I really enjoyed this blog post about taking control of your destiny by learning to be aware of when the sirens(your thoughts/desires) are tempting you with songs that drown out your truth. “It takes courage to admit a weakness. It takes throwing out the lies of your experience to see the Truth. And it takes […]


“Not In The Pink” by Tina Martel “Although I am no Snow White I am living with the seven chemo dwarves. Itchy, Weepy, Weary, Drippy, Achy, Queasy, Bitchy. They bring a friend, Wimpy.” -Tina Martel Are you looking for a book about dealing with cancer that isn’t bent toward the heroic, and cheerful? As an […]


Are you ready to heal? You must answer YES for any of my guidance to help. If you aren’t ready and willing to end your depression the following advice and resources won’t help.
