Would You Love Me If….

Would You Love Me If….

Would you love me if I burned dinner? Would you love me if I forgot to buy toilet paper? Would you love me if I dented the car? Would you love me if I left Christmas shopping to the last minute? Would you love me if I'd rather stay in on a Saturday night? Would … Continue reading Would You Love Me If….

Inside Anxiety

Inside Anxiety

Fun fact about me: I occasionally suffer from panic attacks. They began shortly after cancer became part of my life. They come out of nowhere. Randomly. Usually at the worst possible times. I'm having one now. I'm trying to distract myself. If I don't and I let the feelings wash over me, I'm afraid the … Continue reading Inside Anxiety

When “It’s Nothing” Becomes “It’s Something”

When “It’s Nothing” Becomes “It’s Something”

If you've been following my blog, you're familiar with my track record of "aches and pains" that turn out to be nothing or have no explanation. It's become kind of a light-hearted joke between me and my Oncologist. She will ask me how I'm feeling and I usually respond with something like: Does it matter? … Continue reading When “It’s Nothing” Becomes “It’s Something”

On the Road Again

On the Road Again

  Today I'm making my favorite trip again. *eyeroll*  I'm headed down to Sloan-Kettering for another fast and dirty trip for a PET/CT. The last time I updated regarding my health, I was going to see a GI Oncologist at Sloan on September 28th to see if she could unravel the mystery that is me. … Continue reading On the Road Again

The Day We Died At The Capitol

The Day We Died At The Capitol

I attended a Metastatic Breast Cancer conference back in April in Philadelphia hosted by Living Beyond Breast Cancer.  It was a memorable experience for many reasons. The most notable was that a new movement was born from that conference. MetUp is the brainchild of fellow mester Jennie Grimes. As was the rest of us, Jennie … Continue reading The Day We Died At The Capitol

Door #1, 2 or 3

I have been on a medically approved break from my Aromatase Inhibitor since June. Since then I have been able to lose 15lbs and I've felt so much better. While I've been on this break I have been seriously considering making this break permanent.  Whelp, my Oncologist got wind of my thoughts and wrote me … Continue reading Door #1, 2 or 3

Looking Back

Looking Back

2 yrs ago on, August 19th, while taking my husband to the airport, I received a call from my GP that I wouldn't truly understand. I had been undergoing tests for most of the month for what I had thought was a kidney infection. The previous Thursday I had an MRI and was anxiously waiting … Continue reading Looking Back

A New Chapter

A New Chapter

In a previous post I mentioned that my Oncologist suggested I take a break from the Exemestane I've been taking since my diagnosis.  I had been complaining about my increasing weight and my inability to lose any. That was in June. Fast forward to today and I'm now down 17lbs and I'm walking a half … Continue reading A New Chapter
