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!

Bodies in Motion stay in motion...

Despite several painful days I am finally starting to feel somewhat normal again. The pain has subsided some; but I've been keeping myself busy each day and getting more rest. I have been off chemo for approximately 3 days including today and am stoked that I am just starting to feel a little more NORML. I plan to cherish these kind of days where the pain is minimal. I will have to start the Etoposide on Tuesday, Nov. 11th and will continue to enjoy every day that I am off chemo. (I try my best to enjoy the days I am on chemo as well;)

Yoga is very important for me in relaxing and stretching my body every day. I try my best to practice in the morning about 1/2 hour after my Ensure breakfast drink and an hour and a half before bed. It may be for 10 -20 minutes per session. I know it's been helping so far. Another way, to help my body heal is to walk my dog or my cat. I always feel better if I exercise at least once a day. Here is a video of me walking my cat which I video taped today with my new camera that my dad sent me recently. I'm so grateful! This camera is so much fun!

I hope Tonto's effort in walking on his leash as least made you chuckle just a little; I know he certainly made me and continues to!

I took Miss Blue Belle 2 days in a row to go run and play with her boyfriend Jagger another Blue Merle Sheltie. Here they are resting. They rest, they run, they drink water together, run some more and then rest again, over and over again. She was a little jealous of the other girl that Jagger likes to run with, Sophie a three year old Golden Retriever.

I have been having loads of fun taking photos with my new camera. Here are a few winners. I took Miss Blue Belle after she had been worn out playing with Jagger over to have a romantic picnic lunch with my hubby. I picked up some sandwiches and drinks at a Safeway and we had lunch by a beautiful lake. After lunch, we walked around the lake and looked for various subjects for photos. Here are a few excellent photos of snapping turtles and a few birds.

My husband and I walked on the beautiful trail together holding hands and cherishing the beautiful time together. I felt warmness in my heart and when I close my eyes, I can think about how warm and comforting his hands feel in mine = wow another great meditation!

Meditation for today: #714 "Earth Energy: collect a handful of pebbles in your hand and lightly play with them. Feel their smoothness and listen to the sound they make as they click against each other. Imagine the earth they have been lying in for so many years. Tap into the vast powers that created our Planet".

Perhaps with the addition of these meditations that I am trying out, they can also benefit you! I just want to express my love for all of my readers! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I'm surviving this disease in order to give you hope and inspiration to look at the positive things in your life. No one likes complainers now do we?

For those of you worrying about the future and disappointed about the election. I do know that there are some of you who are. It does no good to stress about it. We must move on! We can only do our best in this lifetime!)

Have you seen the book "Walk Your Cat: The complete guide"? Your cat looks a bit like the one on the cover.

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.
