2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

I am having a CT Scan of my chest today because I have had swollen feet and abdomen for a couple of months now. They also did an ultra sound a long time ago and it didn't show anything. Of course, now that I am finally having the test, I haven't been swollen at all now for a couple of weeks!

My Dr is sending me for an MRI because of one leg swelling and nothing showing on ultrasound. I saw something on Dr Oz the other day where he said it is people getting weak that causes their death, not the cancer, and I am determined that if mine has come back I will be as strong as possible to fight it and not die from weakness. The swelling has gone down finally, though not all the way, so that gives me a lot of positive feeling.

I had stage IIIa lung cancer but I never really believed I was that sick! I don't know why, but I guess I was in denial. I had been sick for a long time before the diagnosis and knew that something was seriously wrong, but never dreamed it would be cancer. I was getting sick every month with something, but nothing that was ever serious. I think it's odd that I still don't feel like I ever really had cancer. I think maybe because I imagine someone to be really, really ill, when they have it, and I never felt i was that ill.

Although, the chemo and radiation made me so sick that at one point, I really did believe I had it and even thought I wouldn't survive it either, but I don't remember thinking that for long.

I think that attitude also helps with the results. I haven't ever been a really positive person, but during cancer treatment I felt more positive about things than I ever did before. A lot of that was because of the feeling that God let me know I would be okay. I was at stage 4 uterine cancer and stage 3b ovarian cancer. I had been healthy all my life until about 4 months before my diagnosis when I found out I had diabetes. I had been stressed for several years before either of those diagnoses, though, and I think that possibly had to do with both problems.

I do believe attitude and a positive outlook makes all the difference in the world! Your mind is a powerful thing, and believing you can overcome is the first step to overcoming anything:)

It was weird that I got breast cancer. I was healthy (I thought) and I didn't have relevant family history of it. But at the same time that year I had been pretty down - as a homesick expat - lacking sunlight & a strong social support (in a culture where I don't speak the language on top of this), I was doing a job I didn't like & often going into the victim mode with my husband about all this & wanting to move back home. I saw this all clearly when I was diagnosed & in the months following & I knew I had to do sth to transform my life.

When I got my diagnosis, I already had been studying about the power of the mind and so I got to work on consciously creating my thoughts, affecting my emotions and raising my vibration. I didn't use traditional vocab associated with breast cancer like 'battle' & 'survive' but chose words that reflected ease like 'heal'. And I never said 'I have breast cancer' - I always referred to it as 'the lump'. It makes it more removed. Oh & also I didn't tell everyone but a select few since I didn't want to have to speak about it all the time.

In the week between diagnosis & the operation, the 3.4cm lump recorded on 2 ultra sounds from different hospitals, was then only 2.4cm. It could have been a coincidence, but I was truly doing all I could to reduce the lump & have clear lymph nodes.

As well as the lumpechtomy, I went the route of diet & exercise at first & also got energy healing work plus joined a support group. The biggest thing I've learnt was about making authentic decisions - you don't have to do what the first doctor tells you to do get many more opnions & find a doctor you like & trust.

A big concern for me was maintaining fertility & what huge decisions I was being asked to make with only a few days allowance. I learnt to take my time, do research & go with decisions I could get behind. Because of this I ended up having radiation & tamoxifen & not chemo... This was quite a process & you can read more about it here :

These days I am coaching other women who have been through treatment and would love to transform their fears to faith and do all they can to ACTIVELY heal - that's what I did. My advice is to do all you can with your mind & emotions to help your treatment & release the victim so you are EMPOWERED & joyful. Fill yourself up with positive stories of remissions so you keep a miraculous mindset. If it's happened before, it can happen for you too.
