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!

Never Say Never....Dealing with a cold

It's always funny how we press our luck. I know this because I am always knocking on doors walls, desks what ever when I press my luck by saying I haven't had that or had to do that or what ever;Especially a cold that has been going around. You talk to others who just got over it or are still going through the miseries of the cold and you think wow I'm glad my system is strong enough to fight off that cold!

Well that plastic that I knocked on didn't exactly work this time around as I sit at home unable to get a moment's peace from the coughing, yacking, sneezing, nose blowing, "I'm too hot!", "I'm too cold!", all those horrible feel like crap moments all experienced this morning and most of yesterday. I thought this morning I was surely over the cold and could go in this morning to work, but then the steam from the shower got my coughing started and I could barely call my boss without coughing. I drank a glass of water and hurried with what ever I had to say so that I wouldn't be coughing into the phone.

I still feel quite horrible for even going in to work yesterday. I just hope that no one suffers from my lack of consideration for getting some work done that someone else could have easily done for me. That's just my hard hardheadedness and dedication to my job but it's also selfishness to not consider the health of others. Granted I did wash my hands through out the morning and wiping everything that I touched with antibacterial wipes, I coughed into a napkin and if not I washed my hands, then washing my hands again and again all awhile hoping that with all that effort, no one else gets as sick as I am.

But the cool thing is that I can take it like a grain of salt and relax another day. It's a day of peace to sleep in my bed, take cough medicine, get knocked out and sleep, watch worthless TV or go across the street and catch up on my movies or bring the laptop to bed and catch on some research. Oh, not to worry there are plenty of things to do here that don't require me to get out of bed!

The important thing to always remember when you are sick is to take care of yourself and to not get others sick. You have to question, how important are my tasks to be done if coming in might endanger others to miss work? So I am glad to have called in today!

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.
