    Still Want Ot Live

     I have breast cancer, metastatic, so terminal. I thought about what it is like to be dying.....Are people afraid of dying? I don't feel that I am afraid, but I am very sad, sad to leave this life without the experience of watching my children who are 8 and 6 grow up, not...

    Been Told

    I've decided that I want to live so much that I am willing to do the things I do to live. I've decided that despite what others think of me... which sometimes isn't much.

    This world is not a blessing.

    It's not a miracle to wake up every day and know you're still alive. It's actually a curse. A curse to know you must go on, because there's not a damn thing you can do about it. Of course you can take the easy way out. There are many options. Just do it and get it over with. But...

    Unforgiven

    I have asked God to forgive me. He has answered my prayers. Why is it I can not forgive myself. If only God's forgiveness would wipe away memories that are forever unforgiving.

    Stuck....

    I can't tell you the number of times I have been told to get a life.  It's a stupid expression if you ask me.  But a life is exactly what I need. For almost 20 years I hid -isolated myself -because of obesity and now that I am no longer obese I want to be out in...

    I'm Getting Old and Still Wanna Be a Star..

    I love stealing song lines to use as my titles :)  I have and have had so many dreams, I feel as if there's little chance of them coming true anymore.  I'm sure some dreams that I have still have a chance.  At the same time the biggest of them I'm afraid I'll have...
