Understanding a Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Written by Dr Karen Tedesco. Posted in Health.

Breast Cancer Understanding your diagnosis
Receiving a breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming.  In the United States up to 1 in 8 women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime and despite those odds, many women who do not have a family history of breast cancer, are shocked when they receive their breast cancer diagnoses.  In addition to the obvious immediate concerns about prognosis, treatment side effects, and managing other components of one’s work and personal life, there also comes a deluge of new information, new terminology, multiple doctor visits and a multitude of advice; both the solicited and unsolicited varieties.

Don’t Be Afraid To Be Your Own Advocate

Breast Cancer Survivor
"Women are taught to look for lumps, but my “lump” was better described as a firmness, more akin to superficial inflammation than an embedded lump.  Women are told to have a mammogram to investigate abnormalities, but radiologists told me that my abnormality looked normal on the screen.  Women are told to visit with a surgeon to inquire about a biopsy, but my first surgeon told me that a biopsy was not needed because I did not have cancer.  After 18 months with an undiagnosed firmness, and at my spouse’s urging, I made an appointment with a new surgeon who was willing to perform a biopsy.  Within two days of the biopsy I had the answer of IBC. If I hadn’t been so persistent in seeking a diagnosis, where would I be now?  I was my own best advocate toward getting the help I needed."

The One Thing That Changes Everything

Anita Moorijani New Book What If  This Is Heaven?We’ve been taught all the wrong things.

This is the overwhelming realization Anita Moorjani had while in the other realm during her near death experience (NDE) in 2006, after a four-year struggle with cancer. In that expanded state, in a realm of unconditional love, she could see clearly that we’re not supposed to suffer with cancer or other illness. She realized that the medical community’s perspective of disease as an enemy to be conquered is completely misguided.
She could also see that we’re not meant to struggle with our finances, work or relationships. We are meant to live joy-filled lives. We are meant to experience heaven on earth. She understood that it is when we are unaware of our true worth and magnificence that we experience pain or struggle.

Fresh Pus Pie

Written by Monster's Cookbook. Posted in Halloween Recipes.

Halloween recipes, Fresh Pus Pie, Monsterly DelishFresh Pus Pie was a firm favorite on the menu of many cadaver cafes up until about a century ago. It was delicious served warm and oozing from the oven or fire pit. The best pus was extracted from diseased humans and it could be very rich so diners were advised to limit themselves to one small slice. A dramatic drop in human diseases that produced oozing boils led to its demise and this modern recipe took over in popularity.

Sufficient.—for 8 monster servings of pie
13 oz sweet shortcrust pastry
a little flour, for dusting
1 cup superfine sugar
