What Cancer Feels Like

My Brain, On Cancer

Posted by on Jan 9, 2015 in Cancer Goddess, What Cancer Feels Like | 1 comment

Imagine that three months ago you got a sudden, constant, demanding headache -- right at the time you'd convinced yourself that life was about to get a whole lot better. Imagine then that within a week you knew that cancer had returned to where it had metastasized to your brain, and within two weeks you were pretty sure you were facing brain surgery. Nearly three months later you still await surgery. This is your new reality.

Two Years to Tango

These shoes became emblematic of my will to live. I was gonna say Eff You to cancer and learn to dance tango IF IT KILLED ME. Even though by the time I got the shoes, I barely had the strength to stand more than a couple of minutes, let alone dance on 3.5 inch stiletto heels.

Oh god oh god oh god I’ve been lying. About my condition. To you and to myself. Sure, yes, my physical condition is better than it was. Certainly from a year ago — even from six months ago — there’s been an improvement. Big improvement. From hardly standing to yay-the-yoga. All the things I said in my last post are true. Except…I put a way more positive spin on things than was real. For many reasons, and I’ll spill them all here I promise. I need to talk about...

The One About My Body; or, My Body Rocks Nine Ways

Hello you beauties! It’s time for a little tête-à-tête. Here, have some Valentine’s Day chocolate while I sip my tea and tell you about all the exciting things my body is doing. You may recall last fall I had scans and they were good news. Good news in my brain and good news in my bod. But here’s some stuff you don’t know, an update to the last time I wrote about this stuff: 1. I’m gaining weight. Kahuna calls me a horker. He’s kidding, of course, but...

What I eat every day could probably choke a horse

Time to do some math! I know, I know, math wasn’t my strong suit either. Suck it up. We’re going in. Add as you go. Every day I drink 10 juices, 7 green and 3 straight carrot. This is my new program, based on my metabolic profile (go here to read why I changed from the Gerson Therapy I was doing). The idea is to eat the foods my body actually needs, in the combination of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that works for me. We humans are not one size fits all. A diet that works for...

For those playing along at home, a recap: In July 2012 I found out I had Stage 4 cancer. In a single moment my life changed forever. Cancer — melanoma, a killer — had spread to my brain. Doctors expected me to live only a few months. They sent me home to die, with a wad of prescriptions in my hand. According to doctors I should be dead now. But I’m still here. You can’t get rid of me that fast, cancer! MUAHAHAHA! If doctors didn’t believe I could reverse cancer’s...
