I often get asked how I’m doing and where I am in my healing journey and up until today I haven’t been able to answer with the exact and precise details of where I am as I haven’t had a scan since last November. Instead I have had to answer that question based on how I am feeling at that moment in time. And I am pleased to say that for the last 18 months since my diagnosis, I have been feeling wonderful thanks to my alkaline anti-inflammatory diet.
You may have noticed that I am leading up to tell you that I now have some new results. Yep, I bit the bullet and had a scan last week. If you’ve never heard me speak about my journey, you won’t know that I stopped having scans for a while. Why? Well, just because I felt like it. This time around, I have decided to take my health into my own hands and create the process as I go along (yes another way of describing this is that I am making up my own rules). I never was that keen on following the crowd! (That’s probably why I have never seen a whole episode of Gavin & Stacey – just because everyone else was watching and raving about it – yes I know that is stubborn and ridiculous but I don’t care!)
Throughout my healing journey, I wanted to avoid being told each time I got scanned “You have cancer” “You have cancer”… “Yes…you still have cancer” because it would feel that the cancer’s existence grew in strength everytime. So I just stopped having scans for a while. A whole year infact. But last week I decided to go and get scanned to see what the little bugger was up to. I was a bit sneaky about it and didn’t tell anyone either. I just wanted to go on my own and not have any pressure about getting the results and having my friends and family focus on it. So off I snuck and got some lovely cancer-promoting glucose injected into my arm that lit me up like a Christmas tree on the CT scan.
One week later and I have the results. The crux of it is: No growth. No spread to organs. Cancer is stable. Everything else is clear – you’re all good. Exact quote from doctor “it is very encouraging”. HELL YEAH IT IS SISTA! No cancer growth is most definitely a good thang.
Dear Me, thank you for trusting in me and my body. Thanks for drinking green juice, eating more plants & less animals, tuning into my body, meditating and experiencing stillness, wordlessness wonder and Oneness, having the balls to go against the crowd, trusting my gut, ignoring the negative fear-spreading psychos, following my heart, living and loving for now and making myself happy. You rock. Love Me.
So there you have it. I hope that this time next year my results will say, “There is no sign of cancer in your body”, hmm…that is definitely going on my vision board come to think of it. So for now, I’m keeping up with the green goodness, the alkalising, the daily staples that are super important to keeping well and trusting that all is well in my world.
Love you to the moon and back
