I've been there, 2004 stage 3 rectal cancer with lymph nodes involved. Surgery and six months of chemo and radiation cleaned it up. So there is hope. This last year at this time, I had surgery to cleanup damage the radiation had done. This year I am feeling better than I have in years. I'ts a hard road  but can be done.
I have been gone a long time from here. Life has taken a new turn for me, one I was not expecting. On November 20th My husband was diagnosed with aggressive high grade stage 4 bladder cancer. I didn't see that one coming. He...

This post has been born from the dark childhood stories you shared with me in the comments on the previous post, so it's a kind of an addition to it, on shedding all that filth and coming into your own power.
To have power you have to believe you can have it, and for that you have to know you're worth it, and for that you have to love yourself. The amount of self-love is proportionate to what we harness in childhood. How much have we been given, how much have we retained, how much of it was beaten out of us by parents, well-meaning strangers, institutions.

Story
Tagline
Pacific Northwest native gone south, retired computer systems engineer who is happiest in the mountains
Introduction
A Pacific Northwest native where I grew-up on a horse ranch.  Spent most of my life in Seattle where I attended and worked for the University of Washington and later the wireless communication industry.  Like most folks from the Northwest, I have a connection to the Earth and like to get outdoors as much as possible, to recharge that spiritual connection.  In 2003, I was diagnosed with cancer and did not heal well from the treatment which lead to an early retirement.  I am now living in Georgia so that I might watch my grand-kids grow and write my memoirs, real and imaginary.
Education
  • University of Washington
