Ovarian Cancer... In Honor Of All The Brave Women Around The World♡
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Day 3082-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

Another beautiful sunrise here in the country as young Handsome and his deer sibling Juliet wait for me to feed them corn, seed and sliced gala apples.

What can I say... I like to spoil all of the wildlife including Handsome and Juliet who prefer gala apples over green apples... hehehehehehe!

As I laid resting on the couch early this morning looking over Radiology reports and other notes from my specialists... I've come to realize there are so many Brave women all around the world that are battling ovarian cancer. Then this video dedicated to all survivors was born.





You my brave warriors are never alone.

What Not To Do By Interferring In Family Issues That Are None Of Your Business... PRIVATE JUVENILE COURT FILES BEING SHARED ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
Mood:  sharp
Now Playing: Day 3079-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

This is just one of many ways to really cause problems... some serious problems by interfering in family issues that do not pertain to you by making a mere mockery on social media of my spouse, his young son and his grandparents for everyone to see. There is a reason why juvenile court files are considered the most highly protected files in the court system. There is a reason for that as clearly these screenshots sent to us by mutual friends and high school friends whom one is an attorney are literally riveting over right now.


These screenshots were sent to us by those who sent Eric the necessary steps to have this finally end by those who want this to end. We had to legally white out private confidential information per advised by the mutual friend, attorney since this does involve a minor.


This right here is what literally makes me sick more than anything in this world.


This is only one of many reasons... A fraction of the reasons why with the help of medical professionals and a family attorney. I made a decision to permanently remove myself from all immediate family in every way, shape and form. This is not healthy. This is also not healthy for myself nor my spouse when needing to be at the hospital early tomorrow morning. 

This right here... Is a bully by all means and by all opinions of those whom are very concerned and asking when it is going to stop. 


 When this individual takes it upon themselves to interfere in issues, private family issues between a father, a mother, their young son and grandparents that does not involve you nor give you the right to slander and make a mockery of all involved parties on public social media... You in turn are not a resolution to almost a decade old problem of family issues by any means, way, shape or form. You are in turn creating only further problems for all involved parties and in turn making yourself look nothing like a decent human being but instead a mere troublemaker not just to your wife, but everyone, that includes everyone's families you are involving by posting public social media comments regarding a very HIGHLY PROTECTED PRIVATE JUVENILE court case.

Troublemaker... Is putting it lightly.  

When you continue to intervene in family issues that are not of your business. You in turn are doing nothing but making more problems for your mother and father in law. That in turn is detrimenal to them ever having a relationship with their daughter. You are the problem. Not the solution.

This is what is wrong with family. Right here. Just when the water is calm... Strangers/Individuals like this enjoy being nothing but a mere bully and in the opinions of many... A mere troublemaker and overstepping boundaries of a very private, closed file juvenile court case.

As I sit here disappointed in all that would partake in such a very sad private matter that will only affect this young boy involved later in life. I am beyond disappointed. But sometimes you just have to pray for those like this individual and let God handle it and others like this whom cause nothing but problems. 


Or as my Grandmama used to say, "Ignore the bigmouth. All he is... is a damn fool."


What a shame. A very sad shame as we forward this screenshot and emails to the appropriate parties. That involves all parties involved in this private juvenile court case.

Thanks to this individual whom did nothing but cause further stress for me and my spouse the day before needing to be at the hospital so I can proceed ahead with necessary medical measures so I can continue fighting. Something that one day you too will be in my shoes. We can only hope that when that day comes... you can reflect back on how horribly you treated myself and my spouse. I hope you also take some time out to do some long awaited self-reflection on how to be a better person. Ask the good Lord for forgiveness. 


In the end when you continue causing one further physical and emotional stress... it's called, liability with ones health.

Remember that as my Grandmama would call him, " Big Mouth and Damn Fool"... because we will.

We may have a mountain of medical bills, but sometimes you have to apply financial means to what is most important to your overall health... a really good attorney.

That Same Authentic Self Still Remains~
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Day 3076-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining



It's been awhile... what actually feels like quite awhile since writing on this blog... minus repeating what's been happening on our new website.


"Our Crazy Little Life"



Thanks to everyone for all of your continued support and patience as we are hopeful to make a full transition by the end of this summer.


There has been so many changes that have kept us busy in our crazy little life. Some good... some not so good as we anxiously await a letter/document that should arrive in the mail by sometime next week. It's unfortunate when family never took the time to really understand the ups and downs that have happened in our life over the past several years. I can only be honest to a certain point without having to constantly repeat myself... but when those who refuse to listen and then take it upon themselves to continue not to listen or at least understand all of the struggles and many hardships we have endured over the past several years. Well... trust me by saying with more than enough experience, "You can expect some not-so-happy changes to come about... some sooner... some later."

