Keto Life: Week Two

New week, new lessons learned. The 2nd week of this experiment has gone far better than Week 1. Probably because I don't have to withdraw from sugar again. And probably because it's not as new and scary as it was the first week. In any case, keeping it simple has paid off in dividends and … Continue reading Keto Life: Week Two

In the thick of it

I realize a lot of my sorrow last round was self-made, sort of.

Day 1: Infusion Center I actually felt pretty dang fantastic after getting injected with my poison to the point that my BFF … Continue reading Round 1 Thus Far…

The Bitch is Back

Perhaps some of you have noticed that I went a little radio silent on the 2nd biopsy results -- or didn't realize that my big benign announcement was only for the 1st biopsy. Let's just go ahead and pull the band-aid off. The 2nd biopsy came back malignant. I start chemotherapy on Friday, March 17. … Continue reading The Bitch is Back

Not freaking out anymore. And here’s why. (Plus an update)

Note: The administrative update of biopsies are at the bottom, so if that's what you're here for, just scroll on down. Continuing on... Thank goodness for a good therapist. I had plans of writing about my therapy and why I've found it to be so helpful, in the hopes that it encourages others to seek … Continue reading Not freaking out anymore. And here’s why.
