My Chihuahua, Piper and Cancer…wahhhhhhh!!!

My Chihuahua, Piper and Cancer…wahhhhhhh!!!

In October 2011, a vet diagnosed my Chihuahua Piper with lymphoma.  He gave her 4-6 weeks to live “at best”.  I was devastated but also very hopeful, as I never rely on someone else’s opinion if it doesn’t feel 100% right to me.

After much research online (due to my refusal to accept the Dr.’s grim prognosis), I found the most amazing holistic remedies that were either known to cure or prolong the lives of animals with cancer.   As a result, Pipes lived a happy vibrant life for 6 full months after her diagnoses, and passed in her sleep 5:05am this morning while lying in my arms.

I write this article today, not to bring knowledge of Pipes passing but INSTEAD to encourage others to

1) NEVER accept when someone (even a trained professional) tells you nothing can be done.

2) NEVER lose faith because someone (even a trained professional) tells you it’s not possible.

3) AND NEVER allow facts to dictate what your options are.  

There are many unexplained cures and remedies to help assist the process of many ailments, and or diseases.  I am not saying that these processes will result in a cure, but I am saying that if you BELIEVE, you have NOTHING to lose.

Each visit to the vet thereafter, my vet, after seeing my hopefulness, would always attempt to discourage me by saying, how it would only be a matter of time, and for everything I said I was doing to help her, he said I was “wasting my time”.  (What an a…)

Needless to say, I stopped going to that vet, but I often wondered how many other people would have left, losing hope and waiting for their animal to die.

So as I write this article, I am very sad to see my little pipes leave my side so soon, but I am SOOOOO THANKFUL FOR HER, and the amazing lesson which is…NEVER GIVE UP HOPE, REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS…(even if it’s a trained professional).

When to break up?

When to break up?

When to break up…?  I know.  When you are apart you miss them.  Then when you’re together, you are reminded of all the reasons you are secretly devising an exit strategy.

Don’t fret.  I know- you know the relationship is not great, and you beat yourself up for even staying in it.  But listen, somehow, someway the relationship has served you.  Whether it was the companionship when you needed it, or whether being with them allowed you to become really clear about the ideal qualities you want for your next partner.  Either way, lighten up.

Life is about exploring and learning about yourself.  Some times (even though we know better) it takes us a little longer to find the courage to make that change.  And guess what. That’s okay.  Don’t feel bad and stop feeling guilty.

You know you deserve better but this relationship has provided you with the  perfect foundation to prepare you for your future much improved, new relationship. Remember, it is easier to identify what qualities are important to you once you experience a relationship where those qualities are not present.

Then when you finally realize that you are done putting up with the stuff that does not serve you.  And you become sooooo clear about what you NOW want.  You will be ready.  Now, of course it doesn’t have to get to that point, but if it does for you…that’s okay too 😉
