I've changed a few things about my diet since being diagnosed with PC two years ago. I try to adhere to the food pyramid, which for me means adding more fruits and vegetables and not making meat the central food at a meal.
I continue with an exercise program that I've been good about for the past 10 years. This was helpful in my quick recovery from surgery and continues to keep me in good shape.
I'm a different person than I was before getting prostate cancer. Cancer may go away, but having had cancer never does. I am less irritable, discontented and frustrated with life. Things that used to roll off me like buckshot off a duck's heart, now slide off me like water off a duck's back.
I am more nourishing of my spiritual life than I was before cancer. The Vietnam War was the big event that clued me in to my mortality, but cancer loudly reminded me of it.
My relationships are of primary importance to me today rather than things. I try to be thankful for those whom I love and love them better.