Myself and Eric fully expect far bigger doors to close permanently within our lives. This is what happens when you assume and expect others... especially your own family... to understand your journey. What we have both learned over the past several years is that no one is ever going to understand what you are going through unless they too are walking in your shoes. As a stepmother... I have learned quite a lot over the past several years. I have also with the help of a professional made decisions in the best interest of my stepchild. I stand firm in saying that I have absolutely zero regrets in making sure to protect the best interests at heart with that stepchild. Although... I can not change the course of actions from those who never truly understood our journey nor cared to listen to the reasons for protecting my stepchild by keeping them with their grandparents while undergoing oncology treatments, surgeries, endless procedures, new residential structural problems and far-too-much family conflict.

My decisions were not made solely alone. They were made with the help of a professional... a child psychologist whom also agreed with me in making sure the stepchild did not have to be a part of years of highly combative, unhealthy family conflict nor watch me endure oncology treatments, surgical procedures and other changes within life that go along with long term illness. What we needed was time to get back to a much more stable... happier life for my stepchild. But with time comes those whom feel they have privileges that overstep the boundaries of even biological birth parents. I was told that I was a "Nobody as a Stepparent." That my opinions meant nothing. I even spent years reaching out to my stepchild only to recently find out that the grandparents never told the stepchild nor about anything we sent in the mail. My spouse was very upset and rightfully so but this is what happens when what used to be family... refuses to listen nor accept struggles within your own journey.

Disheartening would be an understatement. Yet... I do not regret doing what was best for my stepchild in order to make sure they were sheltered from anything but living a happy healthy life. If I am to be damned forever for doing such a thing. Then so be it as any good parent, stepparent or biological parent should do which is to look out for the best interest of a child.

The long awaited letter in the mail... depending on the outcome will forever change our life, my life as a stepparent. Another change that we are awaiting and the impact it will instantly bring to our life. When my grandmother, my last grandparent passed away a few years ago. Family had kept not just my spouse, but my stepchild from attending the funeral which was a God given right taken away by family. It would then by my last and final funeral myself and my spouse have both decided to ever attend. I had to leave that funeral of my grandmother far too early and not by choice. The hurt alone of not allowing my spouse and stepchild to be present by a few in attendance was far too much for me to fathom, whether alone to be in the same funeral home room with the family members. Out of respect for my grandmother, after she made it clear to me months prior of her passing, to not attend her funeral because of the conflict within family and not wanting me to endure any further stress. She made it clear to myself and Eric that we were far better off without the fools in our lives. I haven't forgotten what those family members took away from me, my spouse and my stepchild. The right and privilege of being present with my spouse and stepchild at my own grandmothers funeral. Nor will I ever forget. The same way I felt while being blatantly disrespected by my own uncle as he firmly reached out and grabbed my arm twice in front of my grandmother laying in rest. "HEY YOU! COME HERE!" Clearly not the right place nor showed any type of respect as a niece who isn't a child anymore. It not only shocked me, but beyond embarrassed me. After that... I made the right decision to leave.


It was the last funeral of any family myself and my spouse will ever attend.


But with time and far too much experience... both good and bad comes wisdom and life experiences to share with so many others.

I have spent far too many years being silenced and threatened by family in not allowing myself to be the true, authentic me. Not being allowed to have feelings nor any expression of emotions. What a hellish and most definitely a very unhealthy way to live for far too many years as it took a tremendous toll on my health.

Through some of the most difficult trials and tribulations.. that same authentic strong self has finally reemerged stronger than ever before!


We look forward in continuing to share our story in hopes of inspiring others around the world because you too are never alone.


Never allow anyone to silence you.

Never allow anyone to burn that bright beautiful light within.

Now Playing: Day 3073-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


Boy oh BOY! 


The comments have been flying regarding these public screenshots sent to us of what should be an example for everyone to never post anything remotely close on any public social media website. If you want to make comments... which we all can regarding anyone because it's called the freedom of speech. Make sure to do so offline or make sure your social media accounts are set on private or make sure just to not say anything at all that may steer others in the wrong direction and then screenshots are flying all over cyber world. 

And never threaten... whether alone "publicly threaten" anyone on any social media public site. 


Comments such as... "Unprofessional" and "Ratchet" have been just a few sent over... however... if someone likes a website and wants to share the website...well... it is the United States of America and we all have the right to freedom of speech.


Posting such a really unprofessional comment is not only in poor taste... but when you don't do damage control and so many others disagree with as they state an, "Unprofessional and "Ratchet comment"... I think clearly this should speak to everyone to keep comments like this off of social media for the public to see and then judge very sternly.

