The procedure was simple and outpatient. They went in laparoscopically via three small incisions in my lower abdomen, removed a mass on my right ovary, drained a cyst … More Under The Knife

I haven’t officially been diagnosed with ‘Panic Disorder’, but I suspect that will be coming soon enough. A lot of people think these aren’t real diseases. A lot of … More Double Negative

Disclaimer: My frustrations lie with the country’s reaction, not necessarily the jury’s decision. Keep this in mind, and please be nice.
