Bruce Jenner has revealed his struggle with gender dysphoria!

Bruce Jenner has revealed his struggle with gender dysphoria last night with a scheduled interview with Diane Sawyer.  Yes, we all remember him as the  "decathlon gold medalist," "world's greatest athlete, super handsome man.  At least, I remember him that way years ago. 

His second wife, (Linda Thompson) also known as one of Elvis’ girlfriends……just one day after Bruce's interview posted her story..........gosh, seemed like it waiting to go hot off the press.  It was written so eloquently and almost a perfect story for a movie deal.  It seemed like the story was already written and only need to click on the "send" button.

She praises her ex-husband and vowed to keep his secret.  She said the Bruce she knew back then was an easygoing, down-to-earth, casual, romantic, good and loving man.  She was extremely happy to have found such a remarkable partner with whom to share her life. She found him to be honorable and, well, just too good to be true. Just too good to be true indeed.

The 2nd wife does add:  She wouldn't be completely forthcoming if I didn't disclose in her writings that after Bruce and Kris married, there were periods of several years going by without Bruce attempting to contact or visit his sons. No birthday cards or phone calls, no "Merry Christmas," no "Everything OK?" after the big Northridge earthquake.

Brandon and Brody will never have those "Hallmark memories" of father-and-son moments. They were saddened by his lack of participation in their lives, and her heart ached for them. When Brandon asked her, "Mom, what kind of a father doesn't come to his son's graduation?" she meekly replied, "Honey, your dad may have been the world's greatest athlete physically, but emotionally, you have to view him in a wheelchair".

As I watched TV last night during Diane Sawyer's interview, she blatantly asked Bruce if this was all a ploy for publicity for his reality show with the Kardashians?  I have to admit, it crossed my mind immediately and his facial expression and response made me think about it again.  I’m still wondering!    I knew Diane Sawyer was going to ask this question.  Just knew it………..I would have asked it too!  Anyone remotely that close to the Kardashians has to be questioned.
Why was Bruce married so many times to women when he clearly felt he was a woman?  And clearly stated that he is not a lesbian.  Has never been with another man.  I don't understand the part of him not being in touch with two of his other sons after he married Mrs. K.

I'm sure many watched the Interview last night.

Bruce has his own life to live how he chooses.  I don't think he should have dragged so many other women into it.  He should have told them all before he married them.  That is my opinion.

There is always trouble brewing when you mention the name Kardashian or Kanya!  I’m sure there is more to reveal.  Smells like more money needs to be made by this clan!  I was not aware that the TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians was Bruce's original idea and that he put it all together!

Bruce said it himself last night, that the real story in the Kardashian’s show was HIM!  His eyes twinkled when he said it.

I remember him as the handsome athlete.  And when Bruce gave Kanya a compliment last night explaining that he was the man who explained it all to Kim.  And he seemed to have loved that coming out of Kanya's mouth.  Barf!!

Oh my………anyone that can put Kanya into their story is Uh..off the charts with me.  

Shall we place out bets now?  Think there is a movie forthcoming?  Wow.

I do however, feel extremely bad if Bruce has struggled all these years with gender dysphoria or is just running out of money.  Hey, the Kardashians don't come cheap!  The also lack any form of talent to have a TV show!  duh.

Celebrities surely mess up their lives because they have too much damn money!

I'm sure he has a couple of other wives that may want to cash in on this.

If Bruce's story is true then I apologize for thinking badly about him and he needs the support from everyone but on the other hand.........I don't trust The Kardashians and I really don't trust Kayna!

I, normally don't like writing about celebs.  I see enough of their untruths in the junk papers while checking out my groceries and just viewing the front covers of the papers only because I'm standing in line waiting...........Junk papers like stretching their stories and that is not fair to the celebs.  But, when the celeb themselves start talking, it better be the truth or shame on them.

Keep in mind, it is the fans that keep them rich!

I'm begging all of you to see your Dermatologist!

I’m begging all of you to make an appointment with a Board Certified Dermatologist right now.  Do not procrastinate.  You will want someone skilled in this field to examine your entire body for any disease, infection, skin abnormalities and the harsh effects of aging and sun damage.

If you are married or living with someone, please examine each other’s body looking for some warning signs that may indicate basal cell carcinoma, an open sore, a reddish patch, a growth with an elevated border, a bump or a nodule and a scar like area.

I, faithfully have an annual appointment with my Dermatologist.  And in March, 2015, I was diagnosed with Basal Cell Carcinoma and four weeks later had surgery to remove the cancer and burn the area.

My doctor had a patient that ignored for years a spot on her arm.  She lost an eyeball because of not seeking medical help!  This is very serious.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer.  It occurs most frequently on sun exposed regions of the body.  Yet, mine is located in an area that I would have to have gone sun bathing topless!  I'm not a sun bather because I hate to sweat.  I live in Florida and can’t avoid the sun while walking to my car or doing errands.  I used to use my pool but only after 4:00 PM when the sun was coming down.

I now have a hole on my right side right under wear the elastic of my bra would hit and it digs in.  Ouch!

I went back to my doctor’s office the other day, as I was concerned about the red ring around the wound and just not looking like it was healing properly to me.  Well, my doctor was super busy and I walked in unannounced with no appointment which I have never done before but I was only a block away from his office when I decided to make an appearance out of concern for my health.

The nurse was not as gentle as my doctor.  My doctor never hurts me and this nurse with ruthless!  She dug in deeper and deeper and called me a wuss!  She later put something on my wound and warned me it would burn real bad.  I dug my nails in her arm!  The burning lasted throughout my 20 minute drive home.  Ugh.  My doctor will hear about this experience during my next appointment for sure!

When I arrived home, all I wanted was to do was yank the bra off and get into my bed!  Well, the gal in the next door condo just had her third child and the infant was crying and crying…. Give me a break!

We all take so much for granted!

We all take so much for granted including myself of course.

I get so involved with the everyday tasks and chores that must be done ASAP that most times, I miss the beauty of today.

I try to do what my daughter does, she carries her camera with her at all times and of course she has her smartphone to capture a picture right then and there.

I stopped by my lovely new Library last week because I was getting impatient trying to download a book from my Library to my Kindle to read.  Every book I selected popped up that I had to “Put on Hold”.  I had an upcoming surgery and needed a book to read while mending.

While sitting out at my Library’s patio enjoying a cup of coffee from their Cafe, I forgot how lovely the atmosphere is there.  I used to frequent my library constantly in the past.  I just love my Kindle for the convenience and also that I’m able to set the font to my liking and that background light is also easy on my eyes while reading.  But sometimes, there is a waiting game for that book and it maybe on "hold" for quite some time before being able to download it.

I did a dumb thing the other day with my Kindle and getting impatient waiting for a book I wanted to read and download from the library; so I decided to buy the book from my Kindle.  After reading a couple of chapters, I realized that I have read this book before!  LOL  Thank goodness purchasing books to download to your Kindle is so much cheaper than buying a book.  $6.99.  I keep a log of all the books I have read on Shelfari so I'm surprised this one slipped by me!

I enjoyed the couple of hours I spent at the Library.  I was mesmerized by the loveliness all around me.  I seldom look up from my daily routine of things to notice some spectacular surroundings.  My library is fairly new and very unusual compared to most old, stuffy libraries.

The sky was so blue and the grass was so green.  The palm trees were swaying with the slight breeze.  What's not to love!

I need to pay more attention and appreciate the treasures of my immediate surroundings more often. 

It’s a nice peaceful feeling.
