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!

My 2nd Chemo Treatment and more!

I just woke up from a huge nap after being konked out from the Benadryl for which I have take just prior to my infusion. This helps keep me from getting a serious allergic reaction to the chemo. I had the mistake of a chemo treatment made during lunch which meant I got to sick in my chemo chair an extra hour and a half. When I initially arrived for my 12:15pm chemo treatment both check in windows were closed so I helped myself and walked right through the door to find someone who could check me and get that chemo started.

A very nice woman helped check me in and found me a chemo chair to sit in right across from 2 other cancer patients. A half hour later I got my IV and it took 2 hours to get my actual chemo drug (everyone was at lunch). I tried to take a picture of my hairy legs but yes, my camera is very shitty as await the real deal (Nikon D80 - Back ordered since May 1st, 2008) from Razz Photo Camera. Every time I do call about the camera they say the exact same thing each time - "6 more weeks".

You can tell my camera is pretty crappy because not one of my long black hairs on my legs even showed on even 1 photo of 9, and this is the very best? It's almost as if I photoshopped all the hair on legs to make them look smooth. Well, I went into photoshop and drew in the hairs that didn't really show up. Wow! Looks like a sign on my legs! I wonder if it means anything?

Finally at 3pm, the IV for the chemo drug was empty. It didn't beep, but I made it clear to anyone that walked by, that I was ready to home.

My husband came and picked me up and took me home where I crashed and burned.

What Did I DO for Labor Day?

I had a good friend stop by with her boyfriend and one of his friends on their motorycycles (Harleys). We went on a bike ride attempting to ride up Highway 9 up towards Santa Cruz on some curvy fun roads. She took a photo of me riding with my husband which I hope to post soon (as soon as I get the photos). We had some fun despite 5 minutes down the road, we noticed our friends were not behind us. We stopped and waited for about 5 minutes and then we turned around to check on them. Sure enough further down the road, one of the older custom bikes had a broken clutch cable.

My husband utilized his 2006 Dyna Street Bob flashers on that dangerous curvy road which made me nervous as some more inexperienced drivers flew past us. We had one really nice biker stop by to try to help us, but then me and my husband called a friend to see if he had a tool to make a temporary fix since most bike shops are closed on Monday's particularly Labor Day. We rode on our little adventure to go get a clutch cable for a bike that would need a custom long one at least 18" hangers. We rode over to his friends house to use a cable intended for a trike. I put the cable in my jacket around my neck. Sounds scary huh? It was fun, we got the part, they were able to fix and then we went home. The important thing is we got to get out and spend a good quality day together which what really counts. We made some good memories!

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.
