Cancer Goddess Rises, Days 41-48: Updates

Posted by on Sep 17, 2012 in Cancer Goddess | 2 comments

This is what I did last week. Hi there. I’m Talyaa and I have cancer. I don’t know why I said that. Just needed to, I guess. So anyway, a bunch of things have happened since we talked last. I figure that if I get them out of the way and bring you up to today in the Deep Pit Of Everything And Nothing that is my brain, tomorrow I can start fresh. I had the flu. Or maybe it wasn’t the flu. It felt like the flu. Day One was a sore throat, sniffly nose, and crying. Day Two was...

There have been some really hard days here. Ghosts from my past zoom into my head and make me say and do things that later I wonder who in their right mind does that? Yelling angrily down the stairs at my soulmate. Deliberately sabotaging my Gerson program and blowing off things that I know are good for me.

My Kahuna and I nap together nearly every day. Some days it doesn’t work out. Maybe one of us is angry at the other, or wound too tightly, or our rhythms don’t mesh and we miss the exquisite yumminess of curling up together and drifting off into sleep to wake up in the arms of our beloved, but most days we get our 20 minute power nap in. The little moments like that mean so much now that our entire lives are thrown into upheaval, much like the now TWO refrigerators that hold entire...

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. That was my...
