Profile Information

About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
I have recently been diagnosed with uterine fibroids. I am severely anemic and have difficulties taking the iron supplement. Your site was suggested to me in an effort to help me find a way to rebuild my iron and fight these tumors. The anemia nearly killed me...and I still have children to raise. I want to be here for them and will do whatever it takes to do so. Thank you.
How did you hear about our community?
From a listmate on the uterinefibroids yahoo group.
What dietary interests do you have? (clean eating, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, weight loss, etc?)
Maybe 5% if that.
What is your motivation for joining Real Food Rehab? (moral support, education, recipes, inspiration, fitness tips, etc.)
All of the above! I would love information on how to safely go from being a "regular eater" to a raw foods, vegan, gluten & dairy-free lifestyle. I know that I will be healthier in the long run. Once I have the anemia and low oxygen dealth with, then I can also pursue exercise to get even healthier.
RFR Oath: I acknowledge that everyone is at a different point along their health & wellness journey and I will respect the individual progress and needs of others as they make lifestyle choices and changes of their own.

Thank you to all of you that have continued to write to me during my absence. It has been an emotional year+ since my surgery.

We have back-slidden in regards to the raw food lifestlye. However, my husband and I are trying again. We know that our lives depend on it!

Although I have not gained weight since my surgery, I still need to lose it. I am stuck bouncing up and down within a 10 pound range. I need to lose about 60 pounds and my husband needs to lose approximately 80…

Hi folks,

It has been a zillion years it seems since I last posted here. I think my last blog post was on August 20 (or around that time, anyway). I was supposed to have surgery that day, but it was cancelled due to very high blood pressure. It was rescheduled for September 10. I psyched myself up for that new date, convinced myself not to be scared. I was rarin' to go...and the surgeon called me the afternoon of September 9th to say that surgery had been cancelled again…


Rollercoasters or is that Roller Coasters?

Anyway, I am on one. :)

My GP appointment was moved from the 20th to the 13th. My appointment with the surgeon was on the 17th. Surgery was scheduled for the 20th...yes, today. Instead of a fibroid removal, they are going to do a hysterectomy. The fibroids have done significant damage to the uterus. It isn't even where it is supposed to be anymore. It has gone on walk-about. Oh well.

"This morning?" you ask. "Then how are you posting when you should be looped up…


Apologies and Great News!

First, I want to apologize for disappearing for so long. Things have been crazy busy here at home, mostly in a good way.

Stacey, I'm sorry that I never responded to your note. I read it, but then kept getting power surges that rebooted my computer every time I tried to respond. Hopefully the computer and electricity monsters won't notice now. Thanks for sharing your story with me and explaining about your illness. You're in my prayers. Thanks for your…

Thanks for adding me as a friend, Suzanne. This is one of my favorite combinations for making a green smoothie. Blend: Two oranges, huge handful of baby spinach, liquid Stevia to taste for sweetness, ½ teaspoon vanilla if you like, almond milk for my liquid and flavor. Add ice or serve over ice. Enjoy! It reminds me of the sugary Orange Julius my children would buy out at the Mall. Have a great day : )
