A journal of my experiences with breast cancer to inform those who are interested and to help any one else who might have just been diagnosed.

Anticancer; A New Way of Life

"All scientific literature points in the same direction: People who want to protect themselves from cancer should seriously reduce their consumption of processed sugar and bleached flour. This means getting used to drinking coffee without sugar. (It's easier to give up sugar in tea.) It also means making do with two or three desserts a week. (There is no limit on fruit, as long as it is not sweetened with sugar or syrup.) Another option is to use natural substitutes for sugar that don't cause a rise in blood glucose or insulin."

Monday, January 19, 2015: Year Two Mammogram

Just a quick note to say that I had my yearly mammogram yesterday and everything was clear, so I am good to go for another year. It took all day but at least I knew the results before I left. Poor Steven had to wait in the waiting room not knowing why it was taking so long, so he was pretty wound up by the time I came out and was able to give him the results. Poor guy!
