Life Altering 11/13/14

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Three weeks ago I got a phone call from the doctor, that a test came back questionable. Had another test last week and this one came back positive. To hear your doctor say the word cancer is very frightening. Today i was having a pity party, as i have to have a hysterectomy (total, with lymph nodes, ovaries, everything) and I had to pull myself out of that frame of mind. I could lose myself in depression, but I made myself put on my big girl panties and make the day as normal as it possibly can be. I went to my WW meeting, grocery shopped and then the pity party hit. I forced myself to go for a walk, and I'm glad i did. Even though it was cold outside, the walk did me good.

Spending time trying to figure out what to get rid of in my life, anything toxic is going, going, gone. Only positive thoughts are going to be allowed in my head from now on.

Still trying to wrap my head around all of this. one good thing though, I'm not eating my way through this.

    Sorry to hear about the sad news but stay positive and don't let the horrible news get you down and let you eat your way through it. Food isn't a drug that helps you get over what's going on.

    That's scary news, but I admire your attitude. Remember, doctors can do so much more now than even a year ago. You will overcome this, too. Best to you!

    Keep that positive thought thread going.

    Lots of people have worse problems, that is what I tell myself! Find a way to deal with it in a non food way!

    Good luck.
