Here you will find the rantings of a madwoman.
This Blog was born on the 4th of July, 2014 when I found out 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.
The thoughts, feelings and fears experienced in the weeks and months following that diagnosis had to be released. If they had been held inside, I would have surely explode.
In the months following her treatment, surgery and recovery I found reason to “rant” about anything and everything. So here you will also find miscellaneous, non-ovarian cancer related posts about things and thoughts that captured my eye or my imagination, along the way.
Three years after my daughter’s “series of unfortunate events,” I was diagnosed with, not one, but two autoimmune diseases. My world was once again turned upside down and I started writing again, in earnest. “Better out than in,” my Mom used to say.
So how you ended up here I do not know… but 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 addressing some of the other mysteries of my weird and wonderful life.
