Google + has taught me that I really have…

Things not to do when diagnosed with cancer;

1. Look up mortality rates

ebbs & flows, ups & downs.

I should start carrying my netbook with me. There are so many things running through my head all the time but by the time I get in front of a keyboard they’re gone. This morning I woke up and felt really good!  Lasted about three hours so that was cool. Now I’m back on the ibuprofen. I just don’t want it to get any worse before I get to the doctor and he can start taking care of things. I really don’t like pain.

I stopped dieting.:)  I changed my livestrong calorie goal from losing weight to maintaining weight. I’m still entering food & weight so I can keep track and know where things stand, I just didn’t want it to ever tell me I was eating too much.  I’ve lost two pounds this week. Which is okay, I’m still about 20 pounds over where I should be so I have a little buffer of weight to lose before I’ll start drinking the protein shakes. I’m eating new foods now to bump up my immunity.  Blueberries, and teas and stuff. I also have started taking a lot of Vitamin D and my husband put me on Vitamin E. Did I already type all this? I dunno.

I find it Ironic that I’ve been tracking my food and weight and activity on Livestrong, a site devoted to surviving and thriving after cancer, for all these years. I’ve now sent away for some of their literature and some pretty yellow wristbands.
