Today is my 48th Birthday! My 10 year old son Cody said to me, “there is no way you are 48. Maybe low – mid 30s!”
Thanks Cody for reminding me that age is just a #. What’s most important is how we feel… and how we feel on the inside can’t help but shine through on the outside.
What I feel today is love and gratitude. I want to thank all the people who have taught me, guided me, encouraged me, supported me and shared the journey with me. This journey, which began 3.5 years ago, has lead me to an incredibly empowering place…and I can honestly say, it just keeps getting better!
I am often asked about my health and what am I currently doing?
I feel perfect — and I always have. Despite being frightened by well-meaning doctors and surgeons, and despite 3 surgeries, I believe my DCIS situation was a case of OVERdiagnosis and OVERtreatment (Please see my post titled “Overdiagnosis is a BIG problem.”)
I feel fantastic. Lab tests — stellar. MRI — clear. Attitude — grateful. One thing DCIS brought to my life was a new awareness and understanding of true health. And THAT is the journey I am on now. My diet has remained the same over the last 3 years and so have my supplements. Please see “Health Tips.” I have only added more greens to my smoothies!
I am currently in the process of becoming a “Certified Nutritionist” and I will continue to share what I learn. I am also collaborating with Sandie Walters on a new DCIS website project which is soon to launch! We have re-named DCIS to mean “Dilemmas, Choices & Integrative Solutions.” Stay healthy and stay tuned! 🙂 Donna
