Posted by on Aug 29, 2012 in Cancer Goddess | 11 comments

This is what Fantasy Cancer is Okay, so it turns out this cancer thing? Is totally for real. I have no idea what I was thinking because I must have been living on Fantasy Island, but it went something like this: I will kick this thing in the ass and take names! With one hand — make that both hands!! — tied behind my back Hmm, 50 Shades of Cancer… naaah I’m not really that sick. See? I’ll feel better in a week! Because I am so awesome! Piece of cake. Really.

Cancer Goddess Rises, Days 25-26: Abundance

From the Department of Not-a-Rhetorical-Question: Where do you shop when you need to buy 70 pounds of apples and 75 pounds of carrots — every week? I have found the secret to abundance! Here it is: Get cancer. Bear with me here. This is my thinking. If you had cancer, you’d want to heal, right? Reverse the course of things and send that cancer crying to its mommy? Of course you would. Which is why you need all those carrots. Drinking 8 ounces of fresh juice every hour sounded like such...

Today was Day One of the next two years of my life. We started the Gerson therapy in full today: fresh veggie and fruit juices, 8 ounces every hour; 3 big nutritious meals including soup, baked potato, oatmeal, and vegetables; 5 coffee enemas. Until last week I never thought anything could get me to do an enema, let alone FIVE EVERY FREAKING DAY. This week has been a whirlwind of getting-things-ready. Things felt urgent. With the news that the C-Word is all up in my head it just felt like...

She is direct and forthright, but compassionate. She lays it all out there. But she also seems to really care.  I like that. All of it.

Cancer Goddess Rises, Day 20: Helplessly Hopeless

When I was 9, I read The Hobbit for the first time. You know the chapter called Out of the Frying Pan Into the Fire, where Bilbo and the dwarves have escaped the goblins but Wargs attack them so they quickly climb tall fir trees? And then the goblins show up and set fire to the trees. That’s how I feel right now — I am in a burning tree ringed by hungry giant wolves and nasty goblins. And I doubt any magic eagles are about to rescue me. I can only hope this is the bottom and that...
