This book is an example of what could happen when someone gets a latent stage of cancer and learns to deal with it while going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The story time line is completely true and talks about real emotions, fears, and problems being faced through the healing process with their rewards. It even gives examples of both in various chapters.

Again Ms Anderson has taken her cleverness of combining her short stories to tell a larger story in this book. This is her third real try at telling her stories and this one is about a cancer survival story, so she hopes to keep your attention.

Ms Anderson chose to write this book as a first person and changed her name to Carla instead of using her real name Paula Jean or PJ. She felt that if the story was told as a first person that the reader will be drawn into the story and possibly experience some of the emotions, fears, and problems that she faced while going through actual cancer treatments.
What you are about to read this book will seem familiar in many ways because Ms Anderson had shared similar ideals in her past books. There are many of us grew up believing that woman should be subordinate to men and that marriage should be taken seriously. The Bible also teaches this idea. In Jeremiah 3:8 the prophet talks about being allowed to divorce under the circumstances of adultery. Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew 19 verifies this premise.

On Impulse, Carla commits adultery and was caught up in her sin. In fact, the person that she committed adultery with had already tried to kill himself in the past by overdosing on alcohol, smoking cigarettes, and marijuana. This all caused him to suffer a severe heart attack at an early age of 42 years old. He had several stints placed but even today continues to follow the above path.

After some time she completely stopped her interactions with him, her life started to change for the better. She was able to live a less stressful life. The problem is she would be by herself. She would continue to make many financial mistakes and decisions through being impulsive. In hindsight Carla would regret some of these decisions, but in the long run would learn to accept these mistakes and chalk them up to growing pains.

Carla was rewarded for her faithfulness. She continued to work as a Registered Nurse with the Texas state hospital system was placed in charge as a Charge Nurse during the night shift on an acute psychiatric unit. Due to her returning to work to soon, she couldn’t accept this position and ended up working on a Geriatric Medical unit. While working on this unit she is finding some peace and solitude. She even has been excelling in her position and has been allowing herself to grow as a stronger nurse. Because she wants to be the best nurse possible for the clients that she cares for, she tends to be an overachiever and does more that her peers mainly without being asked to do so.

Carla still is impulsive because she tends to end up being in the middle of conflicts and does continue to say some things that she doesn’t mean. Sometimes these conflicts cause Carla and her peers to become hurt emotionally and psychologically.
During the Diagnosis Process, Carla finds out that she does have a severe medical problem. This problem was found purely by accident when she was riding on a motorcycle ride with a few friends to Austin, Texas for The Republic of Texas Bike Fest. During this ride (which she lead), she complete almost passed out. Part of this was due to the heat, but the rest was related to a medical problem that she wasn’t aware of at the time. Carla did survive this event with no further complications.

Shortly after this event, Carla had a lump the size of a small baseball on the left side of her neck. She had just had her lower teeth removed due to a potential abscess and had just finished up a 10 day round of antibiotics. Because this lump was starting to affect her swallowing and brea
