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!

Another Attempt to fix my pipes....

On Tuesday and Wednesday, my loving husband took the day off to take care of me. On Tuesday, we finally got to see an internist. Finally someone who could have sympathy for my screaming pipes. This doctor was right to the point, "I really need to take a poo!" That is my real problem; because of the multiple surgeries and sewing my colon and intestines together, there is scar tissue that tends to close up every year of so.

We can try to open it up and that's what we plan to do this week (we can NOT do it surgically). My doctor made a list of things for me to try to follow just so that I get to go number 2 quite often. Since most people have normal hard stool, he said that it would be best that I have soft or almost diarrhea and to go all day long. If you fall in the normal range, please consider yourself lucky. Imagine if you had to go through the shit I have to go through and I mean it quite literally.

I get to drink lots and lots of Miralax which kind of tastes like cigarette ash if you just have it with water. What I like to do is to pour a little bit of Blueberry, cranberry juice, or any juice (no sugar- just fruit sweetened), add the Miralax, then top off with water. Anyway, I have double my doses of Miralax, stop taking any laxatives or fiber since fiber cause bulk in the intestines where normal people (not me= never been normal).

Next the doctor suggested that I should refrain from eating any foods like salads, dairy, meat (which is not a problem - I will miss the cheeses!) I can eat soup, baby food, and PediaSure. I am not a big fan of PediaSure because it does have lots of sugars (which feed cancer).

I have been utilizing Whole Foods for the soups and Alive Ultra Shake. I really do miss eating food but just these couple of days I will need to live on the PediaSure and nothing with substance (no fiber!), just liquids. Its so hard to do because my tummy also growls when its hungry.

Then I also get to utilize lots of enemas and suppositories.! Oh boy! Sounds pleasant huh? That's just how much I love life and will go through all of this just because of the man I love and of course all the loving people around me. It really does make me feel good when I see that I touch others lives the way that I do. Those are the important things to me in life, it how we make each other feel and the impact we can make on each others lives.

Later that night, I watched Barack Obama's acceptance speech as I lay in a great deal of pain. I watched the entire speech with so much hope in my heart that the pain seemed to dissipate slowly. I cried at times in tears of hope and inspiration. This young man actually made me look forward to the future of our Country as we all work together to make improvements on all that has failed with 8 years of an Administration based on corrupt lies and no respect for the laws that govern our country. I pray that many Americans are smart enough to vote for what is obviously right for our Country. To read more, check out my blog Peaceful Liberal.

saw you on the ASA site - just wanted to check out your blog.

Ive got cancer (Lymphoma) and it was getting better after only 2 treatments but then it stopped shrinking! -- Bummber - the chemo I'm getting R-chop is not that bad - but I'm weak and I've got blood clot - so I can't work out and have to keep my legs up.

They tell me they are going to try a few more chemo sessions (don't you love that word "try" I know I do - gawds!)

and then radation - oh wonderful!

I hope some of this works as I've got a wonderful daughter and life really is great! (other then this cancer bummer) - I was just Dxed last April - or this april as it were few months ago - but seem to have gone down hill fast.

anyway just stopped by to say high and check out your blog - see you on the ASA site.

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.
