I go by Servivorgirl. Just over 8 years ago I was diagnosed with advanced IIIC ovarian cancer. I recurred in January of 2012 and have recently rejoiced in N.E.D. via C.T. scan. My numbers have risen slightly but I worry not. I have chronic serious side effects from long term treatment and have adapted to a new normal. I remain on maintenance Avastin.
I pray daily. My praise is to God for His love keeps me whole. Amen.

Food For Thought On Ostracization
Food For Thought:
I started researching this today because I saw an article about how isolation can
lead to an early death.
Being ignored is a form of ostracization, a slow social death. Something to think about as we ignore the elderly, the sick, the homeless, those who aren't cool enough, those who aren't rich enough, those who are not "like" whoever thinks they are so important that everyone
must be like them to be worthy of their time.
I personally know women who have experienced this and it is unfair because when someone is on the receiving end of being ostracized, there is no two-way communication, no chance for reconciliation.
And if you are in a position of being isolated, ostracized or abandoned, please seek counseling and participate in discussion groups, church activities, community activities and find old friends who can be there with you to help strengthen you heart.
Prayer is a wonderful way to offset the effects of loneliness.
