How can't one person's early morning distress and tantrum be possibly pacified by a simple text message telling how inspired another person can be after reading a story that came out in the Philippine Daily Inquirer?

"Just got inspired today by Jepoi's story on Ovarian Chants, " read a text from Oibone, whose mother, I know, survived an ovarian cancer.

The story is about artist Ross Zerrudo's struggle, pain, angst, fear, and survival in the face of an ovarian problem. Oh well, IT IS an ovarian problem, hello.

Why I am writing this? Because I know Jepoi, I know Oibone, and I know Ross and I read the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

And like Oibone and everyone else in this doomed country, as pointed out by Joy, I am one soul who needs even just a small amount of inspiration.

One of the Las Tres Estrellas' sister died of ovarian cancer last year.

Most of this type of cancer are asymptomatic. Early diagnosis helps.

I am inspired with your friend's story as well.

@tin: waking up at 9eyem has always been my problem. But what can i do? i cannot choose not to wake up.

@lyka: oh well. death. and you talking about it makes this post really---something.

I am so sorry to hear about what happened to OUR sistaer. the ovary supposedly defines a woman. without it, i dont think there is still enough reason for a woman to exist, if not no reason to live.
