#47 Don't Like Food Issues
I've been trying to eat well since my diagnosis. Flaxseed and blueberries! There are endless foods that really can help me prevent recurrence! But now that I know I start chemo in 2 days, I'm scared about what I will be able to eat and what I'll want to eat and if I'll even be able to keep anything down. I've been told by some caring friends, to eat what I want, right now!
So yesterday, Don and I went to one of our favorites places, Mori Ichi.
I heard sushi's not a good idea during chemo. I will miss this for 12 weeks, if that's true!
Being limited about foods and activities reminds me of being pregnant. But I didn't mind giving up coffee and wine for my babies.
So I have years ahead of good eating. And I have 2 days before chemo. So I've made sure to squeeze in a few things that I'm not so sure about later... like Mexican food!
Sweet Cheryl met me for lunch. She was patient waiting for me, since I went to the wrong local Mexican restaurant... which also starts with "L". (I told her it must have been my pre-chemo brain) We even had margaritas, which is exciting since I've tried to stick with red wine, lately.
We talked about lots of things, including our moms. Cheryl and I met when our moms were roommates 8 years ago. Our mother's had Alzheimer's but they were fun and feisty and decorated their room with an Obama poster. Cheers to our moms!
And last night Don and I had a little tiki-time beside the pool. Again, this may not be the healthiest choice, but mine had lots of juice! Cheers again!
This one was for my mental health!
In two days I'll focus again on healthy eating, drinking and exercise, at least when I can! I won't have the motivation of doing it for "the baby", though. Then again, I can do it for me... and my grown babies!

I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
