How my diet changed after being diagnosed with cancer.

In addition to the medications and the new daily routine, one of the major things that changed quickly in my life after my diagnosis is my diet. I was never someone who really spent all that much time in the kitchen thinking about what was best to put in my body and now it is something that I think about.

Looking back at the hospital, I was actually pleasantly surprised when I got there that you don’t have a standard dinner delivered to you every day anymore and just have to deal with whatever you get. You can order your food like room service.

In the hospital, I was trying to focus on the little joys. One of them was that I could have jello any time I wanted!

At that time, we were learning all about the foods that you should and shouldn’t eat when fighting cancer and much to my disappointment I discovered that Cancer Loves Sugar!

Now that I am home, my mom/Food Coordinator Nancy is the queen of the kitchen and makes sure that I get everything that I need. I even have my own fridge!

A few months ago, I was told that my boobs are trying to kill me and being misdiagnosed for two years allowed them to recruit throughout the rest of my body by way of my spine. Before this, I knew f*ck all about cancer. Now, between sipping chemo cocktails, I want to talk about the truth of living with Stage 4 Breast Cancer with my support system and people I have met along the way to recovery.
