Fun Fact of the Day

Fun Fact of the Day: There are 5 types of white blood cells. Monocytes help break down bacteria in our bodies. They have the longest life span of the group. Lymphocytes create the antibodies that destroy the harmful viruses and bacteria that infiltrate our bodies. Neutrophils are the most populous of the group. They are the first line of defense when it comes to infections. They slaughter and consume the fungi and bacteria. Basophils are the Paul Revere of the group. They are the “alarm sounders”. They expel chemicals to help control our immune response. Last you have Eosinophils which kill cancer cells.

Quote of the Day

For so long, the mainstays of cancer treatment have been chemotherapy and radiation. They’re toxic and primitive. We need to look at it in a rational way and say, how can we help the body heal itself?

Quote of the Day

When you have cancer, it’s like you enter a new time zone: the Cancer Zone. Everything in the Tropic of Cancer revolves around your health or your sickness. I didn’t want my whole life to revolve around cancer. Life came first; cancer came second.
Regina Brett

To write or not to write?

Write.

Just feel like putting a few thoughts to paper. Plus I took a morphine pill and I always come up with a few crazy ideas while I’m on medication.

I just want to start by saying Thank You to everyone who is starting to enjoy the blog. It is no where anything I really want it to be, but you have to sweat, bleed, and cry sometimes to see improvements. Please stick around and by all means, HELP ME OUT!!!!!

Let me know what you want. I am here as an outlet. What I post is to raise awareness to issues close to my heart. I would love to expand my heart to some of your issues. Hell, they may already even be there, you may just have to remind me it’s in there somewhere.

As I mentioned I have cancer, testicular cancer. It’s not as bad as some cancers, but it’s still cancer. It keeps me up at night, it keeps the infected area in pain, and it scares the fuck out of me.

I was diagnosed in both testicles, but opted to only have one removed and am trying to cure it naturally. So far, so good. The last sonogram I had, the numbers increased and decreased, so the doctor told me it was probably just a misread. Fuck you, asshole.

I don’t have another sonogram until March, because of some things I have in place with the doctor, but I don’t want to hear probably. And today, the oncologist’s office called me and told me they had to reschedule my next CAT scan to March. Fuck you, asshole.

Anyway, how does any of this pertain to writing, well, it’s what’s really spurred me to sustainability and marijuana. Two major industries I would like to apply my skill sets to. Solar, wind, permaculture, and natural remedies are being subjected to lies and misinformation, and I would like to help with the change. Because lets admit it, it’s going to happen.

We are slowly going to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels, I just believe it’s my duty to help sooner and hopefully help speed up the process.

Thank you all again for the support and please don’t shy away from putting me in my place. I actually like a well thought out, heated debate.

Happy writing everyone.
