Country Roads.. West Virginia

This morning was too much.  Woke to birds singing, sunny skies, and a Starbucks coffee and fresh bagels on the counter of the kitchen, our names carefully placed with a sticky note on each container in the order of the list we had left on the counter the night before.  It's just to much .....

Long distance love..

Have you ever gone out with someone from across the state? Or what about in a different country altogether? My love and I are spending 6 weeks apart. That’s 42 sleeps. Which includes one of us travelling 17,000 kms away, to France and the UK. It doesn’t seem like much really, in the overall timetable […]... Continue Reading →

You’d think I’d go for the oncologist first, but it’s not that easy for me. I’ve got other medical issues that have caused my body to go haywire besides the tumor. Since the tumor appears to be dead now, it’s going to have to wait its turn.

Given that I have no thyroid function, I kinda need the meds to like live and stuff. I’ve only got 30 days of meds left, so I set out to find an endocrinologist first. Last week, I…
