Feel It Completely and Let It Go

For a while there, I had really mastered the art of talking to myself in a positive way. I was able to calm any negative thoughts, calm any anger I was feeling or ill feelings and I was even able to constantly look on the bright side of this tumor. Lately, it's been a little… Continue reading Feel It Completely and Let It Go

Now Back To Your Normally Scheduled Blogging …

Well, hello strangers! I have to admit, I have been TERRIBLE at keeping up with my blog this Summer. Between the gorgeous weather, the 4th of July holiday and my impromptu vacation, I have completely let my blog fall by the wayside and that's not cool.

I SHRUNK MY TUMOR.

I wasn't super nervous for my follow up appointment ... until the night before. The whole time leading up to this visit at Dana Farber I was calm, cool and collected. The MRI really freaked me out the most but the results, at that time, weren't bothersome to me. Then, the night before the appointment… Continue reading I SHRUNK MY TUMOR.

MRI’s: What to Expect

I had my follow up MRI last Friday! I say it excitedly because I am glad it's O V E R. The very first time my PCP told me I needed and MRI I immediately panicked thinking about my claustrophobia. I hate small, confined places. Knowing I can't get out of a small space can… Continue reading MRI’s: What to Expect

It's a real thing, scanxiety. I'm almost 100% positive it's not considered a real word but trust me, it's a real feeling. One that I thought I would never have to feel but since I do, I need to feel it and let it go. These past few months, while on watch and wait, have… Continue reading Scanxiety

We often speak about how we are so opposite and that's how our friendship works. She tends to get me into situations that are out of my… Continue reading How Quickly We Forget

Coffee: A Thing of the Past

I used to be someone who NEEDED their cup of coffee every single morning. I wouldn't truly feel "awake" until I was about half way through my cup. If I ever didn't have a chance to make it myself in the morning or if I was running late and didn't have time to stop and… Continue reading Coffee: A Thing of the Past

Comparison: The Thief of Joy

I saw a blogger the other day who appeared to have the "perfect" blog. Her days seemed to be spent dedicated to capturing the perfect photo, in the perfect outfit, with the perfect back drop. I immediately felt like my blog was inadequate. For a few minutes I even thought about stopping my blog because… Continue reading Comparison: The Thief of Joy
