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!

Chemo today and postponing returning to work....

I had to post this photo of Miss Blue Belle sporting her Ovarian Cancer awareness bandanna.

I just got an email from my job wanting to know if I would in fact be returning to work on the 22nd. It seemed doubtful that I would feel good enough to return back to work as I read the email. I have to admit that I was in a feeling of depression at the time, because I really do miss my friends at work.

I should at least finish this round and another prior to returning to work. I just need more time to heal and to go through more chemo. No stressing, just healing. It was a hard decision to make because I was looking forward to being back at work and being around my friends. I had my intravenous chemo today as I had started the Etoposide just last night.

My chemo doctor found a large mass in my intestine today and we will be getting a CAT scan to find out what it is and what is causing these abdominal blockages. The size of this mass is about the size of a grapefruit. It could just be waste this is stuck in my intestine, but what ever it is, it feels like a rock and my oncologist is concerned enough. We might be able to rid myself of the knot through drugs or surgery. We just don't know right now.

I went home shortly after chemo and crashed for the rest of the day.

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.
