Thank you for the Support!

I have to say I am so glad that I blogged it out (as my friend Jess calls it). Upset would not properly describe how I felt yesterday after receiving the email I shared with you. I got so upset that I actually had a flare up and was in terrible pain last night. The worst pain I have had in 6 months.

I hesitated to blog about it then I heard Jess's voice in my head "Blog it out" so thats what I did and wow did it help. I needed to hear from my bloggy friends because I was so angry, confused and insulted by Darryl's email. I felt personally attacked and I guess I was! So thank you my friends for setting me straight and helping me get over this little incident quickly.

Its not easy being a voice, I know this. However, knowing its not easy does not then make it easy. This is something I will have to face many times over if I want to continue sharing my cancer journey. Hopefully I will get better at dealing with those who chose to see me as an enemy or a person who is trying to generate fear. Your help gives me the strength to brush it off and keep moving forward, THANK YOU!

Don't forget to get into this weeks giveaway and this months!

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. Keep up the good work. If everything has two sides, then there certainly needs to be a YOU to counter the Darryl. :)

Hey Meaghan, I clearly recall the one time that I felt personally attacked because of the HPV "stigma". I posted a happy little song on my blog called "I'm Not a Virgin Anymore" by Poe LOL

I never claimed to be an angel, but nobody deserves to go up against such a beast of a disease!

You rock MEAGHAN!
I have a great shop on ( where I am selling adorable upcycled headwraps and I hope you will help me pass along the info! I recently had a customer who is going through chemo purchase one of these headwraps from my shop to wear during her treatment as a unique and stylish alternative to a baseball cap! It gave me the great idea to start marketing these 100% recycled fabric wraps as a stylish, feel good alternative for women and children going through chemo to help them feel good about themselves!
Both my maternal grandmother and my husband's mother passed away very young after losing their battles to breast cancer, and both of our families have a long history of breast cancer battles behind us. I decided I wanted to do something to make a difference in the lives of other wonderful women and children who are surviving!
All sales of upcycled headwraps and headscarves in my shop will have a portion of the proceeds donated to cancer research and support!
If you know of a great woman or girl who is looking for something to help them look and feel beautiful during chemo, come stop by my shop and consider one of these wraps as a holiday gift!

Two sides to every story and journey is healthy. It's not healthy to drag someone over the coals because your ideas and views differ. Daryl doesn't play fair!

I'm so sorry you had to deal with the jerk. Hope "Blog Therapy" has helped a little and I'm glad you're feeling better about the whole incident!

I'm in tears reading about your pain. {{{HUGS}}} This man is judgemental and narrowminded, as I said in the other post. I don't know how he sleeps at night.