As for my wife... personally seeing this screenshot sent by a few of those in the cheer industry, my wife's highschool mutual acquaintances and her own cousin was the most disturbing of them all. It's one thing to not like me or my website while for some reason these individuals continue to stalk myself and my wife's Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign website... but to literally make fun of my wife, your sibling and aunt... who has been continuing to do their best to keep a float speaks so much more than, "Unprofessional" and "Ratchet."

I am a Deputy for the Sheriff's department. I also was the one to come up with ideas for a way to help my wife gain a temporary work permit working from home so we can continue medical treatments, any ongoing surgical procedures and prescription drug costs. My wife can only work from home after first being approved by her treating specialists. Make sure you sit down with a disability attorney so you can get your facts straight first before making far-fetched discriminating comments that I take personally against my wife and others who are disabled. As far as not being educated on those who still want to wake up and live day-to-day while hoping to be cured while on disability... some specialists do medically term it as, "Terminal." Per my wife's own treating specialists, "You must still find hobbies to keep your spirits up." This was told to us not just by one of my wife's treating specialists, but many. For my wife's sibling to laugh and make fun of her wanting to partake in something that makes her laugh and smile is in my opinion, no sibling by any means. Laughing and poking fun of my wife's condition, laughing at medical terms of anyone, "Terminal" is downright bullying in the mind of many.

You claim on the attached screenshot of your public social media post... comments about myself and my website;

"I'm sure the jail immates would love to see what the jail guard does on his freetime." 

As I am sure all those who serve or work in the business of cheer, as well paying clients, love to see how you treat my wife/your sibling and poke fun of those who are deemed disabled... regardless of their disability.

As far as finally addressing the elephant in the room... figure of speech... of any niece that my wife told me would call and speak to her while going through a pregnancy and life's trials and tribulations...  my wife always being there for the niece. Only in turn to slander my wife on public social media. Make sure to let others know that you have not included my wife for many years, almost a decade to many important life events. That includes my wife's right to have gotten to know your child or children. Making the decision to omit my wife in your important life events is yes... your decision... but please make sure to post the facts first that you have disappeared by your own choice for almost a decade out of my wife's life. As far as the niece who contacted my wife's website that is meant for those looking for information regarding Gastroparesis... not a place where the niece clearly used as otherwise. Why do you continue stalking my wife's website and my website? If you claim as clearly you claimed on the websites comment section that is under privacy for security reasons such as what you personally wrote... IP address came from your personal device... that you do not consider myself nor my wife your family. Then do yourself a favor and don't save, download or click on my wife's Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign website link nor my website located on this webpage. It's really just as easy as that. As far as the skits that I choose to do on my website. That is up to my discretion as everyone knows... they are character skits. You may want to look up comedy to understand character skits.

To the other individual in the screenshot that myself and my wife do not know. Thank you for your service. I am an Army veteran of 17 years and yes... I have balls.


Tomorrow is our anniversary and I would like to comment that these screenshots show the reasons why my wife is the bravest person that I know as she always somehow continues to laugh and smile. Any sibling to laugh and make fun of their sibling who they know went through radiation therapy and other oncology treatments is no sibling in any right frame of mind. For any sibling or nieces and nephews that would post such really disheartening and disturbing comments towards their own aunt or sibling who is still battling cancer is far from any decent human being. For any nieces or nephews to poke fun of their aunt speaks volumes. For any sibling that appears by opinions of others by possible having an affair with any ex-spouse by continuing to contact them is something that is unthinkable. When my wife has a distant cousin causing further problems by sending public screenshots of conversations online and offline among these individuals... then maybe you shouldn't have your cousin on your public social media websites or your phone contact list.

Remember at the end of the day. I was there for my wife during all of her treatments, including other experimental treatments and far too many surgeries. Even making the decision to cancel a most recent surgery. Where were all of you? My wife's parents were not present during those radiation and other oncology treatments, that includes those within her own immediate family. They claim that they did not know where the radiation treatments were taking place. Yet, the photos on my wife's own personal online blog said otherwise as well my wife was being treated by the same radiation oncologist as her father. The facts are the facts. I was there for my wife's fathers surgery for his own cancer diagnosis. There was no one there for my wife nor myself while waiting in a very quiet, quite sombering oncology treatment waiting area. That also includes my own parents who were fully aware of my wife's treatments. Not one time did they call my wife to ask how she was doing nor bother to even send her a card. Instead friends made up for what family lacked... support. Actions do speak louder than words. So do the facts. Sad facts.

To those who have voiced very strong opinions on what was wrote... All I can say is don't let folks like this get to you because at the end of the day... even these individuals should have woken up with a few Snickers.
