I grew up in Montebello, California, second generation Angeleno. My great grandparents emigrated from Germany in the 1800s. I represented California in "The Federation for Peace" conference in South Korea & in India. I have Cubital tunnel syndrome, and after 2 surgeries it worsens, so please forgive numb hands and typos.;-) Graduated Summa Cum Laude from California State University in 1996. I work part time in a mortuary. Gallows humor is a survival mode often used to lighten the load of the work that we do.
- In my work as a Hospice Minister, I am often unavailable for several days at a time. Please take this into consideration when attempting to place a time limit on any request for a response.
- In March of 2013, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. After a partial Mastectomy I am still battling due to the HER2/neu. Chemo Brain Post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment (VERY misleading Title!) is definitely NOT fun! Chemotherapy left me with Diabetes and peripheral neuropothy. I am still quite weak and it will be a long recovery. October 2015
- Recovery is slow I am still quite weak from the cancer, Chemotherapy and Radiation. I am in remission but the murder of my police officer son, Shaun, has slowed recovery considerably.
What is the difference between God and doctors? God doesn't think he is a doctor.
I am continuously learning the intricacies of Wikipedia, NOTHING should be this complicated; trolls are the epitome of evil. Baseless accusations still stun me. You are NOT paranoid if they are REALLY out to get you!
- In any dispute the intensity of feeling is inversely proportional to the value of the stakes at issue. Sayre's law
- Please feel free to shorten my name to "Doc" not DOS. UGH. That is so PC and I am so MAC! ;-) TY Pablo!
- In deference to Doc #1 please make that Doc #2 ;-) And Yes, I do have a Doctorate.
- IF ONLY I HAD KNOWN...
My other personal project is to educate people about Ovarian Cancer It Whispers - so listen carefully . . . Watch for -
- Pelvic or abdominal pain or discomfort;
- vague but persistent gastrointestinal upsets such as gas, nausea, and indigestion;
- frequency and/or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection;
- unexplained weight gain or weight loss;
- pelvic and/or abdominal swelling, bloating and/or feeling of fullness;
- ongoing unusual fatigue; Do NOT chalk it up to depression!
- unexplained changes in bowel habits.
- If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, ask your doctor for a combination pelvic/rectal exam and
- and trans-vaginal ultrasound. A CA-125 blood test is not infallible. More on new test as I find it.
A pap test WILL NOT detect ovarian cancer.

On October 29,2014, my SWAT policeman son was murdered while on duty. He was given a hero's funeral rivaling that of Kennedy's. The flag was flown at half staff in Sacramento and Governor Brown attended his funeral] Please google "Shaun Diamond" for the details. I am destroyed. See List of American police officers killed in the line of duty October 29, 2014. I thought God broke my heart to prove, He only takes the best ♥ R.I.P. TES He proved it beyond belief when my son was murdered. He was MY best and I am lost without him.
