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!

Left Handed...Who else is?

So far my weekend is going along OK. I was too tired from having to work 5 days this week. Granted it was 3 hours short of 40 hours; but I was literally exhausted. I can't push myself too much or hospital time anyone? No I don't think so.

I always get amazing about how my husband and I are soul mates with out a doubt. We match each other quite well and have so many similarities. Our astrological signs have always indicated that a Gemini just isn't compatible with a Sagittarius and that we are way too flighty. I'm the fresh air that gives his fire life and his fire warms my heart. That's exactly how I look at it. yes, we are sappy!)

Yes, I'm the key definition of flighty; most Geminis are flighty and they also tend to change their minds a thousand times before they have made it up in the last couple of seconds. I will not deny myself that; my mind is always going a thousands of miles an hour.

WARNING: This post might be a bit political for those of you who are sensitive to politics.

I'm always so passionate about animals and doing the right thing; treating others how I would like to be treated. What can I say? I do love myself as a person especially since being diagnosed with this monster of a disease. I feel that I am a much better person because of it; not that I wasn't before I got diagnosed; but now my priorities in life are so much different.

For now, it's really hard for me to plan anything too far in the future because my health is so uncontrollable and very unpredictable. I mostly live for right now and I try so hard to do the right things at the moment that I am experiencing them even though sometimes my chemo brain can fog up. I want to be the best person I can be because dog gone it feels good to be! I couldn't live with myself if I were greedy and so concerned about making tons of money to buy myself things. See, I could never take those things with me while I am gone; so what's the point?

The whole thing with socialism has come up. I come to ask; Am I a socialist? That's been a question I have been asking myself a lot lately. IWell mostly because Jesus himself was more or less a socialist in that he felt we have to help each other and be there for one another in times of need. We should all strive to be that way.

I for one don't believe much in greed. I feel that being greedy is wrong. I've been having a huge problem with it when I hear of how much many CEOs & high level executives get in salary. How can someone live off of so much money (or even need that much money) when there are so many others living with out? I know I couldn't. I would see the need to secure the future of the company and to pay and offer more to employees for their efforts.

It seems that so many people act like sharing is such a bad thing; I can't help but share myself and what I have with those around me who I feel deserve it. I don't believe in just giving away money without someone working for it or giving back in return. Money is one thing, but other things such as food, goods, services, or actions such as helping others is another thing. Money can only do so much; what is it without the rest of us and what we do? If you get a handout; do something for it that will benefit society or who ever gave it to you in the first place.
What comes around, goes around? I guess it got me thinking since I just watched "Old Yeller" with my neighbor's daughter and seeing how a family could live off the land and hardly any money.

I feel that I work really hard like so many of us do; I don't make much but there are those that make much, much more than I do and they don't work as long or as hard. Physical labor should be worth more and it just isn't; too many people are getting taken advantage of and I hope this stops soon.
I just feel that everyone time and effort is worth something. OK I am got a bit off the subject of what I wanted to blog about; see told you that my mind moves a thousand miles an hour or so it seems!)

Another thing my husband and I have in common is that we are both left handed. I had one other serious boyfriend when I was very young who was also left handed (father of my angel son). I wasn't as close to him as I am with my husband of course; but I was so young then. I also notice that many of my favorite actors and actresses are also left handed. When my husband and I are watching a movie we do notice those things. It makes me feel good to see another fellow left handed person!)

Here are all the famous people that I have noticed:
Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagon, Paul McCartney, Robert Redford, Oprah Winfrey, Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn, Julia Roberts, Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Ben Stiller, Robert Deniro, Dennis Quaid, Mickey Rourke, Jerry Seinfeld, Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Michael Landon, Shirley MacLaine, Richard Dreyfus, Christian Slater, Rip Torn, Dick Van Dyke, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Steve McQueen, Whoopi Goldberg, Dan Aykroid, Matt Dillon, Richard Pryor, Keanu Reeves, Fran Drescher, Lisa Kudrow and I know there are a bunch more that are.

This also proves that my husband and I watch lots of movies together. We get our quality time together. Movies do have a way of making us feel better even though the news can leave many of us depressed and hopeless. I wish we had "Good News" station because we would be sure to watch.

According to Wikipedia, about 90-93% of the whole population is right handed. There appears to be a lot of negative information about left handed people in that they are more prone to mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. Its also more common in twins and children with autism, downs syndrome, and mental retardation. What about chemo brain? Just kidding. Hello we are not dumb "wikipedia"!

Finally towards the bottom of the page there is one person who did a study on Intelligence and left handed people in that their brains are structured differently in that it widens their abilities and in turn many are often higher achievers. Anyway, I have always felt that left handedness allows us to use the right side of our brains where creativity flows. I am certain that I am creative; maybe suffering from chemo brain at times but in all I do my best!)

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.
