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!

Just another 6 year survivor= today marks the day...

Well I survived another year with this horrible deadly disease and I plan to survive many more. Sadly most women diagnosed with this disease and this late stage in the game, don't get to survive quite this long, so feeling blessed is definitely an understatement for me when I was originally given 8 months to 2 years maximum on November 15th, 2002.

Today, my husband and I celebrated by bringing Miss Blue Belle with us to Ocean Beach and to hang with a very, very cool friend of mine. Here are just a few photos of our lovely day together. The day was incredibly relaxing and it was unusually warm for November in SF.

As we walked the distance on the beach, absorbing the warmth, Blue Belle got to explore and make a few friends along the way. Here she is engaged in a romp with a little Chihuahua mix. The two raced around chasing each other around. We laughed a few times as they created a little race track through the wet sand.

We also had a small dinner at a little sidewalk cafe and had some beers. I normally don't drink more than 1 but being that today was a celebration, I decided to break my rule and had 3. That's the most I have had in a long time. We tried to play pool but I have a serious pool playing disability. I can make snowboards do what I want them to do but some reason, pool sticks are something else. It's just a lot bigger than a pen or pencil for me and that was exactly how awkward it was for me to try to play pool. We laughed most of the evening and just enjoyed good conversations and getting to know what a warm hearted friend I now have. Its great to know good people in my life and then to find out they are even more cool than I could ever give them credit for is reason enough to celebrate this wonderful day. You must be surrounded in your life with more positive people and pets!

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.
