I’ve not posted in a long time, so I thought I’d come here to bitch and complain. Haha
A new cancer center opened by me, and they have some great programs. One of them is an exercise series with all kinds of classes, including yoga. I was surprised (and somewhat annoyed) to see the class “Yoga for women’s cancers.” Not women with cancer- it’s a class for women with women’s cancers: it includes breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer... basically, cancers that are particular to women (umm... men get breast cancer).
So... what if my cancer metastasized to my woman-organ? Do I not qualify? Are they gonna check? It seems so ludicrous. Am I missing something? I’m thinking of telling them my colon identifies as female.
In other news, I had another scan clear of cancer. Rife with inflammation, but no cancer. So that’s awesome! I wish Bev were around for me to tell. My baby is six now. Unbelievable. My son who was in high school when I was diagnosed lives with his lovely girlfriend in NYC. Going to a Camp Kesem party today with the two younger boys. Come here regularly to check in.
All the best,
