Hello again Michell
I wrote you a reply under my diep concerns... this is so new for me so mtreatmenty reply was hard to understand because I have so many issues with major relevence to breast cancer and my choices for treatment. Depression is known to lower a persons immune system, but I did not find that out until I was already dealing with breast cancer. It is wierd for me to get BC because there is no family history!!!
I have not changed as many things in my life to help prevent any mets as I would like. My husband and I did sell our house and we no longer have a house payment with a 30 year morgage! My sugar addiction is a major problem because I believe sugar feed cancer, but I have high hopes that there is no cancer to feed!
I have one son, Aspen,(age 12) and I have 3 stepsons;15,12,and 9! That has kept me from acting on my suicidal feelings during depression! And I am not ready to have any disease send me to heaven! One bonus is that I would get to be with my sweet mother who passed away the day before 9/11! I so hope she did not have a rough time passing over! It was a busy time in heaven and that is so sad!
I am trying one naturopathic treatment that the oncologist I am seeing is absolutely against... I am using natural progesterone cream to help regulate the high levels of estrogen that the natureopath found in a saliva hormone test. This test was scoffed at by this same oncologist. (By the way I am looking for a new oncologist!) It felt so right when I read a book called something like "What You Doctor Won"t Tell You about Breast Cancer" by Dr. Lee. He has a web site...it is a very personal decision and I can" recomend it to people, but for me it just felt so right it was like it was some sign from... well from God I guess! I am getting a wee bit spiritual because I am feeling my mortality!!! Whatever, eh!!!!
Enough from me for now! Karen in Idaho
