peer to peer lenders are out of the question because first of all this is a hefty sum around here they won't trust you with it especially if you're sick.

[–]jackandjill22 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This worlds terrible. People have "Gofundme" for survival.

[–]invisiblepower 3 points4 points  (2 children)

First of all I just want to say I am sorry.

My mom was diagnosed with cancer when I was 13 years old, she had already had it for a good while at that point and the chances for surviving were slim. Her only way of surving was to go to back to her home country (Germany) together with my dad, where she was operated in Hamburg. She survived against the odds after many operations, and I remember visiting her on the hospital a few days after. At that time I didn't know she had cancer, as everybody around me and my sister, and brother were told to not say anything to us. I am forever my parents thankful for that, coping with my little sister (5 years) crying all night was enough for me.

I just want to let you know that there is hope in the darkness, things that shouldn't happen do happen. You are a very brave human for dealing with this the way you are.

All the best wishes to you man, and even though you mentiod it would be hard to get out the money from gofund me, I still think you should try.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Hey man thank you for sharing, you can be brave but you still need a reminder from time to time, I'm grateful.

I kind of know what it feels like, my mother had breast cancer when I was 20, two weeks before passing a big test to get into engineering school. She didn't tell me until after the results. Parents go through a great deal for us. Hope everything's alright now.

[–]invisiblepower 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I only get more and more grateful for what my parents have done for me through out the years.

Thanks for reminding me that there is no tomorrow. People seem to take this game for granted, wasting days and lifes on things they don't even like. I am glade you're having a positive attidude, because I have come to realize that being positive in the dark times is one of the toughest things a mans mind can do.

[–]NotMyBestEffort 2 points3 points  (0 children)

OP points out to us our reality. Life is trying to kill us. Life is 100% fatal. Live as if you are going to die - you are.

[–]FedoraGrab 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I don't have any medical suggestions or recommendations mate, but maybe this post, much like the rest of this thread, shows you support and brotherhood. People will read your words like I have and will want to send you best wishes, good luck and words of inspiration.

Hell, if this only gives you a small smile and a nod then it's done its job. Keep on laughing and living, as one of the other dudes said in this thread, keep a positive attitude. Relevant

Keep fucking rocking on fella.

I am not a doctor but my gut response is to say "you can beat it".

Maybe there is something to "female invincibility" but I have had my mother and grandmother defy all expectations.

OTOH my dad had stage 4 brain cancer so "Boom - head shot" and dead in 3 months.

[–]Perceval7 2 points3 points  (3 children)

You seem to be a man who really enjoys life :)

A few days ago, I happened to meet a 12 year old boy who has been living with a transplanted kidney from very early in his life. He has to take medication every day, just to prevent it from being rejected. His trips to hospital are rather frequent... He told that the real strength of a man relies on being able to keep a smile on your face, even on the hardest times.

I'm sorry to read your friends are leaving you... I think it is rather understandable. They are just taking the easy path, and are probably trying to detach from you... Or maybe they never were really friends to begin with. As someone who has dealt with the death of a friend very early (he and his brother were literally killed by their psycho mother, as some kind of revenge... I was in 8th grade...) , I know it is definitely not easy...

Either way, better just forget them, and focus on living the rest of your life (which I hope won't end any time soon) with your family and those who care and are there for you. Do whatever you enjoy and get the best out of life! Stay positive and never give up! You are still young so it is easier less hard for you to fight cancer. Other people on here already gave great tips :)

Keep strong and show cancer what you've got! There is still hope!

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

Thank you for the nice reply. I assure I won't give up. The replies on this post have been overwhelmingly positive. Haven't been this happy and pumped for weeks. Thank you all.

[–]boatflow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Listen man, this is one of mother nature's biggest shit tests and you must hold frame. Please don't feel like this is the end just because you don't have access to chemo. Look into Gerson therapy, which is essentially an all juice diet people use to combat cancer. Look up Norman Cousins and his cure of illness through laughter. Take massive action and change your belief system through repetition. I'm not a doctor, do your own research and take the necessary steps. I expect to see you posting here for years to come. God bless you brother. Stay strong.

[–]Fedor_Gavnyukov 2 points3 points  (0 children)

look up dr. beck's videos on youtube. you can cure that shit through simple methods bro. at this point you got nothing to lose, so might as well try.

