Busy, busy, busy.

I went for the smash-o-gram today. My poor boob.
Still know nothing but should by Monday when I go for my thyroid check up.

The three Mississippi girls have decided to go on the Steve Wilkos Show but only if they are not asked about their crimes. Well- the rimes that got them where they are.

They've all agreed to talk about drugs and their ill effects and ruining their lives etc.

So- we'll see how that turns out.

Michelles still hunts the illusive Joey Gillis. I cant find him and I dont understand it. He has dissappeared.
Saw the doctor yesterday.
The night before I was thinking to myself "If this turns out to be cancer Im going to call Jeannie"
Jeannie is a girl I went to school with. We have been friends through the years. We see each other here and there and talk for a while. She had breast cancer last year and every time I saw her it never seemed to phase her. Always bright and happy even when I saw her in Food Lion with a bag on her hip and no hair. The last time I saw her she was preparing for her second wedding to a MUCH better guy. Cool.

So I was a little taken aback when I walked in the doctors office to find Jeannie sitting there. We immediately fell into conversation as I filled out my paperwork but the entire time in the back of my head Im wondering if this is a sign from God. Kind of a "Here ya go I saved you the step of calling her..." type thing...

But I think all is well ( but lets not count chickens) because after feeling around for a while she pronounced it the "g…
Just when you think it's almost over... the crap hits the cookie cutter.
I was having a pretty good week all things considered. I started my new job, my DH got a raise that we finally started to feel and all the kids came home with glowing report cards. And thats saying a lot when there are SIX kids to make sure homework is done and done right. I also put an end to Nikki. I was forced to put an end to it by my DH. Im still stung by the way she used me for years. I should have paid her off earlier but my pride kept me from it. The whole thing for me was ego, Ill admit it. I go every single day of my life trying to help someone elses life become a little easier place and when I need help its always a friend that kicks you in the gut. It hurt. She gave a whole new meaning to "no good deed goes unpunished". At least now she is using someone else. I dont even like that thought. What will she do now for blog fodder?

So I was pleased. Then I find the lump. OK, ok I know that not …
Here is the lovely Karla. She is one half of Canadas most horrific killing couple.I believe she got off very, very easily and I tend to side with these gals more often than not.She killed her own sister for her husbands sexual pleasure and raped and killed others as well.She is now a free woman, remarried and a mother of a little boy.
Aileen Wournos Arrest Report
Did wife poison Marine? - Crime & courts- msnbc.com

This woman was released today after spending two years behind bars for a crime she didnt commit. Imagine if they would have executed her in that time frame?
Munchausen syndrome is a condition in which a person intentionally fakes, simulates, worsens, or self-induces an injury or illness for the main purpose of being treated like a medical patient.

Michelle Byrom ate rat poison for years until her internal organs and processes began to slowly shut down on her. Why? Because if she were sick enough to be in the hospital she was out of her house. She wasnt being punched in the face or kicked in the kidneys until she peed blood or well... you get the picture. Her husband Edward could not reach her there. She could heal. The split lip could finally seal and her stomach muscles could take a break.

One day she was admitted to the hospital and while she slept in her hospital bed her son walked into the house and shot her husband.

Michelle sits on death row where she still has the symptoms of the years of rat poison ingestion but no longer receives the proper treatment for them. Sh…
[J-178-2006] IN THE SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA EASTERN DISTRICT CAPPY, C.J., CASTILLE, SAYLOR, EAKIN, BAER, BALDWIN, JJ.

This is official Supreme Court version of what happened with Beth Markman when she and her boyfriend killed the girl, Leslie White, that he had cheated on her with.

I used to write to Beth and I do believe that she is a decent woman. There is record of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her boyfriend for years before the murder and the night before he held her hostage with a knife, cutting and raping her for hours. But she got extremely angry at me. She asked me what I had read about her online. So I printed the article Id found and sent it to her. She became enraged and refused to write to me anymore. Go figure. When I read about Beths case I often wonder what I would have done in her shoes. I have seen my mother beatten to a bloody pulp when I was a girl and I know that there were times she would have done anything to stop it.

Beth is no longer on death row bu…
I have had the very distinct and memorable pleasure of working with Susan Shapiro Barash on a few articles. She is a joy to work with and a super smart lady and fantastic author. Her books are powerhouses of information for women. I'm proud to say I received a review copy of her latest book last month and I was utterly mesmerized from one page to the next.

Little White Lies and Deep Dark Secrets- The Truth About Why Women Lie was an amazingly insightful read. It gives a fascinating view of how society forces women to lie. It explains how society gives women mixed messages from infancy.

She says:

Ever since we were little girls, we have been encouraged to keep secrets.

I was raised a good girl, like most women in America, where instinctively we knew that a secret was sacred, I was taught to never betray a trust. The fact that a mishandled secret could endanger someone was shown to me by my mother, my aunts, my grandmothers, so I knew to believe this. I remember feeling special wh…
One of the biggest things that seperates us from animals is empathy. We have the ability to put ourselves in other peoples shoes and see things from their point of view. This is a gift we have been given as humans.
So why dont more people use it?
When you see a woman who sits on death row or a homeless man on the side of the road do sniff with disgust? Do you judge immedietly? Or maybe you think "what happened in her life that made her so screwed up?"
Or maybe your like me. I do both. I catch myself juding people immedietly for various reasons and I have to stop. Regroup.
What if it were me?
A card from Michelle. I got th is card in reply from the letter I sent her last week.
