What myeloma teaches me

I have begun to record some of the things I learned as a result of living with multiple myeloma. You may find some of these lessons interesting — or have lessons of your own to share. Check out mine via http://www.billreimer.net/welcome/personal/reflections/what-myeloma-teaches-me.

    Hi Bill, thinking of you. How are you feeling?

      Hi Wayne, It’s nice to hear from you. I have settled into living with my “new body” – with its lower energy levels, neuropathy (lower legs and fingertips), and sluggish muscles. It’s a decent tradeoff for life! You can check out what we have been up to via our 2019 Retrospective posting on this site. How are you? Where are you? I hope you are doing well and have found a fulfilling place. Thanks for paying attention to my site. Best wishes, Bill

    You never cease to amaze me. Once a sociologist, always a keen observer. You always struck me as a courageous man, and reading your blog certainly confirms it. I wish you all the best.
    Bonne chance, cher ami

  3. Hi Bill, thinking about you. Sorry about my first replies, which were done somewhat quickly. Now I get it. Geez. Hang in there. Good to know that you’re well surrounded by a great family. Same message for Fran. Celiac disease is no laughing matter either. To quote a line in a Tom Waits film, “that’s serious as cancer”, of which my Dad had during the last days of his life. What’s great to see is that you guys are using your research skills and the knowledge and spunk and energy of the family to do this Zumba dance that Fran seems to be fond of lately. I can imagine it must fun and hillarious for you to get a chance to see. You guys are a real inspiration. Happy Valentine’s Day by the way. If you guys are looking to see something funny, please watch a Sean Connery film called Zardoz. It’s so absurd, that it ends being hilarious exercise in laughology (Albert Nurenberg).
