Dad died about 20 yrs ago, banjo. He got an extra 8 yrs out of his treatments, though.
Sorry to hear it mate. 20 years ago was a bad time. I know this because anti nausea medication has come a long way. Your father must have felt terribly sick.

A nurse told me of that time, "Our biggest issue was vomit control."

Although dreadfully ill, I managed to avoid the nausea.

I am doing okay. I was originally given 8 weeks. Still here. Still refusing to let go.

Don't worry about appearing confused. We have enough members from Melbourne to know how to deal with that.
Hmmm...i'll let that one pass through to the keeper, but just so you know Thwoth, I cast a dark glance in your direction.

Welcome Banjo, hope you enjoy the forum.

Hi Banjo,

Welcome. Based on your intro, I'm pretty sure you'll find this forum a welcome change from the "assimilated" sites you're escaping from.

They also have meet ups in and near the CBD, which may be closer for you, depending on how "inner" in the inner west you are.

Details here.
