the C word…

…sucks! Cancer that is… Normally I am pretty positive about it, don’t let it get me down too much, but this past week it has been really eating at me. Today is the 1 year anniversary of my diagnosis.

dealing.

I just want to say thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers from family, friends AND even strangers. I feel very blessed to have a group of people like you all surrounding me. As for me, I am doing okay. Still a little shell-shocked. I went back to work yesterday, I needed something […]

medical mystery

So apparently I am a medical mystery. This whole ordeal goes back about a month and who knows how much longer it will continue. There will be some possibly TMI stuff so beware. December 14th – A trip to the doctor because my PCOS has been going haywire and I am REALLY tired of having […]
