Well, I am unwell today, I was taking the time to rewrite some of the stuff I have put together for a book I am writing for an actual publisher, yeah I am as shocked as you!
I thought I would just put out into the world my part of my introduction to the thing for people to have a nosey at 🙂
Smart people make mistakes, right? Sometimes the smartest people in the world can bring the worst ideas to the table! This book is just another example of that exact thing! Smart people making mistakes, by no means am I saying I am smart, but I sure do know how to make mistakes!
This is my version of events, past, present and hopefully future if I make it. This is an ode to how I feel, a no rhyme or reason rant about the world I live in, how I feel about having terminal cancer and how I feel I should react or deal with this problem. I think the word I was looking for there was coping, how do I cope and how do I see others are coping with the situation.
Your thinking DAN! Why have you called this Casually Dressed & Fresh to Death? Well, I am sat here writing this while casually dressed and oh I am so fresh to death! I am positively smashtastic! Living the dream, living the life of a rockstar! Living the life of a celebrity with no status!
By no status I mean I am none of the above! I am just me! Casually dressed and fresh to death, I am so fresh my breath is minty by nature! Ice cold minty breathness!
Ok, so I am not a celebrity, I am not anyone of status but I am someone who has been through a hell of a lot and have learnt a hell of a lot and I thought I might as well share that experience with everyone I can, also as there is a high chance I will end up dead I wanted to share my perspective on this horrific card that nature dealt me.
The horror of cancer is truly worse than anything you see in your standard slasher movie, at least they tend to die quick in those things, I am just here waiting for the end that may never happen, I may be able to fix myself and stay alive for years yet, then what the hell do I do? It’s crazy that the life throws these weird cards at you, but you obviously learn from it all, it’s a true trial by fire.
Now, life is hard, but it wasn’t always that way at some points it was actually really easy, some what a breeze, I had everything I could have wanted, a bit of a playboy lifestyle, drank champagne and lived and loved life. Now I spend my life trying to help others as much as I can, trying to help them understand and cope with the worst of adversity.
