I haven’t told many people that my situation has, in a way, stayed the same and in a way has the potential of becoming this thing that’s on the precipice of being, yet again, bat shit crazy. So to stave off the bat shit crazy, last October I convinced my oncologist to allow me to get Lanreotide […]Read More Butt Darts and the Ensuing Craptastic
Sorry to be all “high school essay paper-y” on you but I feel I should put the Merriam-Webster Dicitionary’s definition of my current state right now: over·whelm verb \ˌō-vər-ˈhwelm, –ˈwelm\ : to affect (someone) very strongly : to cause (someone) to have too many things to deal with : to defeat (someone or something) completely transitive verb […]Read More So Over My Whelm…
“You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.” – Bob Marley It’s been a little over six weeks since my total hysterectomy. Since being released from the hospital I felt like crap, went to the ER three days after being released from USC Keck Hospital with breathing problems […]Read More Strength is a Myth
I’ve been quiet lately. Hardly posting on Facebook or Instagram. Some of you have noticed. Others haven’t. But for you who have asked what’s been going on and haven’t received an answer and for you who have gotten only half the story, this post is for you. I apologize ahead of time. This will be […]Read More And the Hits Just Keep On Coming (or Why I’ve Been in a Hole for 3 Months)

Yes, it’s been a while. A long while. Six months (approximately). But there have been reasons as to why it’s taken me a while to write again. Aside from the recovery from surgery, learning how to live post surgery and how to live this life of ambiguity due to my particular type of cancer, bonding […]Read More Moving.
Another short but sweet. I’m wicked tired and have to be up in a few hours. In about 7 hours, I’ll be in surgery. Yeesh… surgery. I’ve had a couple. Laser eye surgery. C-Section. A Lumpectomy. But this one… wowzers. I’m, as you all already know, scared shitless. But I’ve gotten so much votes of […]Read More Surgery. The scariest 7 letter word I know.
This will be short and sweet. I know you ALL want to know I vomited. Yes, I did. And you would think, “Hey, she’s got cancer… why wouldn’t she vomit?”, right? Actually, I have not vomited in a very long time. Not even when I was pregnant. I did not have morning sickness and therefore […]Read More Nausea and The Big V
Aw crap… do I need to pay Warner Brothers Cartoons for the use of that phrase? Oh well… Sorry it’s taken me a while to post this next blog. Typing has become a touch difficult lately so it takes a little longer than usual for me to type. That and also dealing with an infant […]Read More What’s Up Doc?

Does anyone remember that game, Life (otherwise referred to as “The Game of Life”)? I used to love it. I actually still do. I even downloaded it onto my iTouch years ago.
