A few years ago I wrote a journal entry here about my wife and her battle with cancer.  I received emails and  messages from lots of folks expressing the fact that they took inspiration from what I wrote.  People wanted to know how she was doing.  People were inspired by my obvious love for this woman and my pride in her brave struggle against this terrible disease.

The truth is very rarely as beautiful as the things we like to write down.

I remember how fragile she seemed as the chemo treatments coursed their way through her body.  

I remember hiding away when her hair started falling out so she wouldn't see the tears I could no longer fight back.  

I remember imagining my life without her if she lost the fight, and how horribly empty it seemed.

I remember watching her sleep;  the steady rise and fall of her chest as her body fought for every breath

I remember touching her face lightly with my lips while she dreamed.

I remember telling her I would love her forever...and meaning it with all my heart and soul.

Her hair grew back in and the color returned to her face.  The bandages came off and once again there was a future I could stand to consider.

How is a person supposed to react when their spouse says something as horrible as "I don't love you anymore"?  How is one supposed to cope when those words come on the same day the bandages come off and the healing process is finally complete?  How can the human mind comprehend something as horrible as the fact that the person you love the most has used you, and once your usefulness is at an end they intend to cast you aside?  

And so I've continued to live without her after all, and it turns out it is possible to find happiness after such an horrific event.  For anyone out there who is reading this and going through the worst period of their life, trust me that it will get better.  Embrace the world and find happiness again.  We are here for only a little while, and it seems a shame to waste precious seconds dwelling on things that keep us from smiling.

In the end, all of us are warriors.

Contest Info was created so that contests all over DA could be found easier.
Sorta like a one-stop solution instead of searching the complicated and crowded news section.

All contests are featured with the nearest deadlines being first for your convenience.

After the deadline is passed, your contest will be removed from the list to make room for all the others-therefore, we MUST be noted with any extensions that you give so that we can continue to feature you until the contest is officially over.

If you are hosting a contest, or know a fellow deviant who is, then please feel free to NOTE me with a link to it so that I can advertise for them here.

To make things less complicated, I recommend posting our icon in your clubs section, and checking in ever so often to see what's new. That way, you're helping us out, as well as having a nice little quick link to us on your page for yourself.

Advertising our icon in your journals would be a great help in making us, and everyone we feature a success.

=SquidWish is also willing to do commissions in exchange for subscription donations for our page!
Please feel free to note her if you're interested!
