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 Lesson for all of us...Listen to the Future...

A friend of mine from High School and also on Facebook sent me this compelling video of a child who really is ahead in her years of wisdom. She tells it like it is "Stop being greedy and think about the future". I think this all the time and am trying in my own little ways of recycling, riding my bike, composting waste in my house, conserving water, changing out my light bulbs and whatever I can do.

Each day is a new day to try something else and to make important choices which can affect the future. If we can all work together and make our own effort, maybe we can achieve these dreams. We don't need to waste more than we use. That's how we got in trouble in the first place. You can't take all those valuables with you when you die. Really what is most important and what are our priorities in life?


I also got to speak with my chemo oncologist / doctor about not wanting to continue this treatment. He asked if I could give it another chance so that we could see a true trend (if the CA125 (tumor marker which measures the Ovarian Cancer Protein) rises or falls. We need a pattern. Right now we have two. If it goes up 4 points then this called doubling and is a significant factor if this continues and then becomes an 8, then 16 and so on. Cancer patterns usually double at any rate if the cancer is growing. We will see and prayers are being said that the next CA125 will be lower. This is what I have been told in this whole fight and understanding the results of my blood counts.

I have to go pick up my chemo (horse pills=Etoposide) tonight or tomorrow. I have a blood test on Monday and Chemo (intravenous= Avastin) on Tuesday. Oh boy and then I start work on December 2nd.

Phrase to meditate on: "For those whom are always courteous and respectful of elders, four things increase: life, beauty, happiness and strength."
The Buddha

That is an incrediable young lady!
Years beyond her age in wisdom.
I have to wonder if she got through to anyone in the room or did it fall on deaf ears.
I often wonder when we will stop the distruction of our earth and all that call it home.

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.
