I'm hoping there isn't another thread like this. I did a search and saw one for stage 4, but nothing for everyone else. My very special friend on BCO (Tomboy), and I have talked about a Crazy Town thread for awhile now. I know she will be happy I finally took the bull by the horns!!

I wrote a little story about visiting Crazy Town last year on my blog, and I received some lovely emails from women all over the world talking about how terrifying those feelings can become. I thought I would share that story with my BCO sisters. I know many of you can relate to the craziness of worrying about recurrence or progression. I think my experience epitomizes the crazy place our minds can go. I've found when I can laugh at myself, I always feel better.

"My master bath has its own little room for the toilet. The sink, shower and tub are all in the same room. At night when I have to use the bathroom, I always turn on the closet light which is right next to my sink. This way I don't have to turn on all the lights above the sink. They are very bright and there are a lot of them. I do this so the brightness doesn't wake up my DH. Being the OCD person I am, I always wash my hands after using the restroom – even in the middle of the night.

One night last week, I was doing my usual ritual and I caught a glimpse of a big blackish/brown mark on the upper left side of my chest.This thing was huge. I could feel my heart beating out of my chest when I caught a glimpse of it. I'm sure many of you will know what I'm talking about - that feeling of dread.I ran my fingers over it and it felt raised. I couldn't imagine what it could be – it was SO big. I thought, "Oh great, here we go again, now I've got skin cancer." Then I decided to risk waking DH up by turning on the millions of lights above the sink. Then I got a closer look. UNBELIEVABLE!!……it was a piece of chocolate from a cookie I had eaten earlier!!!!! Apparently it had melted into my chest and I went to bed that way. Can you imagine?? Now if that doesn't give you a good laugh, I don't know what will. CRAZY TOWN!!!"

I have many stories since diagnosis. I call it going to Crazy Town. Some of them are funny, others not so much. I usually go there in the middle of the night when everyone is sleeping, and my mind wanders. There are no trains, planes or busses out of Crazy Town in the middle of the night. I also go there at times when I'm waiting on test results. I hope we can all share our Crazy Town stories. Talking about it has helped me to stay on the outskirts of the town. I've been really good about not visiting lately, but this week it's been a real challenge.

If you have tests coming up, or you just have a day where you're worried more than usual, or if you just want to hang out and chat, please stop in to visit. It is my hope we can have some fun here and get each other through on difficult days with humor, kindness and hugs!!

Much love to all,

Beppy ツ

P.S. If you've just been diagnosed, I strongly suggest starting a blog. Whether it be just for yourself, or you'd like to share it with others. It's been a good outlet to get my feelings out as well as a wonderful timeline to refer back to when needed.

Writing this from the hospital, where Bob was admitted this morning for a small intestine obstruction. He kept the pain to himself from its onset yesterday midday to when he got home from work after midnight—and when I asked him if I needed to take him to the ER, said no, he was feeling better. I slept like a rock, through my alarm, until I realized I'd be late for rehearsal. So I ran downstairs for breakfast & coffee; only when I went back up to get showered & dressed did I find the bed empty. Called his cell—he had gotten up at 6am and driven himself to the ER, where he was awaiting CT scan results. They’re keeping him in overnight, on nasogastric suction & IV fluids, to see if his small intestine will unkink. If not, they’ll have to operate

Bob is notoriously stoic. If he says "ouch" he's in agony. Even after the pain started, he worked all the way through the afternoon & evening. I asked why he didn't just check himself into his own hospital...and he reminded me that the GI group there contains the doc who perfed his colon during a colonoscopy 2 yrs. ago. He likes the group at St Francis, which is 10-15 min. from us.

Random observation about men: stoic through the big things, when they should complain, and fall apart when they have a cold.

Octo, hope your recovery is going well!

Lucy, your DGS's recovery just warmed my heart. I hope he continues to do well.

Iris, I've had a few root canals. They're unpleasant and expensive, but they're manageable. Hope you don't need one.

I'm personally thrilled that the temperature has turned cold. Made a new gingerbread recipe yesterday that used a half pound of butter; fortunately was able to offload most of it at a brunch. Also used three kinds of ginger: crystalized, fresh, and ground. So good!

Starting to think Thanksgiving: turkey is ordered, sisters and I are fighting over who brings dessert, and best of all DS is coming home for the long weekend!

Hugs to all crazies.

So glad Bob is feeling better!

The recipe is from the new Ottolenghi cookbook, Sweet. I found a copy of it on a UK website here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/you/article-488469...

I have the American edition, which is slightly different because we're not metric here:

* Oven is 400 F

* 1/2 lb butter

* scant cup blackstrap molasses

* 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp of both kinds of sugar, light brown and granulated sugar

* 3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

* 1/2 cup finely chopped crystalized ginger if you can't find stem ginger, but also add 1 tsp freshly grated ginger

I used a buttered, floured bundt pan and did not make the brandy apple sauce (this time!). In spite of the differences, it was a fairly easy recipe to put together. Enjoy!

Gah, glad to know I'm not alone in despising gum-smacking. In fairness, I can understand chewing gum--this was on the descent into Detroit on my flight from Burlington (VT). However, doing so loudly enough to be heard over airplane engines from across the aisle and intervening seat is a bit much. (Her seatmate gave me a long-suffering exasperated look as we circled in to land.) Then this person had the gall to shove out past her much put-upon seatmate once we'd landed, claiming to have a bad leg. (OK, so why didn't you get up and walk the aisle during the flight?) I'd already stood up and collected my belongings, as I (thought I) had a tight connection. Totally gave her the evil side eye, and scooched, apologetically to the people in the row in front of us, forward.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who has far less patience for irritating people since having been treated for cancer?

And yes: definitely good news about Bob! Be sure to tell him the ladies on the CrazyTown board told him not to "man" it out so much.

Unfortunately, I spoke too soon. Just talked to him during my rehearsal break. The tube's staying in for another night; even though he's feeling better the surgical team thinks that imaging shows his colon is too distended. So he still may need surgery to remove that part; hope they can do it without an ostomy. Will know more in the morning.

The cause is probably adhesions from the hemicolectomy he had two years ago after his colon was perforated during a colonoscopy. So that original GI doc is definitely never going back on our Christmas card list (he is definitely permanently on another kind of list, aka our “fecal scroll"j.
