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!

6 years ago today.....Our Wedding Anniversary

I got a good night's rest and was able to return back to work. I didn't get an email from HR so I assumed that my doctor had in fact faxed the note so I didn't worry. Starting back to work after 3 and half months was just like starting a new job but it came back to me in bits and pieces. I got to greet so many co-workers that have worked with me over the 6 and a half years I have been with the company. So many hugs and conversations and of course inspiration. It's good to be to back.

My husband came to have lunch with me since today is our 6 year wedding anniversary. We were married 6 years ago on a beautiful December Day on the Pacific Ocean. It was the most beautiful wedding my father has ever been to; I do know that. Our love still gets stronger each and every year we are together. It's a gift to wake up next to each other each day. I think its our love for one another that keeps me surviving this very deadly disease six years later.

Anyway back to our lunch, we went over to Red Robin's which I'm not too fond of, but just seeing him in the middle of the day was the highlight of my day. We sat there got our order taken and the lady next to us got her order take right after us. Fifteen minutes later her food was ready, she ate her food and requested the check after she was finishing up her food (twenty minutes later).

We kept wondering if our order was forgotten about but mostly had good conversations about the concert he gone to the night before. (he always tells me the most fascinating stories and his artistic ability to tell a story which is all the more reason that I love him so!). The woman next to us then pays for her bill and walks out. Ten minutes after she has left, the waiter brings over my soup (French Onion without Cheese) and my husband's hamburger. The waiter apologized for the long wait but blamed it on a large party that had put in the order at the same time as us. I knew right away that our food had been ready for a while and had probably been sitting there ready all the time from the temperature of my soup. We were both starving that we really didn't care too much until my husband started feeling sick from his hamburger being pink inside and cold. My soup really was luke warm. My husband was like "let's just send it back", but I was afraid of someone spitting in my soup so I just ate my soup anyway. His burger was kind of cold and pink inside, but he too was starving. I tried to eat one of his french fries and it tasted like it was once warm but was getting cold. We finally had to get the manager over and they comped our meal, but I doubt I will ever go back there again. That was the third time that had happened to me at that restaurant. Done with Red Robin.

I went back to work and it really was a good day to be back. I really missed my co-workers and didn't really realize the impact I had had on many of them. One co-worker even gave me her gorgeous vest (this shows the love here as we work to invent treatments that prolong lives). They love you enough to give you the shirts off their backs. You can't ask for better than that!)

I got home from work around 6pm and my husband and I went over to Santana Row and ate at Rosie McCann's Irish Pub and Restaurant. The ambiance and the music was excellent and we had an awesome waiter who was on top of everything. I order
the Grilled Coriander Wild Salmon, Baby spinach, garlic mashed potatoes, jalapeno aioli, and Guinness gravy. I got a glass of Vintage Pinot Noir. What an awesome evening! We even ordered dessert for which the waiter threw in since my husband's steak was more done than he would have liked. Here's to dozen's more years together!

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.
