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 new type of wealth....

Well despite this horrible economic crisis we face, you can just look around you and notice the wealth that you already posses. No not the stocks that have tanked or the money lost in 401K, your family, your health, your right now.

Money isn't everything, but I am now able to get my medicine and even some organically grown greens and veggies for free. I have a friend who will grow some plants for me and other patients as well who also need the medicine and of course a neighbor who will supply fresh organic veggies in exchange for my my worm tea from my composter to feed the plants.

I was able to trade in my fat clothes for some skinny clothes from a good friend of mine so now I have new wardrobe for returning back to work in 1 week.

I think I can now be about bartering for now and saving as much money as possible. I am also beading and making necklaces to trade for other home necessities as well. This may very well be like the Great Depression. Our ancestors survived that and I too have faced similar hard times when I was small child in the 70's. My father had lost his job soon after he had moved us several states away; we didn't have much money for food, but we survived anyway even from gathering food in dumpsters behind grocery stores, or from the kind neighbors and friends, trading, and also living on a farm with a milk cow and chickens. We learned so much how be more self sufficient and to not waste more than we take. It's not pleasant to experience poverty being that we had to do what we had to do to survive, but in life it is about accomplishing just what you have to do to get by.


Well do please forgive me for some of the ads displaying on this blog. Its just a small way to help my impoverished mother in SC. Some of the money raised on my blog helps my mother to pay small bills as she struggles to keep her mill job from moving to China. It's just starting to happen and I am working on a new resume for her being 62 years old and having to face the job market. This is a just a small way for now that I can help her.

It certainly does no good to worry about things like money or paying bills. Those will always be there, but your loved ones are what really needs to be cherished right now. We can't always guarantee that we will always be there but we can at least try to.


Last night, my stomach swelled up in pain from another intestinal blockage. It could be the popcorn I shared with my husband during the game on Thursday night or a number of things.

I had gone out to eat with some friends both during lunch and dinner. I couldn't eat too much because of the pain but it got worse through out the night. I took a Benadryl and that konked me out but today I kept getting the feeling that someone had just kicked me in the stomach. It nearly took my breath away so I utilized my faithful Vaporizer and a couple of bong rips. I coughed and coughed and coughed, but finally the pain had been reduced to nearly nothing. Finally, I just couldn't get enough to drink, so I did my prune juice, Miralax and White tea mixture. Hopefully my intestine will untangle itself on its own but for now at least I have medicine for pain relief and a quality of life. Yes, it frustrates me so when the reality sinks in that I can't really eat like normal people.

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.
