Why have I have not been writing

December 2, 2009

Ok… October came and went and then November and I refrained from writing my pink ribbon rant.  I think it has been bugging me not to have done so.  Refraining has cost me momentum in writing.  sigh.  Let me just say NO PINK RIBBONS!  There, I feel better now.

I’ve begun to be able to read again – fiction, that is.  After the biopsy, diagnosis, surgery etc with all the diet changes and save-my ass-ness of all that, I discovered that I could no longer concentrate to read.  In fact I could hardly concentrate on any task at all.  I’m happy to say that I have read three books in the past month!  yippee!  One of them I’ve been trying to finish for more than two years.  Yes, it was that bad.  This was a really light weight read too.  Murder mystery … The protagonist is a caterer  (how fun is that?) … love those books!  have read just about everything this author has written, just could not get through “Dark Tort”!  Till now!

And, I’m knitting for real now.  I’ve begun taking lessons and am knitting a beautiful shawl.  To see what I’m working on, go to

http://www.knitty.com   look for “clapotis”.  Very pretty.   It also requires concentration that I did not know would return.

Something for sure has shifted.  Still waiting to see what it is.

Anybody else knit?

    Sweet Liz–I am in complete agreement about pink ribbons–Let’s start a movement!!
    Re: the concentration–You were hit by an emotional two-by-four–You have to recover psychologically from that; as well as from the very real physical aftereffects of the chemotherapy. To be able to read again is such a wonderful step forward.
    You’ve been through so much; but now there is a wonderful new life waiting for you–filled with music, friends, and there soon will be a beautiful new home!

    Hi Liz!

    No pink ribbon stuff here. I also think instead of “run for the cure” there should be a “run for prevention”. lol seriously though if we knew how to prevent it then we wouldn’t need a cure, at least not their cure.

    Glad to hear you can concentrate again. I have been wanting to take a knitting class for awhile now, I just need to find the time!

    On a side note have you ever hear of a detox product called Metel Magic?

    I’ve never heard of Metal Magic,though cilantro and chlorella are both really good at grabbing heavy metals and escorting them out. I think I would rather take a handful of good green chlorella tablets. It would be interesting to use this product and document how well it works with some lab testing.
    How about a run for detox?
    It sure is good to see you here again! Feeling better?

    I run all the time, I need something more! Baseline nutritionals has done some testing and if at the end of the 6 weeks your levels are not lower you can get your money back. naturalnews.com suggested this product. I may try it, just researching right now.

    I have read that you need the cilantro to get the metals out and into the blood and then the chlorella will carry it out

    For metal testing, what do you suggest? I had a bio energy test (BEST test). Mercury and 2 other were high. Not sure about the realiability of that test though.

    thanks for all your insights!!

    Angela, oops! this comment was hiding somewhere… just seeing it yesterday… wordpress issue? Anyway, as far as I know, cilantro and chorella are both good. I used more aggressive chelating agents (DMSA and EDTA, and now OSR), and had Doctor’s Data run the test. In order to do that you take DMSA, a larger dose based on body weight, and then collect urine for 6 or 24 hours. Then you mail in a sample following their instructions. Ask your health care persons if they know about Doctor’s Data. If not, I think you can go to them directly.
