My belongings left behind wouldn’t be worth much. I don’t really have fancy special belongings. The oddest thing they may find? I will have to give that some more thought, but right now I would go with my rock collection and/or my collection of books on trauma.

    A bamboo root that was a piece of beach driftwood when I found it.

    At the age of 36 I had cervical cancer. I worked as a Quality Control Manager at a large electronics factory. My husband said that if I had the hysterectomy that my doctor was going to do, he would take the kids and divorce me. My mother-in-law took away the kids, saying that she didn’t want her grandchildren around sickness. My cancer reached a state of the hysterectomy being a life-saving emergency. The cancer was sending out roots wrapping around my vital organs. After the hysterectomy and short hospital stay, my husband brought me home and dumped me on the sofa. He did not want me in his bed. In a few days, my chemo and radiation treatments were to start —– and my husband packed his things and left me. I knew chemo was going to be 8 months of hell. I was all alone. No one to drive me to my treatments, no one to fix me meals, no one to help me into bed, and no one to reach my pain medication, which my husband put on a high shelf that I couldn’t reach.

    I crawled to the bathroom, but could not get up off of the floor. I called my Mom to tell her of my condition and she told me that I wasn’t sick and to stop being dramatic. I called my brother’s wife, but she said that with a house full of kids there was no way that she could come and help me. I was utterly alone. My pain meds were on a high shelf and I threw everything I could reach to knock the little bottle of pills off of the shelf. It broke and scattered pills everywhere. The only water I could reach was in the toilet bowl and I could not reach the handle to flush it. My husband had peed and did not flush. I knocked down the plastic water cup and scooped toilet pee water to take my first pain pill. THIS was rock bottom for me. I was alone and felt my life was over.

    When the pain meds subsided my pain, I got up and walked across the street to the beach. I was going to go into the water and never come out alive. I agonized over being all alone in my sickness and no one to help me get treatments to get well. In my depression, I gave up. I saw a stick sticking up out of the sand. I was going to throw it in the water before going to my death in the sea.

    I pulled the stick and it had more to it. The stick part was in my hand. The rest of it looked like Godzilla. Godzilla!!!! It had big legs and little arms, a face and eyes. It made me laugh. From the point of laughter, my life brightened. I sat in the sand for hours —– thinking. I held the stick in my hand. If the rest of him looked like Godzilla, then what was the stick growing out of his groin??? I rolled in the sand laughing!!! He was absolutely a male!!! I named him Dicky Monster and took him home. For days, Dicky Monster was my only friend.

    Thinking and talking to dicky Monster, it occurred to me that I had a phone book with 50 friends and co-workers. I called everyone. No one could take time off to help me, but everyone could do me favors, like pick up food to bring me, or help me change my bed sheets, or give me a ride to my treatments. It took 8 months and I got well again.

    So, that one really strange thing is a bamboo root that looks like Godzilla with a really big dick!!! Dicky Monster is dear to me. Immortal Pirate put it on a shelf. It is weird but means a lot to me. It stands for HOPE. Even when things look the bleakest, there is always hope.

        @Tits McGee In my 72 years, I have had a lot of loves overlapping and serious life threatening cancer 3 times. I pack a lot of living in 72 years and wore out 5 husbands. (only one is still alive) Now, I am with a man several years younger than me and I am still enjoying life and the sex is GREAT!!!
        My icon picture is taken this last Fall season. I have a lot more life in me.

        @Scarlett2 I blocked him, too, but it drove me nuts that he could still see what I post and make his nasty comments. He sure is a hateful member.

    I have a collection of feathers held behind an inspirational plaque I collected over the years.

      @immortal_pirate That is true. A person walks into our house, is impressed with the many weapons displayed —— but when they enter the dining room half filled with a huge pirate ship —– !!!! —- Its an “Oh — My — God” moment.
