I’m very low today. I was just thinking it might be encouraging to many of us to hear what longer term survivors have done in terms of diet or exercise or anything to help them through the emotional side of things. Please post if you have a moment.
5yr + survivors? Do you have any advice? - SHARE Metastatic ...
Seven years here. First diagnoses was Stage IV to bones, breast and lymph nodes. I take the medicines, had a recurrence, now to bones (slight), liver (last scan showed reduction) and lymph node. I am on chemotherapy and immunotherapy. I take each day as it comes. I accept where I am and deal with it. I exercise everyday, but have cut back. Used to be a triathlete and marathoner. I aim to be in the present moment as I'm able and not dwell in the future or past. I read and listen to uplifting podcasts, I have a great therapist, I take supplements. I've always had a pretty good diet, but still eat as cleanly as I can, mostly vegetarian. I am Reiki certified and do that regularly, get massages, acupuncture. And, try not to let cancer rule my life or define who I am. Whew! There may be more, but that's what I've got for you right now.
All the best,
