Here you will find the rantings of a madwoman, or should I say a “mad-mother.”  I found out on the 4th of July, 2014 that my youngest daughter (31) had been diagnosed with a rare type of ovarian cancer.

I did what I had to do…  I lost my mind and started writing a blog.

The thoughts, feelings and fears I’ve experienced in the months following that diagnosis had to be released.  If they had been held inside any longer, I would have surely explode.

In the months following her treatment and recovery, I found reason to “rant” about anything and everything.  So you will also see miscellaneous, non-ovarian cancer related  postings about things and thoughts that captured my eye or my imagination.

Please feel free to enter this space, where I will try to explain what it feels like to have your guts ripped out, thrown on the floor and stomped on, along with some other mysteries of my life.

Warning:  If you know me at all,  you know that one of my most favourite words is the “F” word,  please be forewarned, that “it” may (along with other choice words) find their way into my posts rather frequently.

If you are easily offended, please do not enter.
