Good Lord, Nicole. So you've had problems. Welcome to the human race.

Nicole Black

Huh. Thanks for the comment, Kathleen. Not exactly the response I was expecting, but hey, to each her own, right?

I dunno Kathleen's comments seem a tad strange too but then online communication is often difficult to assess.

I have a friend who is a lawyer and she has cancer. Like you she immersed herself in her career to forget her own problems I suppose. Interestingly her diagnosis makes me more determined to have a life outside of the law.

You write about your husband and children. Glad they are around and that you have had the chance to grab more out of life.

Speaking of testicular cancer, I cured my own Stage 4 cancer in two weeks...nine years ago.


It's refreshing to see lawyers talk honestly about the law and the impact of the profession and prevailing attitudes on their lives. The book Staying at Home, Staying in the Law: A Guide to Remaining Active in the Legal Profession While Pursuing Your Dreams (American Bar Association, July 2008) speaks about the profession and the concerns you mention.
