I'm going to dare you to watch a movie.
It's a documentary, "Crazy Sexy Cancer," and it's actually on Discovery Health Channel today. And while I'm trying pretty hard to relate my experience here, Kris Carr manages to emote the Reality so much better with her visuals.
She's not alone nor does she have both oars in the water all the time (imho) but she's feeling on film the same feelings I have... and do. If you don't cry, um, well that won't happen. If you don't laugh, well, that won't happen either. Trust me, it will be a challenge.
So, buy a copy, rent it, borrow it from the library, or Netflix it... if you dare.
