I've finally finished reading both my books and I'm really looking forward to the new recipe book coming out in December. My whole30 journey is an attempt at regaining my health post cancer treatment. While I've been 'clean' from a cancer perspective for 1390 days, the toll that chemo and radiation took on my body has been significant. Damaged nerve receptors, chemo induced fibromyalgia (whodda thunk it), cognitive function deficits, osteopenia, chronic bronchitis (asthmatic since age 8 and I think the radiation played a roll in my bronchitis), PTSD, depression, anxiety and weight gain. But hey, I'm still here LOL I'm hoping that whole30 will fix the fibromyalgia and I wonder how the 'hormone balancing' will effect someone like me, who takes Arimidex due to my hormone positive cancer. Why am I nervous? I have a bad sugar addiction! I love fruit, most veggies (ixnay on the onionsay), most proteins but its my sugar addition that I fear most. I found it humorous to read that this isn't hard, beating cancer is hard - but I gotta tell you, my sugar addiction scares me more than when I faced chemo and radiation. What I do know...I'm tired of being in pain all the time, I'm tired of being 70lbs heavier than when I was first diagnosed, I'm tired of being addicted to sugar and I'm tired of being tired lol I want off this merry go round! Anyone in a similar situation? Advice?
