Hi everyone, my name is Jeff. I'm 32 year-old male and found out last week after a trip to the ER and a MRI that the brain tumor I developed in 2006 has grown. In fact it grown so much that it grew form one side of the brain to the other. I could not get an appointment right away with my oncologist so thats why I had to go to the ER. I pretty much new something was up because my left side of my body was acting up (less movement) I have had so many brain tumors since 1984 this pretty much makes the 7th or 8th one if you count the ones that would die and grow back. I currently live in Topeka, KS and there are no brain tumor support groups in my area that I found so I'm going to try this. I do not know anyone who has a brain tumor and I feel so alone and depressed all the time. There are times where I feel like giving up and wish I would just die and other times where I want to fight. I have family and friends who can listen, but that is about it, no one who can understand what I'm going through. I just started Temodar on Monday the 15th and I not sure about it yet. I seem so tired all the time and I have no energy and Im not sure if it is the mediation or the tumor. Im half way through the first treatment I have Thursday (today) and Friday and that is it for the month. Im not really sure what else to tell you about me. I am pretty shy and have a hard time talking about myself so I not sure what else to say, but if anyone has any questions for me please feel free and ask. I can answer questions better than give information.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
