My October

Well, it’s October, which means it’s breast cancer awareness month. Which also means I sort of feel obligated to write something, anything to acknowledge it. But the truth is breast cancer awareness month no longer means the same thing to me as it did before my diagnosis. From now on, breast cancer awareness will be... Continue Reading →

Phantom… Sensations

Warning: Inappropriate post ahead! Y'all. This post is going to be pretty X-Rated, but I'm going to post it anyway. I've done some searching online, and I'm only getting a little bit of info, so if this helps someone else going through this along side me, great. If not, maybe it'll make for a good...

The “Other Side” of Cancer

So, this time I want to write about what life is like now, months after the diagnosis and [the first] surgery. Not just my complaining about bills and playing phone tag with... Continue Reading →

Cancer Messed With the Wrong Broad

Somebody fucked up. Excuse my language, but it’s true. I got my biomarker results back from Duke yesterday. The Estrogen levels in my invasive cancer were 98% and my Progesterone was 58%. These are much better numbers than the ones Novant gave me of 21% and 22% respectively. I don't know where or how they... Continue Reading →

The Retrieval

So, I had the egg retrieval done yesterday. Finally, after all the injections and bloodwork and ultrasounds (oh my!), I went into the REACH center Sunday morning (between 7-8:30am, mind you) where they measured the follicles and did bloodwork. They called me later to tell me I'd been cleared to take the trigger shots that... Continue Reading →