[–]ThroatPoka 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you're considering treatment that you can actually afford, look in to medical grade cannibis oil. Tons and tons of healing properties. Used to treat cancer for years, but due to its social stigma, it's rarely talked about, and most docs will suggest chemo over it - most docs won't even mention it. Please look into it. Good luck on your journey brother.

[–]liridoncenaj 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn OP. I'm no doctor and can't offer you any help in that area. All I can say is that whatever happens, be brave and know that life is just a cycle. Possibly in the next things won't turn out like this. I hope you understand the meaning of what i'm telling you and don't take it the wrong way.

[–]megadump44 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Sorry to hear that man. I read a thread recently about a guy who got IVs of incredibly high doses of Vitamin C and it reversed the cancer until he was completely free of it. I'd look into it.

Just some food for thought, the FDA banned intravenous Vitamin C. We both know the government isn't on our side. http://humansarefree.com/2017/06/fda-quietly-bans-another-cheap-cancer.html

[–]zilti 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I fucking love life

I fucking hate it. If it were possible I'd transfer that cancer over to me, but life's fucking unfair.

[–]Gilgamesh-23 1 points1 points [recovered]

It's only after you're facing death that you understand its value. You appreciate everything in life knowing you might die the next week. Life is the will to power. Read some Nietzsche. Enjoy life buddy, even though I know it's easier said than done.

[–]fartsofdoom 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hey man, big respect for handling your situation like you do. I'm going through a similar thing myself but an infection. Anyways, if treatment cost too much i would like to recommend you looking into DMT. It was used by soldiers in russia i believe during ww2 when it was cold as hell to keep them warm. Nowadays its used by bodybuilders and people who want to lose weight. Basically what it does is it uses the carbohydrates you consume as fuel to heat up the body (i think its dynamite) and cancer hates 2 things, not getting fed (the dmt uses all those sugars (carbs) you eat to produce heat so it wont get fed. The second thing it wont like is being warm. I might not remember this post as my pills make me dizzy as hell and english is not my nr1 language. Take care man

Not very relevant, but I just want to say your English is good. Native speaker, and I have to admit I never would have considered your text "elementary." I know it doesn't mean much given the situation, but don't doubt your ability, OP. I wish you the best and hope your remaining days are comfortable.

Shit, dude, this post brings tears to my eyes. We have the same age, I just realized how short life is, we make big plans for the future and forget that we can die tomorrow crossing the street. I read the entire post, it's really a fucked up situation but it's no good to give you pity. I don't know what you are going through but I know that the only fucking thing you really can control in life is your reaction, how you see the situation, aka your frame. You have a golden opportunity here, the opportunity to really live life, every moment of it. Go do everything that you are afraid of, go do epic things, you don't necessarily need money to do a lot of epic things. You can live more in the months you gave left than people live in their entire life. I am broke as fuck but you you can find a way to raise funds, I will help with what I can, just keep us updated.

Stay strong, brother, live an amazing life.

[–]SpongeDickSemenPants 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Very sorry to hear this OP. You have a good outlook and a strong mind, you're a good example for many of us.

[–]dude3166 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I can't even imagine what you're going through right now. Your post explains very well that we were born alone and we have to die alone. And people ignoring you and girls leaving even after knowing you are fighting a deadly disease is more cancerous than the disease itself! These people are representation of what a cancer look like in real life.

But they forget that what goes around comes all the way back around. These people who leave their dear ones in bad times will be left too when they'd need someone the most.

Stay strong, and whatever is left of this life enjoy it !

    I am sorry to hear about your condition fellow red pill brother. Many people live entire lives never knowing the truth and suffer based on blue pill living. The fact you are living while being unplugged makes your life 100 times more valuable then turning 100 and dying next to someone you hated and resented your whole life. I rather live a short time unplugged then a full long life living a lie. I will end with a quote.

    Mindset can also change everything. If you have the mindset that you are going to die, you will most likely kick the bucket. If you have the mindset of you're gonna live, you will have e a far better chance at surviving. I had a aunt that was working everyday and was as healthy as can be, then was found with cancer at age 50, and they estimated she had it for a year. She went into a state of depression and quit work, thinking she was dying. All the sudden she bacame extremely ill looking, despite the autopsy saying the tumor hadn't grown much at all since she had been diagnosed. A week later, she passed away. Don't be like her

    Don't throw in the towel yet brotha. My boy beat stage 4 lymphoma at 32 years old. He told me the key to his survival was never giving in. He went to work thru the chemo and lived his life like nothing was gonna beat him without a fight. He swore not to give in to the depression.

