In the year 2000, Stephen Graham King was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive cancer known as synovial sarcoma, beginning a four-year ordeal of radiation, chemotherapy, physiotherapy, and multiple recurrences.After having trouble with his left knee for much of his adult life, King finally saw a doctor following a bump to the leg that almost made him pass out from the excruciating pain. After the diagnosis, he endured five major, invasive surgeries that cost him a large portion of his left leg and half of his left lung, radically changing his body, mind, and self-image forever. And in the end, forcing him to relearn many things: some as basic as re-learning how to walk.As a gay man who is part of an image-conscious subculture within our image-driven society, he was forced to confront his feelings about his body on the long road back to health.Now, in Just Breathe, King shares his journey from health to illness and back to health again through prose and journal entries written during the battle. Told with candour and humour, this is the story of his challenging recovery and the love of life, friends, and family that helped him to survive.
My rules were created so I’d have control and be able to remove any and all elements of emotion when it comes to men — when it comes to relationships, period. There’s no need to let them in my heart, just in my pants for the night to satisfy my itch. Temptation reared it’s ugly head and won— I’ve broken a rule — one of my rules. No big deal, right? Then, why do I want to do it again? It’s just sex. Yes. It's just sex, that’s all. As long as Joe knows that it’s just sex, I don’t mind bending the rules. Will Emma continue to allow her fear of loss to control her life, or does love play by its own set of rules? Please note: There are sexually explicit scenes F/M and F/F/M

'Truth is, there is never a good time for tragedy to occur. A loss is a loss, and the time of the year really doesn't matter all that much.' Bad things happen. Really bad things happen. They happen to everyone, but somehow you hoped tragedy wouldn't happen to you. It did. The pain is unbearable and you can't seem to get yourself together. You feel the life you had is over and nothing will ever be good again. Tragedy makes us feel that way, but there is hope. Just Breathe deals with tragedy from a new perspective. Whether it's suicide, a terrible car wreck, or a terminal disease, terrible things happen to people we love and we don't know what to do next. This book helps you confront tragedy from different angles so you can live the great life God wants for you. The true stories in the book are devastating. You will sympathize with their pain and identify with their hurt. You will wonder if it's possible to live a good life again after tragedy destroys it. It is indeed possible; Jesus shows us how as this book follows two disciples on the worst day of their lives. Has tragedy knocked the wind out of you? Do you desperately need to take a deep breath? This book is about learning how to take a deep breath after something really bad happens to you. It's about turning your tragedy into triumph, and enjoying the life God has for you.
