I'm Venting

Okay. So, am I a loser? So, I didn't beat breast cancer. I'm not one of the great ones - the survivors - the heros: one of the folks that people uphold as champions, as winners, as the best. Okay. 25% or 30% of women go on to develop metastatic disease. We are a reality. We exist. I didn't beat breast cancer. I am shouting! I DIDN'T BEAT BREAST CANCER! I have developed metastatic breast cancer. Am I a loser?

Oh my, oh my, oh my. I'm so tired . . . . .


  1. Yes, we are the reality, we exist..I know how you feel xx

  2. The only losers are people who do not live life well. You "live" each day and give hope and joy and energy to all those who know and love you and to those of us who are distant aquaintances.

    I volunteer in Palliative Care and I do not see losers. I see the true champions, the true heroes, the true winners. Those are the people who continue to LIVE in spite of the real loser....the cancer or whatever disease.

    You should allow yourself you down days, your tired days, your days of venting. Shout, scream, cry!! Then LIVE! Live as you have been doing. Live well. You are a winner!!!

  3. I admire you! I love the fact that you are living your life to the fullest...your music, your friends, your family....you're doing what many people are not...you are enjoying your time here on earth.
    You are a strong lady....
    Take care

  4. Thank God for venting...it's one way to realize and to release.

    And...everyone within this galaxy and the next infinity knows who you are lady...Goddess, Warrior Woman, Singer of Soul, Tender LOVING HEART and as mentioned in the comments above, LIVING life to the fullest.

    Let it out, let it out, let it out...and when you want to...reach out, reach out, reach out.

    And of course, this is just me stopping by to say, I love you!