    He's fully recovered now, back to working and spinning more plates than me. He's my biggest inspiration in life. Goes out of his way to cheer me up when I'm down. He's a huge proponent of visualization. Just go hard. Be tough and stay as positive as you possibly during this tough time. Easier said than done, but just try for all of us. We're counting on you and we love you.

    Great insight man. The least I can do is tell you this post influenced me and I will try to live differently because of it. My close friend had stage 4 Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (in his mid 20s) and he is 100% totally fine now. Please get fucking help man. Trust me, you can. I'm dedicating my night out tonight to you!

    Thank you for being real and sharing this with us. This really changed my perspective on life as a red pilled man. Keep on fighting brother. We are all praying/wishing you the best. A comment above said something about the mind being a powerful thing. I truly believe that. Don't give up.

    [–]blette 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Look into big doses of intravenous vitamin C. Cheap as hell with evidence for being effective on blood cancers.

    Don't give up. I survived malignant melanoma. My brother survived 1 and a half years after being diagnosed with hodgekins blood cancer.

    [–]1CoupDeGrace22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    OP you motherfucker you better keep fighting the good fight, don't know where you're from but you can open a gofundme or whatever way to receive donations specifically for travel expenses to go to wherever treatment is most promising and accessible, people in here are more than willing to help you in that first step and hell even in your following steps until remission.IF there is nothing else share your fucking info for western union, you're not in the US anyway so no feminazis or white knights will be coming after you for browsing TRP.

    I understand you don't want pity, but sometimes we have to ask for help, there is always a price to be paid for everything, if you have it in you to fight it then don't be afraid of making yourself look bad, do what you must to survive.

    My father lost to cancer but he fought that bitch for as long as he could until I grew up and could take care of myself, and he was an old fucker at 60+ already at that time, there is no way at your age you can do worse than him, don't let this bullshit take your life, live for a better death.

    All the best and if there's anything another random rpiller like me can do to help, let me know.

    [–]ConfessionsofaLurker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    [–]Arabian_Wolf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Major part in curing cancer is psychological, anything you dreamed of do it now and don't hesitate, take the risk and hopefully by then your cancer is cured.

    Be well.

    [–]reddttt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Do you feel peace? Do you fear when the time comes? Has it set you free? Holy shit man, the thought of dying is unsoluble in my consciousness because I'm young like you, a little bit more young actually. I know it's worth two shits but I hope you get better, man!

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Sorry to hear about your predicament, wish I could give you some advice but have none. I guess just try and live your life as an example of how someone who is dying from cancer should live, set an example for others to follow. At the end of it I would think you want to look back and be proud of how you conducted yourself.

    I hear you on the friends disappearing, that's normal unfortunately. But sucks up the ass. Never had cancer, but have had some horrible experiences, and people you thought were friends just disappear, apparently some people only want to be friends with "fun" people. People I knew for years just vanished. Even family can be the same way, trust me I know, so count yourself lucky if you have supportive family.

    Reading some comments from people trying to help like offering you a job and telling you to make a go fund me... I've noted that you are making excuses after excuses just to give up and not even try.

      I'll be that guy.

      Post proof that you have being diagnosed with lymphoma cancer.

      It is only fair since people are giving you collectively large sums of money.

      Put your reddit name next to the paper that shows your diagnosis of the cancer and that it was 3 months ago.

      People are capable of being honest and of being dishonest, posting proof determines which one you're being right now.

      Just so people don't give me shit, would you agree that just because a person online tells you they have a condition, that they must be telling the truth?

      Man, the non existing level of questioning in this post is worrying, a bit of fucking critical thinking in here, regardless of whether the guy actually has cancer or not, you don't just take someone's word for it lol, especially online.

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Man, the non existing level of questioning in this post is worrying,

      That's because OP never really asked for help in his post, it was an afterthought. And it seems he sent you proof. Hopefully all is legit. He seems legit. I trust him. Whatever. Hope you get through it OP i'll donate up too

        Thanks for proving it, and I understand if you feel that I was rude, but it's internet so someone claiming they have something is not proof unless they actually provide evidence for it, which you have done.

        Just post the link that you PM'd me in your post description, that way people have no doubts that you're telling the truth!

        Good luck for your battle!
