Killing Us Softly: Becoming the Surviving Spouse of Cancer (Review)

Killing Us Softly: Becoming the Surviving Spouse of Cancer by Red Dwyer is something that I recently had the pleasure of reading. 

Red takes you through the first hand journey of becoming the surviving spouse when cancer hit family. She takes you through the diagnosis and the aftermath of losing a spouse while raising small children. 

Amazing first hand account
The book is highly intense and you feel the pain while you go through the lessons that were learned not through a classroom but with real life experience. Red takes you into her home and exposes a side of herself that is rarely seen giving readers a glimpse of how strong this highly qualified woman really is. 

Killing Us Softly is a must read for anyone that has ever been touched by or is facing a chronic illness. The message is simple, you are not alone. The writing is natural, and the advice given comes from knowing the reality.

Twenty Years of Lessons

The last twenty years have taught me things that I never learned in school. The lessons make me wonder what the big deal about finish this degree or that vocational program is. So what have I learned?

Starting Over. Again.

Life never goes the way we plan and that's okay. We just had a major change that I tried and tried to plan for only to have my plans fall apart every. single. time. It was when I stopped with the obsessive planning and pulling my hair out that it all came together. We're doing pretty good while we make the adjustment to home. Here's hoping that we'll be completely back on track soon.

Until next time, never listen to the voice that says you can't. Find the voice that says Fuck it I'm doing it.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.
