What it’s like to walk in my shoes

I really wanted to share my story for many reasons,

First I hope that my story can be one of inspiration and strength.

Second I want respect and empathy for my child and family.

I want people to know that what you see on the news is not always the true or entire story.

I am still on my cancer and grief journey and I have really felt alone at times with my grief, as if I am not entitled to my grief because of the situation.  I am trying to learn that I am worthy of acceptance and I wanted to tell my story in a controlled environment where my words cannot be twisted.

This is my story from my perspective and I hope not to be hurtful to anyone in the process.

I have really been struggling and hope that people will refrain from negative comments.  Thank you

  1. You will not get any negative comments here! 🙂

    by the way,
    I’m working on a book project that will cover 4 different aspects: 1) those who have benign tumors; 2) those still battling cancer; 3) those in remission; and 4) from perspective of caregivers.

    If you would like to write an article (novice writers are welcome) and be a contributing author, please let me know.. Also if you know of anyone else who would like to contribute, let them know of my project. Thanks a bunch.

    Be well.


  2. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!

    • Well thank you very much! I have to say most often I only get to blog on a Saturday or Sunday morning when my three year old is either napping or playing, by then I just sit down and type. I rarely know what I am going to blog about exactly it is just a form of emotional vomit from the week. Lol. I have found going on you tube and doing various “guided meditations” very helpful in quieting my mind and alleviating stress and anxiety. You might try a couple of those and then try to write afterwords to see if it is helpful. Good luck!


  3. It is so easy to put labels on people and blame them, it makes it so much easier to put people in neat little boxes and put them away. But you are a real person who was effected very deeply by a horrible tragedy in a very different way than others who were effected by the very same tragedy. You have another story to tell. One of the good times and the very good side of someone who made a mistake (as do we all) and has no real chance to take any of it back. That video you posted of the two of you… It really shows that your soul mate, your partner in life is as human as the rest of the human race. I truly hope for healing for you and everyone that has been involved in this tragedy. Peace to you.


  4. Seems like this blogging is a hugh step for you! And going forward too.
