WARNING: Some of the Content here may be Objectionable to some. I have this blog labeled as "Adult Only" as a common courtesy for those who may easily be offended by Adult topics such as the Truth, Down to Earth topics, realities of living with Ovarian Cancer and/or any life threatening disease that goes along with it; Sexuality, Medicinal Cannabis, Profanity, and of course plenty of unpleasant body functions are also discussed here. This is a very tough battle for which I don't intend to hold anything back on what I am facing.

This blog is very personal and comes from the heart of a real fighting cancer patient who wishes nothing more than to live for all of those I love my own will to live, and my love of life. While sometimes I might be on heavy medication (prescribed by my doctor) and occasionally I might write about things or subjects that one may never even think about or consider; so please consider that as well. Yes; whacked out things might even be found here; but I mean everything in all good intentions.

This blog is not at all intended for the faint hearted, those who lack a sense of humor, have no idea what down to earth means, greedy mean people, and/or those who don't know how to share the world with others, and especially those who are unable to easily put themselves into the shoes of others. This blog is mostly about my journey of living my life in the best ways that I can under the Golden Rule and appreciating all of the GOOD KHARMA that comes my way! Never take anything in this world for granted; especially family and friends!

Be Happy for What you Have...

So many people get bummed about the smallest things. They fret about the reactions of others, being lonely, late on bills, being broke before payday arrives, and so much more. Each day should be treasured and reflected upon another day of having your health and for having the freedom to drive around or even walk around.

I used to be bummed out over the little things in life and now more than ever, I am happy when I have a day where I can sit at a stop light (even the longest ones) or even the worst of traffic rather than being hooked to an IV pole in a hospital not knowing if I will ever be out of that hospital alive. So many people out there have it worse off than you do and they can still smile and be happy for what they do have. I once knew of this courageous woman a few years ago in my Cancer support group who for some unknown reason could laugh at things around her; she had the most uplifting voice and such a beaming personality and yet she had a colostomy bag and ileostomy bag for her urine. She would laugh about the whole process of having to clean the bag or being out in public when it would overfill and not be able to find a bathroom to change it. Imagine if those were your worries? She would have the whole room in tears but from laughter telling of her hillarius experiences. Sometimes it would overflow onto her garments, but she would never stress out about it. To her, it was just another experience in life to be thankful for. She had her grandkids and her children whom she was so thankful to be able to experience just being around. They made her smile everyday that she was alive. She lived another 5 more months, but those extra few months meant so much to her. Her husband told all of us that she was smiling when she passed.You may have financial worries, maybe a few health worries, social worries, stints of bad luck or so on, but these things always have a way of turning around; think of those experiences as tests that are put out there to make you stronger.

Do look ever look around you? Maybe you don't see much, but it is wealth to someone else who doesn’t have it. Hell, I am just happy when I have a day that I can drive, walk outside, and enjoy good Indian food, Thai food, sushi or what ever, even going to the bathroom normally. Those to me are blessings. Everyday is a good day especially when I can wake up next to the one I love; the true blessing in my life! Yes, I am married and happily at that. I wouldn’t be alive if it weren’t for him and the support he gives me and the support we give each other. I wouldn’t be around here to make others happy or to bring some sunshine in the world that really needs it. That’s how I look at it.

My husband and I are best friends and we put each other #1. If you still haven't found love or perhaps you have, just don’t go looking for her/him, she/he will find you. If you sign up for dating services online, just let it be. Your main purpose is to focus on the moment. How can I make this moment more enjoyable for me or the person next to me? When I found my love, I was doing something that I love when I first met my husband to be. I was having fun dancing in a night club and that may seem like the most unlikely place to find someone, but connection doesn’t discriminate. You can meet that connection anywhere where least expect it. You will know when you do!

My techniques and treatments work simply for me and may not produce the same results for others. Cancer is a very tricky disease in which it is very different in everyone it touches. No two cancers are the same just as we humans are not the same. What works for me may not work for others.

I love life and expect to live for as long as I can. I intend to use those treatments that do work for me which includes medicinal cannabis. I'm still alive with this disease over 7 years later because of this miracle plant and as long as I have my medicine available; I intend to survive many more years. I hope one day the Federal Government will eventually grow up and be led by true leaders who represent the people and not just coorporations; real people who live by the Golden Rule "treat others how you would want to be treated". I also hope the Government of the US can finally learn to admit that it has made a mortal mistake in making this life saving plant which is provided by GOD and does indeed have the ability to provide all of us with food, fuel, clothing, shelter, and medicine; a mistake that have made is that it is illegal. Yes, it was a mistake out of greed, ignorance, and racism that this miracle plant is illegal. This is a confirmed fact and we should all know and face it.

Cannabis is not at all harmful and in fact quite the opposite. Perhaps our economy can once again grow as it has in the turn of the century by making this life saving plant legal once again.
