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 very brief update...

Since my last post I have been faced with some abdominal pain in the lower region (closer to my pelvis). There is a large lump just above my pelvic bone and I've been wearing my girdle to work mostly for protection and support. It almost feels as if I am having a hurnea if I do not wear support. Yes, scary shit; at least I have been shitting!)

Here are some photos of my tummy. The area where the gut is hanging over the pants feels very sore as if I have a horrible burn and bruise just inside there. It hurts to get up out of bed or in a seated position; but it's just a temporary pain and nothing a little joint can't solve at night. There is actually a knot there (where it looks like fat drooping over the top of my pants) as big as my fist.

I sure wish it was fat instead of the scary shit that it more than likely is. I can get through this and since I am going quite regularly and I farted a few times today (Whewwww hoooooooo!) This photo is not me sucking in or out; it's just the way that I am right now. That scary tumor thingy hanging over my pants is pretty scary but I do hope and pray I get through this.

OK the cool thing is (a girdle!), Yoga, a joint, relaxation, good conversations with good family, friends, relaxing mellow music, petting Blue Belle, Tonto, and loving my husband, and so much more to get me by this little rough patch. I still have enough energy to enjoy 2 full days snowboarding at Kirkwood! I'm excited just thinking about it and of course the girdle will stay. I must enjoy those good days as much as I can no matter what! Be spontaneous and fun!)

My honey took me out on a date this evening and we went to my favorite organic, healthy, inexpensive restaurant in Campbell (Aqui) for their Thursday Special "Blacken Mahi, Mahi with mango salsa, mashed sweet potatoes, and a cilantro cole slaw! Now I have to fast for my scan tomorrow!

I got through 4 days in a row at work; only sleeping 6 hours one night and up all night long pooping the other 3!) Yes, the insomnia is quite bad but with a little hope I can get some sleep tonight prior to the big scan!

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.
