Don’t listen to Tumor Rumors.

Read the Current Update

tumblr_nxyscfxvRI1rj50pjo1_1280-274274313-1503699024343.pngAs may of your already know I was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. First I want to thank so many of you for your support to me as I move forward. It has taken a toll on me but I have managed to joke about it here and there, but I must say it has also changed me in many ways.

 

Things once important, to perhaps even most important have become the things of little thought these days. I mean things like bills money, my house and many other things the we typically see as very important.

 

I also am finding it difficult to be cynical about the world in general which I just about always am. I have not found fault with many people at all. I find myself far more empathetic toward people and wanting to help them more than I normally would. Even some who perhaps might have deserved a little drama, I abstain from it. (I will say as I was writing this very paragraph a bully to the entire ADHD community named Grant Crowell tried to start up with me about something I posted that he did not like and admittedly it was my pleasure to spank his little ass like the child he has become.) but for the most part I have been and am mostly passive

 

Many of you have been awaiting an update and I can now give you the most current update I have. The doctors met today to discuss my case and decided that surgery is the best way to go. The bad news is they do not believe they will be able to get it all. My surgery is scheduled for the 19th of september so we will be leaving on the 18th.

 

It is not known if the tumor is cancerous and I don’t know if there will be any procedure that will follow the surgery, be it chemo or radiation. Whatever they decide I will be more than happy to go through. I am not ready to die. There are things I want to do and things I want to achieve. I feel I have at least one or two more books in me. I know of at least two people who are interested in getting podcasts up and running. I would like to help them. There people who reach out to me asking my advice in regard to themselves or their children who need my encouragement. I want to be there for them.

 

After my surgery I am going to be out of work for a month. I don’t plan to lie in bed pleasuring myself while I play video games. (ya know not the whole time) There are two new books I have ideas for and one of which wich be co written by my wife Yvonne. She has been a godsend to me through all of this and I could not possibly imagine how she could do anymore than she already has.

 

Other minor health issues have also surfaced with me as a result of all of the tests I have been through. I plan to start eating right and exercising and I am a little excited to see the benefits that will result from this.

 

I am still very scared about the coming days and I look forward to being out of the woods with all of that. I spoke at length with Rick Green yesterday and he explained to me that sometimes when bad things happen, more good things happen as a result. I am already seeing this, and going forward, this is what I plan to look for.This is what I plan to find.

Im Tom Nardone and you’re welcome.

Help me. I can only spread so much bullshit by myself.

I am Afraid, but I am not finished. (not even Close)

20643825_1618999434779869_1792135321_nI am really scared. I do have a great family who loves me and a superb network of friends. My fear stems from losing my words. My words are the very thing that elevated me from the person i once was and ever wish to be again, to the person everyone knows me as today.

It was my words i used in my blog that put me on the map in the ADHD community. It was my words i used to tell my story about growing up adhd and connected with so many of you. It is my words i use every day at home depot to tell and to teach others how to solve there problems in their homes. I believe i would rather lose my site than the ability to speak, This is what i am most afraid of.

Yesterday while peeing i had this overwhelming guilt about not getting anything done. I felt guilt about the condition of my room and about the condition of the house.

As I finished peeing I felt a strange throbbing at my upper gums and the right side of my head. I remarked out loud to myself “What the hell is going on here” only those were not the words that came out. I was scary knowing what I wanted to say but not having the ability to say them. I had some difficulty breathing and i got really scared. I thought about all the people i need to say things to and how awful it would be to be trapped in my own body without the ability to tell people of my appreciation for having read my book or my blog.

I thought about all the people who needed me to tell them how to fix their homes. People who depended on me to tell them how to fix the things in there house.

The truth is I believe Iam Tom Nardone because of my words and my ability to use them when they are needed or wanted. I think about the person I am without them and wonder how will i manage.

Over the last 5 years I have amassed many followers and I truly love each and every one of you. One of which who comes to mind is Cassandra Hovi . she is not a master of the english language and I depend on google translate to correspond with her in sweden. She is very important to me just like all of you..

Whatever it takes to get better I will do and Yvonne will make sure of that. I don’t believe this is the end but the beginning. Perhaps i will do as many do and find some new lease on life. Perhaps i will be more open to things i was once closed, or perhaps I will care more about things i once dismissed.

I don’t generally like change but perhaps it is time to re-invent myself and examine what is my purpose for being here. Entertainment has always been the purpose of my being but maybe there is something else I want to do. I don’t know but i am excited to explore these things. I will be back. don’t worry. I have manny more things to say. I am still in love with the sound of my own voice and plan to use it as long as i can

Thank you to everyone who has commented on my initial post last night. I cannot bring myself to read them yet. I will when I can and i will answer them all.
I love and cherish everyone of ou from the bottom of my heart and soul. I will keep you posted. Perhaps tonight on a Zoom meeting.

Im Tom Nardone and Your Welcome.
