I'm very sorry about the last post...

Because I was so was a sloppy post.

I left out reason #2A that I was very proud of and forgot to include it in the list.


  1. Dear Nic -

    There are people out here whom you haven't met but for whatever reason have stumbled across your blog. I am one of those people.

    I am inspired by the rational way you have taken control of your treatment. Richard Feynman once said that if you can't explain something to a reasonably intelligent 10-year-old, you don't understand it. This is true for medicine as much as anything else. By understanding your illness and directing your treatment, you are helping to get the best possible care. Remember, there is NO ONE else who cares about your case as much as you do. It is also clear that you are as smart as any of your doctors (and in some cases, much smarter). Don't ever forget that.

    At the same time that I admire your rationality, I also sense your passion and poetry. I am thrilled to see that you have ended up with a doctor who obviously is passionate about his work, and sometimes not entirely logical. He surrenders himself to his instincts occasionally, as I suspect you do. It has been said that nothing significant in this world can be accomplished without passion, so we shouldn't discount that, even in the hyper rational world of medicine.

    I just want to let you know that I think of you every morning and watch your progress every day.

    I wish you the best of luck. Perhaps we will meet someday.

  2. Whomever you are...thank you. Very much,
