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!

A Gastro Internist?

Well today after having 3 dire episodes of extreme pain for 3 solid days, I called the advice nurse this morning to find out if I can see my Oncologist for a referral to a Gastro internist. Perhaps someone who could listen in on the loud sounds of my intestines churning every time my intestines even try to attempt to digest anything in my system.

I could actually feel and even hear the sounds of my insides which seemed to explode on my left side. I felt this air bubble grow larger and larger inside me, then some loud pipe sounding noises and then all of sudden a small explosion inside my body. It sounded like some dynamite went off inside me. I cried in pain and it really scared my husband just to hear all that noise coming from inside my body and then seeing me doubled up in pain. I continued to double up as the churning continued. Blue Belle just stayed right below me not sure of what she could do. She had a very puzzling look on her face but she could tell something was indeed wrong with me.

My husband and I both argued over my extreme hard hard-headedness that I should have tried to call the doctor while I was off for the day. It wasn't hurting so bad at first, I guess I just expected my system to get better and improve (call that my optimism). I think pretty positively.

Well today will be different than last night, I did call my oncologist and left a message for him and here I sit waiting to find out what can be done. Thankfully I am able to utilize cannabis legally in the state of California for the extreme pain I suffer with the help of my beloved vaporizer and it really does work to ease the pain because I have nothing else to utilize for pain. I can't take any Ibuprofen because it could possibly cause more harm than good since I am not eating and then take a pill (Ibuprophen) and I don't have any other medication for pain at all.

Here's to something that can be done and I can continue to heal! Perhaps I need a surgery and now would be a good time since I am off for 2 months to heal. This is just what I am thinking just prior to talking with my doctor. I am still very optimistic despite this onset of pain and I still manage to laugh at certain aspects of my life like the poo factor. It sure would be a blessing if I could only go poo somewhat normally. Ahh the simpler things in life!

WARNING: Just a small warning that my posts may not be as often as I would like to be. If several days pass-) It could just be that I'm in the hospital recovering as there is no internet connection. If after a week, then it might be obvious that I am recovering from a much needed abdominal surgery. It could be time for me to have one as it has been over 4 years since my last one. (4/2/04)

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.
