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!

My New Blog Template.....

Well I am pretty excited about this new template that was created for me. It was well worth the investment ($85) for which I will get to write off on my taxes for next year. I hope one day that this blog will one day help buy me a farm for my Premarin rescue horses or a farm for my mom. Yes, big dreams!) I can't help but have them.

Now the banner at the top is very symbolic in that on the left is the Ovarian Cancer ribbon for which I hope in my lifetime we will one day find a cure for this deadly monster. On the right is the San Jose Sharks which symbolizes that I live in San Jose and that is my husbands very favorite hockey team. They are having a good year and have been so very exciting to watch! My husband and I are whole together and that's what this blog is all about. We take care good care of one another and teal is our color together!) His team and my monster!) A real power couple we are!)

What I really do like about the new design is the ease in being able to customize; adding banners, changing font, moving things around; instead of the usual one column on the side, I now have two in which to add things to either side of my blog. It's not screwed up anymore! I love it! I can now proudly bring it up on Internet Explorer once again! Wow! I just can't say enough about it!

Every once in a while I like to read other blogs (much more than the news). I've actually been avoiding the news lately because it's just too stressful. Sometimes I notice while watching; I get panic attacks when I hear about people being murdered, taking their lives because financial ruin, bad things for your health and so much more. It's just way too depressing and stressful so I've been avoiding it and feeling much better.

If it's bad news; I like to look for positive in it and just not just focus on the negative. There's much more to life that's going on than all the bad that is happening before us. Bad news may help sell things but I find that avoiding it has been very important to my own health.

To get back the blogs; they are a great way to escape those harsh realities; reading about others' lives and good things that are happening to them; their insight to the world. They may have their share of problems but many have unique ways of dealing with them.

I found Shauna's design banner on another blog that I was reading. The banner said enough so I clicked on it and I checked out her work; I was completely impressed enough that I ordered a good package price. I felt that my blog is worth it. Perhaps the troubles (errors in Internet Explorer) I have been having will finally stop. It finally did fix itself and it looks very cool!

Shauna Callagham worked with me and she took my idea and completely transformed my blog into exactly what I was picturing. I know that sounds kind of hard to believe but it really was amazing. She seems to be very creative and it took about a week turn around once I had placed the order and I know she's pretty busy. Well she's a mom and more power to her that she can stay at home with her kids and run her own business. I'm all for that!

Here is her contact information in case any of you are interested in a great blog design for your blog!)

Well, as for me living on with this disease; I feel this photo should say it all. I am doing OK and it's not stopping me at all. I went ice skating today with my husband and a good friend from work who snapped this photo. Excuse the big man coat that I was wearing. It had been raining really hard that morning and this was the coat I had grabbed and it also seemed to keep me warm here.

So yes, I did mention rain. We are considering a trip to Kirkwood Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe for another snowboarding trip together. It's still tentative as if is expected to be exceptionally crowded this weekend. Valentine's Day and President's Day Weekend. We will see. No matter what; we always end up having a blast together no matter what we do!)

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.
