Good day

No new agnostics showed up and I a not sure how I could find what they had written.  This is all very complicated for me and I hope to master it so I can exchange with fellow non believers.  Went to the local atheist meeting last night and dropped off my site information in hopes that some other non-believers will find this site and add some information.

I am having a good day so far with minimum pain and maximum optimism.  I see my therapists for the first time since the final decision was made so I hope I can pick up some "path to serenity" ideas from him.

Still looking for some ideas from agnostics on  how to handle dealing with dying and avoiding the supernatural.

My first blog

This is my first attempt to write a blog.  As you may have read on the main page, I have esophageal cancer that could not be helped with surgery.   I underwent a six weeks session of chemo therapy and radiation in March in preparation for an esophagealectomy.  But during surgery they discovered that the cancer was in the stomach and could not complete the planned surgery.  So I was closed up and sent home to die.

I am on tube feeding each night so I am well nourished.  I cannot take in sufficient food by mouth to sustain myself.

I have searched the net for information  and inspiration from agnostics, but I have yet to find a site that is not heavy on the religious side with multiple references to the after life.  If there are any atheists or agnostics that would like to share with me I would be delighted to hear from you.

My grand children are here and I must go spend some time with them.
