What’s More Depressing Than Watching the Titanic? Watching While Newly Diagnosed With Cancer…True Story

I think life can be divided in parts.

B.K. Before Kids A.K. After Kids…

For me, it’s B.C. Before Cancer and A.D. After Da tumor!

In 1998 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I was 22, just married…nearly buried…

To celebrate I went to see Titanic; nothing more uplifting than to watch a boat sink.

But to be honest, I only cried twice; the day I was diagnosed and the other when I discovered I was Stage IV…AKA “end of the line”

My hair was supposed to fall out…it didn’t.

I was supposed to be nauseous…I wasn’t.

I was supposed to lose weight…sadly no.

Chemo-Sabe? My sense of tumor got me through.

The experience has made me stronger.

ŸI hate wasting time.

ŸI don’t think everything needs to be SO serious and…

Ÿ I seek balance in all that I do.

With this blog I hope to inspire until you perspire. I hope that my observations on mind, body, and spirit sync with yours.

In all honesty, I want to make you learn, laugh and love.
