Quit Chemo December 15, 2014, had enough finally. Since its World Cancer Day, thought posting a more detailed update of my most recent decisions I have made in my life.
I was diagnosed at 14, with reoccurrences at 20, 23, and 30 with acinic cell carcinoma. I have been on chemo for almost 3 years and have been battling this now for 18 years. For the first time in my life I am learning to truly take care of myself and take responsibility for my health. I have struggled all my life with sugar and food, always wondering if it was an addiction. I wake up and spend every moment of my life working on my health and healing, but I don’t regret for a moment the decisions I have made and look forward to a healthy and cancer free future!!!!!!!!
Feels so great to have eye lashes and eyebrows even if it’s only 2 days!
Even my ladies at the Starbucks drive-through today were stunned and complementing my eyes!!!! Funny how something as little as eyelashes you have no idea how thankful you should be until you lose them…… So many things in life I took for granted until going through this, but if anything it has only made me stronger, more thankful to be alive (trust me things could be soooo much worse) and I know I am going to beat this (I have never believed cancer would beat me, just taking longer than I originally imagined, hope this doesn’t mean I am in denial, lol).
