Facts About Me: Life With Cancer

I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2002, one week before my 16th birthday. I underwent extreme chemotherapy treatment and a stem cell transplant in a trial research program. Now, due to side effects that weren’t known at the time, I have quite a few different disabilities and illnesses that creep up from time to time. I have to use some fancy gadgets at home, and I’ve got a boring old, regular wheelchair to get me where I want to go.

I get by as best as I can and don’t particularly consider myself ‘disabled’, though there are things I can’t do that really irritate me, because I used to be able to do them. I’m just happy for what I’ve got and try to get on with it.

The only real blessing it's given me is the freedom to spend all day, every day, following my passion - writing. Other than family and my reviewing hobby, there are no other commitments to take up my time, as I'm considered unfit to work. Which means that I get to write all. the. time.


After my treatment, I actually wrote a book about my experience as a teenager with cancer. It was posted on Wattpad after I completed it, then published with Write More Publications, but has since been unpublished due to Write More closing down. The book is still available to review, in its original (unedited) format, on Wattpad. I've been lucky enough to have some amazing readers, who comment to let me know how much my experiences help them cope with similar life struggles, and how my survival gives them hope, even for family members who are going through similar things.

You can read the book, An Unpredictable Life, for free on Wattpad right here: https://www.wattpad.com/story/9749942-an-unpredictable-life

Review: A Day In The Life Of Marlon Bundo
A Day In The Life Of Marlon Bundo - Jill Twiss,Marlon Bundo,Jim Parsons

Had to purchase he audiobook to tide me over until the physical books are back in stock.


As the bisexual mother of lesbian and pansexual daughters, and the sister-in-law of two lovely lesbians with three beautiful daughters, this was the best book I've read/listened to. As a human person who believes in tolerance, equality and that love is love, this is the best book I've read/listened to!

The narrators were perfect, as was the story. There was so much importance in how the animals all stood behind the bunnies who only wanted to love one another. And the best moment was when they all realized that they got to decide who their leader was, and voted the mean old stink bug out! Love and tolerance won in the end.

This book gives me hope that this will soon be the case in real life.

Boy's Life - Robert R. McCammon

I powered through this book, I tell you what. I kept waiting for small snippets of time to sneak in some listening, because I NEEDED to know what happens. Ugh. I need a physical copy of this book to hug. I loved every minute of it.


Someone should have told me not to listen to the end while I was getting ready for work this morning though. All the tears.

Ouroboros Symbolism and its Spiritual Meanings

 are the language of the Symbols can not be mentally comprehended.
To understand the power of symbols, we have to dig into an ancient wisdom of our myths and legends and try to comprehend the knowledge we receive from the sacred art.

Defining an Ouroboros as an ancient symbol of eternity, means nothing. It is like trying to connect any of the symbols to , Tao, un-explainable, un-measurable Life Force.

Sunny Day Here

Of course we are going to be getting rain and snow starting on Tuesday, so Mother Nature is just teasing us at this point. I finished a book this morning and hit two farmer's markets so that was fun. The first one was really good (got some great looking eggs and nitrate free bacon along with some homemade bread and hot jelly) and the second was more artisan than the first so I picked up some succulents that came in pretty glass bowls (going into two of my bathrooms) and some honey and strawberries.

Happy Reading!
