Universe, can you hear me??

I’ve had enough. I’m ready to stop stealing the thunder. Okay?


It started with my own cancer diagnosis in 2011. And then continued with my relapse in 2012. That was enough.

And then Brad, my love, got his own, unthinkable diagnosis this past October. That was more than enough.

And then he died. 101 days later, on January 22, 2017. Leaving me, the Thunder Stealer, a 33 year old widow.

A 33 year old, cancer surviving, widow.

I’ve had enough, Universe. I don’t want to steal any more thunder. Just leave me alone. Please.

It’s fucking enough.


  1. If you have a minute, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at Emily’s Virtual Rocket. This is a serious newsblog which has been taken from e-newspapers and e-magazines from around the world, with an emphasis on transgender issues. Also, with his election, I look for articles which critique Donald Trump.

    I hope you enjoy this. Please paste the following:

    If you like it, please consider putting it among your favorite blogs. I would greatly appreciate it.
