However, the light at the end of the tunnel for such a diagnosis is that it is entirely treatable. From a variety of anti-cancer drugs that attack tumor growth to the well-known treatment of chemotherapy, there are numerous things that can be done to take the offensive on such a diagnosis. But, there is one problem that is a side effect of the aggressive treatment to rid your body of the cancer – your body gets substantially weaker as it is fight off the cancer infection.

Being weaker means that if you enjoyed playing basketball on Sundays with the guys or running a marathon each month, well, that is no longer going to be possible while you are undergoing treatment. So, what do you do now for fun, right? Well, instead of thinking that your days of mindless enjoyment are coming to a close while your body heals from the cancer infection, why not start thinking outside the box.

For instance, if you have always enjoyed group activities, then why not try looking for something a bit more relaxing that can be done in a group. A good example of such a thing is getting together with friends for a card night each week. And do not be ashamed to request that they all come to you instead of making you go to one of their homes for the fun festivities. No one will mind having to travel to you for the fun. In fact, they will just be glad that you are still alive.

You can also do some of the same activities that you used to enjoy outside in a more virtual setting. Let’s take the basketball games as an example. Keep up that Sunday games routine with a video game console and the latest basketball video game. In fact, you can even play most of these games with other players – either with friends of yours or with strangers from around the world. In order to play the video games in real time against other people who are not in the same room as you does require a few additional items. Fortunately, you can shop for these items online and have them sent right to your door so that you do not have to leave the house!

If you do not already have one, then you need to get a high speed internet connection setup at home. You will need this to get online and play against the other people. You will also want to do a quick search online for the best 5.1 gaming headset models that fit your budget. You can usually find some good ones for under $50 and this will allow you to hear and talk to the other players while you are playing against them in real time game play.

Now all you have to do is sit back and play those games with the other players. You get to have fun, no matter how weak and tired you happen to feel from the treatment, and you never even have to leave the comfort of your couch at home!
